King School is an independent, college preparatory day school serving students from Pre-kindergarten through Grade 12. We are a diverse, vibrant learning community dedicated to educational excellence and the fullest academic and personal achievement of our students.
Drawing students from over 30 communities in Fairfield County, Connecticut and New York, King has a long history of academic excellence within a community that has always placed the individual student at the center. King is the product of the merger over time of four different schools in the local area: Low-Heywood, King’s Day School, Thomas School, and the Low-Heywood Thomas School. The School completed the process of renaming and rebranding itself in 2016 as King School. The School continues to distinguish itself by showcasing the deeply rooted, defining elements of the School, which stem from each of the founding institutions, and which enable its PreK-Grade 12 students to thrive: exceptional faculty; student-centered approach to teaching and learning; academic excellence; a culture of integrity, kindness, perseverance, and respect.
