King City High School

Principal's Corner

Greetings from King City High School and welcome to our website. I am glad you have taken the time to learn more about our school.
Over the past two years King City High School has made huge gains in our academic progress, student involvement in athletics, and on-campus clubs. All across our campus there is a shared feeling that we have departed from the not-so-good days and we have embarked upon a positive new course.

In the past 2 years we have increased our API score by 59 points, for a score of 739. California expects an 8-12 point gain each year. We have surpassed these expectations, and have found ourselves with an API score that places us near the top of all schools in Monterey County. Our work is not done, as we continue our improvement, our focus needs to be on those students who are not performing as well as their classmates.

This year we have welcomed someone new to our campus, Atanacia Mares, our new Student Services Coordinator. Mrs. Mares is here to help students be successful academically. One of her many goals will be to help students make plans for life after high school.

We now have 13 clubs on campus which provide our students with a large selection of fun and exciting activities. Our "Club Rush Day" this Fall was a huge success and we look forward to a bigger and better event next Fall. Under the guidance of Mrs. Adrianna Veysey, our Leadership/Activities teacher, class has a record enrollment and is doing an excellent job generating new ideas for student activities.
Our athletic teams continue to do well in their league which is evident in the number of our teams moving on to the post season.

For over 100 years King City High School has been recognized as a school with many achievements. As we enter into our second centennial we are confident that this tradition will continue.

If you have any question for me feel free to contact me by phone , 831-385-5461 ext. 3244, or by email,

Yours in education,

Ms. Janet Sanchez Matos
