Learning for All… All for Learning

Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School, one of six elementary schools in Urbana School District #116, is located in northwest Urbana in the King Park neighborhood. Our students come from over 50 countries and speak more than 40 languages. The multicultural, multilingual nature of the school population provides a rich learning environment for King School students. The presence in the building of teachers from other countries makes it possible to provide instruction in a language other than English to most students.

King Elementary School is a Professional Learning Community

We continue to build our Professional Learning Community , which positively impacts our teachers, students, and parents. All grade level PLC teams collaborate regularly to develop SMART goals, norms, and action plans to best improve student learning.

We challenge ourselves through our mission and vision to answer these four questions:

  1. What should students know and be able to do?
  2. How will we know that students are learning?
  3. How do we respond when students do not learn?
  4. How do we respond when students learn more?
