John R. King integrates the fine and performing arts into a rigorous academic curriculum. With state-of-the art technology in all classrooms and a recent $10.2 million renovation, our school prepares students for life and the real world of work in the 21st Century.
The Academy was identified by the Skillman Foundation as a High Performing-Good Schools grant recipient in 2010. We were previously named a Skillman Good School in 2005 and again in 2006.
The school’s name was officially changed to John R. King Academic and Performing Arts Academy for the 2004-2005 school year to reflect our unique position of offering a full instrumental and vocal music program, as well as dance, drama and visual arts.
“We are on the Rise!…Watch Us Soar!”

All students will have the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to thrive in our city, our nation, our world.
