C. E. King Middle School (KMS) is committed to not only meeting the academic needs of all students, but to focus on the whole child. KMS began offering the 21st Century After School Program on September 4th, 2018 servicing over 100 families in grades 6th-8th during both before & after school time. The goal of the program known as the Teens Reaching Ultimate Excellence (T.R.U.E. Academy) is to "create experiences beyond the classroom" extending learning time for each student using a discovery learning approach through hands-on exploration. The after school program is the catalyst to assist in closing the achievement gap with a long range goal of decreasing the dropout rate and increasing academic performance.
