King’s Junior High

Christian Middle School in Shoreline, WA

A Place to Grow

King’s Junior High provides a structured, nurturing community where students mature beyond the elementary years and prepare for high school with rigorous academics, leadership training, and sportsmanship.

The core subjects of Math, Science, English, Social Studies, Physical Education, and Bible allow teachers to meet the unique learning and social needs of students more effectively. A variety of elective classes are available and qualifying students may take honors Math classes, Spanish I, and Washington State History. 

Core academic classes (Math, Science, English, and World History) meet on a block schedule of 85-minute periods. Students have two core classes during each eighteen-week term; P.E. and Bible alternate every nine weeks. Elective classes are either nine weeks or one term.  

Bible

Students in Junior High study the Bible in its entirety with an Old and New Testament survey.

Our goal at King’s is to teach, mentor, equip, and disciple students to be in relationship with Jesus Christ. We do this through teaching biblical literacy, equipping students to embrace their identity in Christ, and discipleship or spiritual mentorship. The King’s educational experience distinguishes the Bible as supreme authority in life and equips our students to be leaders able to live out their faith as a practical demonstration of God’s love.
