Welcome to Martin Luther King High School

One Community, One School,
One Focus… Student Success!

It is with great excitement that I welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. A special greeting to the incoming 9th grade Class of 2022! It is a tremendous honor for me to serve as the principal of the Promise Academy @ Martin Luther King High School, and I look forward to building on our past 46 years of success.

Our partnership is critical to the success of our scholars. If there are any issues that you feel are not being addressed by the school, please do not hesitate to contact us. Open lines of communication are essential to ensure we work together in the best interest of the students.

Our work revolves around our mission statement. Please take a moment to review the Martin Luther King HS Mission statement: The teachers, administrators, and staff of The Promise Academy at Martin Luther King High School, in collaboration with parents, guardians, community members and others, are committed to ensuring that all MLK students are respected for who they are and are empowered to grow both academically and personally. We are a student-centered school where everything we do is directly aligned with student success. We absolutely believe in the worth, intelligence, special gifts and dignity of each and every student. We passionately and with a sense of urgency are devoted to constantly creating and maintaining a safe, orderly and secure environment where high levels of teaching and learning occur and where our students understand that they are royal scholars whom we expect to represent the great legacy of Dr. King.
