Open Quote This is a real high school! My daughter has the opportunity to participate in so many activities (band, drama, art, basketball, swimming, volleyball, track, dance, debate). The school is so welcoming and inviting to all visitors. My daughter loves it there and I have been nothing but excited for her to be here. The school is always bustling with activities.

Open Quote I am very happy with King -- it not only has a rigorous curriculum, but it has an outstanding variety of extracurricular activities so that students can graduate as well-rounded citizens. Also, King has an excellent principal who is committed to the school and its students; the marching band is the best in the city; and last year, graduates earned about $70 million in college scholarships! If you haven't considered King as an option for your child, you should definitely give it a look. This isn't your father's King High School. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

Data source: Illinois State Board of Education

About Immunization Rates:
Each year, public and private schools across the state are required to send data about their students’ vaccination status to the Illinois State Board of Education. The state Board of Education compiles the data and shares them with the Illinois Department of Public Health. Public health officials use the data to monitor trends, track compliance with state immunization laws and identify pockets of vulnerability should an outbreak occur.
