King School in Stamford, Connecticut has selected Ian Symmonds & Associates for strategic plan development. Our work began in January and will continue throughout the spring and summer. We are excited to welcome this extraordinary institution into the ISA family of schools.
King School is a highly selective, PreKindergarten-Grade 12 co-ed, independent day school. King is actually the convergence of four distinct independent schools that, from the beginning, shared similar educational missions. The school believes academic excellence stems from the interaction among a challenging program that requires students to be engaged, active learners; support by exceptional faculty; and a kind community.
King is dedicated to preparing its students to thrive in a rapidly changing world. The school provides an excellent, progressive education, grounded in the traditional disciplines of the arts and sciences, committed to the nurturing of individual potential, and designed to promote critical thinking and reasoned reflection. Using rich and innovative methods, King’s Teachers facilitate each student’s fullest academic and personal achievement. They champion the development of character, self-confidence, and talent through challenging intellectual, creative, athletic, leadership, and service opportunities.
King believes that individual accomplishment must go hand in hand with respect for others. The King culture of respect fosters collaboration as well as independence. They community embraces human and cultural diversity and values responsible citizenship.
