King’s Open Houses – Invite your friends!
As we enter the enrollment season for the 2017-18 school year, we could use your help to spread the word about King’s.  Please invite your friends to attend an upcoming open house. Because so many of our referrals come from King’s families, we offer the Win-Win Program for our domestic students. The Win-Win program is designed to thank King’s families for referring friends and families.  A tuition discount of $500 per new student is available.

Office Communications:
When you are emailing the office, please be sure to email both Mrs. de Langen at mdelangen@kingsschools.org and Miss Soriano at ksoriano@kingsschools.org. Any change in student pick-up at the end of the day needs to go through the office.  This is the only way to be sure your student gets the message.  If you send an email to the teacher, he/she may not be available to respond due to teaching students.  Please Call Mrs. de Langen or Miss Soriano at 206-546-7258.
