King School

1450 Newfield Ave
Stamford, CT 06905

About our school: At King School, we set a better standard by intentionally exploring how all facets of diversity and identity shape our perceptions of fact and truth. We know inspiration flourishes when students further their learning alongside people who don’t think alike, look alike, or act alike.  Diverse voices are heard and valued at King, and we are committed to making our school even more inclusive so that it reflects our community and the world our students will impact.

When students are known, supported, and understood at a school, they feel more confident in exploring new things and taking risks. As a result, they are more likely to discover new strengths and push beyond what’s required to “make the grade.” From discovering the world around them in PreKindergarten to crafting senior projects, King School students thrive as they embrace teaching and learning experiences that are age appropriate, spur self-discovery, and inspire greater ambitions. Classmates and teachers become trusted collaborators, mentors, and sounding boards

Open Houses:

  • Middle & Upper School (incoming grades 6 – 11):
    • Sunday, October 6th, 1pm – 4pm
  • Lower School  (incoming PreK – 5):
    • Sunday, November 3rd, 12:30pm – 3:30pm
