    It is with great Irish pride that I welcome you to Grace King High School, whether it be in person or via the website. You will find our faculty and staff, our earth shakers and world changers, eager and ready to work diligently with our students each and every school day. As a faculty, we are committed to ensuring that our students, no matter where they are in the world strive to be readers, writers, and critical thinkers. In the Grace King community, everyone is held accountable for teaching and learning. Our fours A's: attitude, attendance, attentiveness, and accountability are the four corners of the foundation which supports our work and serves as guiding tenets for academic success.  

    I invite you to return to the website should you need information about Grace King events, personnel, and academics.  Although this year may have its challenges, I am looking forward to a banner year at Grace King. We know that Life is sweet at Grace King, and sweet success will come with maximum efforts.
