Mr. King is a VERY experienced teacher. His class is very structured and he teaches really well. He has a lot of the stuff he teaches about, like swords and armor, and is overall loves what he teaches and is really willing to pass on his knowledge.

You can tell he's very passionate about what he does and I can respect that. Just , his type of teaching works for some people an not the same for others. I know personally I cant really learn by copying off a projected sheet and have him explain it. But that's just me. A lot of people love his class and I can understand that. He's a nice and funny teacher and you can tell he truly cares about what he does.

King's been out there. He's seen it all. He even got hit by lightning once, no joke. His teaching method is unique, he writes them onto transparencies and puts them up on this old projector. His classes are really interesting, there are a bunch of activities and mini "games" throughout the year. He has a locked cabinet in the corner full of historically accurate flak jackets, spears, roman armor, swords, morning stars, and more. He also has a pet rabbit. He's a bit quirky but we love him anyway.

very good teacher, knows what he's talking about, has the notes pre typed so its easy to copy down. but he doesn't care if you're failing because its not his problem so you have to stay on top of your grade and try extra hard. He doesn't give extra credit so homework test and quizzes is all you can rely on. make sure you don't use your phone in class he always sees and always takes it away

I had Mr king freshman year, and it was the best class of the day for me. He is a very nice, understanding guy who knows what he is talking about. Very interesting class and easy homework. Tests are fair and he makes the class very fun.

I am a senior now and looking back to my Freshman year he was one of my favorite teachers. He has very interesting lessons and will bring in items to show you be it a sword or chainmail. Very cool guy! Although homework is typically the same thing every night and not too difficult although it can still be alot. Likes his notebooks organized in a very particular way as well.

I had Mr. King for US History in the 20th Century for my senior year. I kept every note I took in that class and even brought them with me to college and I look at them every once in a while. I liked his class and I believe it prepared me for college because my note taking skills rose to a new level after taking that class lol.

Mr. King is a really nice teacher, but you can expect to take TONS of notes in his class. I don't love his note taking strategies too much, but his tests are pretty fair.

An amazing teacher! He really makes history interesting and really knows what he's talking about. None of his stuff is too hard, he's really nice and laid back, and we do lots of cool hands-on stuff. He also has a great format for note-taking, which there is alot of, but it works to perfection. Go Mr. King!
