About Our Schedule

King is set up like a confederacy of schools. Each house has flexibility with the design of its own schedule within a school wide framework. Frequently, houses choose to temporarily modify their schedules to meet the needs of their expeditions.

In the spring, each house receives a "skeleton" schedule that indicates when the students will attend physical education, foreign language, and reading classes. House teams then work together to schedule in core classes and related arts.

Key components of this kind of scheduling include:

  • Eliminating school wide bells to change classes;
  • Providing each house with its own wing or section of the school;
  • Integrating related arts teachers into house teams (see related arts).
