Integrating Faith and Learning
High School is about figuring out who you are. We have great teachers and great community – the best combination of faculty, academic and inspiration to get you ready for college and the rest of your life!
As a block schedule school, classes are longer than usual as students only take a few classes at a time, for a total of nine classes over the course of a year. With this unique schedule, teachers are able to give more time and a deeper understanding of each subject. Our classes are similar to college classes so students are prepared for their next academic steps after graduation.
King’s offers nine AP classes in English, Spanish, studio art, history, math and science and multiple Honor classes in all disciplines.
Choir, drama, photography, cuisines, digital photography, drawing, painting and ceramics are all offered at King’s High School.
The King’s drama program produces two plays each year providing many opportunities to participate in theater.
The King’s High School Concert Choir is an elective, mixed ensemble comprised of students grades 9-12. The choir sings a wide variety of music ranging from Renaissance and Classical to World Music, Gospel and Spirituals. Along with performing in concerts throughout the year, students in Concert Choir use their gifts to share the gospel with other King’s students and the surrounding community.
Abundant Life is a select vocal group with a student rhythm section. The group sings all styles of music, focusing on jazz and gospel. Along with competing at local and regional jazz and concert festivals, Abundant Life uses their gift of music to minister to the local community.
Living Faith is a select group with student rhythm section. They sing all styles of music including jazz, where they have had first place wins at both the Reno Jazz Festival and the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival. The Living Faith rhythm section was honored in 2012 to not only win the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, but also to be the first High School trio to be invited to perform for the Festival’s closing concert. Living Faith was chosen to be featured in a concert for the 2010 American Choral Directors Association Conference. Living Faith is also involved in missions work, such as the KHS Live drama troupe that ministered to Jamaican and Haitian communities in Miami, FL. In the past, the group has traveled to the Dominican Republic, Ukraine, Japan, Korea, Honduras, and Costa Rica.
King’s Chamber Orchestra is designed to develop musical understanding through ensemble participation and individual skill development. Each member will develop his or her skills on their particular instrument. The orchestra rehearses and performs works of the various orchestral and chamber repertoires. It is to improve on ensemble playing skills with a strong emphasis on developing music reading, working as an ensemble and musicianship skills.
Besides King’s concerts, the orchestra participates in the WMEA solo/ensemble, awards evening, graduation, and spring musicals under the direction of Miss Eun Cho.
