Welcome to King

Welcome to the new school year at 

Martin Luther King, Jr. School 

We are proud to announce that a student-led effort has prompted PPS to officially refer our school as Martin Luther King, Jr. School. You may abbreviate MLK Jr. School if you like, but please help us respect the full name of the man who continues to inspire us daily.

The current Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook can be found at bottom of the following page: http://www.pps.net/Page/1065

The District is collaborating with the Portland Association of Teachers to update this document to align with recent changes in State Law (SB 553). 

All schools are concurrently engaged in a process of creating school specific School Climate Handbooks in collaboration with staff, students, families, and community partners to meet the unique needs of each school community.  

King PK-8 School is a thriving Turnaround Arts and International Baccalaureate school in the heart of NE Portland.
