Working to create a new mark for King Middle School, involve research into who they are and how they operate. There was a tour of the school itself and talking to students and learning how much they love their school and what it means to them socially and educationally. Having talks with the faculty and understanding the schools mission and unique teaching style became key in finding out who they really are.
Beginning with the student handbook, reading and understanding who they are and how they teach. Looking at past projects the school has done with the community and how they are involved in the neighborhoods where they live.
They teach with "Expeditions" where they tackle a project in the real world and in doing so cover all the normal subjects in school by combining them to not just learn about a problem in the world but to find solutions to it.
