King City High School

Principal's Corner

I would like to welcome you to King City High School; this school year 2015-2016.  Serving as the principal is a great honor and a great responsibility. It is a privilege to lead this staff, students and the community for the fourth year.

On behalf of all the staff, I’d like to welcome you and your children to King City High School for the 2015-2016 school year.  Whether your child is a student who returns or a new student, we hope to make this school year something great for your son/daughter.  At King City High School we are aware that our sons/daughters need to be ready to meet the needs, challenges, and demands of today’s world.  Our staff is committed to giving your son/daughter the best education to prepare them for their future endeavors. 

King City High School offers extracurricular activities in sports such as football, volleyball, cross country, basketball, soccer, wrestling, track, baseball, swimming, and softball.  We also offer a variety of clubs and organizations including Leadership, Future Farmers of America, Yearbook, Art, and LGBT to name a few.

At King City High School, we firmly believe that a strong home and school partnership will help our students succeed.  To assist in all aspects of quality education at King City High School, both students and parents are strongly encouraged to take advantage of our valuable resources.  Please make sure to meet with our counselors and communicate with them regularly regarding your child’s progress. Please take advantage of our AERIES Parent Portal to stay informed in the areas of attendance and academic progress of your son/daughter.  Constant communication will ensure that your son/daughter will have a productive career in high school.  Parents play an important role at King City High School (KCHS), and with your support we will make a significant difference in the lives of our students.  We highly encourage all parents and members of the community to belong to Mustang Bench, our FFA Parent Boosters, and our KCHS PTO Organizations. (Enclosed you will find informational flyers for each one).

You, as a parent, have placed great confidence in King City High School (KCHS).  We understand the importance of that trust and we promise to work in the best interest of our students and community.
