“ It simply makes sense that if we are to expect children to be knowledgeable, responsible, and caring—and to be so despite significant obstacles—we must teach social and emotional skills, attitudes, and values with the same structure and attention that we devote to academic subjects.”

We welcome you to the King Philip Family…. and look forward to seeing you in September! Please join us for refreshments in the cafeteria. Quest Families, please move forward for the Quest Information Session.
