Ms. King is the rudest, most boring, most discriminative teacher I have ever had. The disparity between her behavior towards the students she likes and to others is suffocating. She places herself on such a high pedestal in which everything she says is law and anyone who opposes her is undermining her position as a teacher. I can’t remember any of her lessons because they were mind-numbing and taught in the most monotone voice ever known to man. THANK GOD SHE’S RETIRING.

Nice woman who is willing to help. Gives just a right amount of homework and her tests are very reasonable! Not like some other teachers I've had to make the test 1000x harder. Low stress, straightforward, but sometimes doesn't get her points across in time or clearly. Often, I must refer to the book or a tutor for help on homework. Also, she grades things REALLY slowly!

Probably the best teacher in Arcadia High School. At very least, the best teacher in the math department. Her tests in AP Calculus BC are regular difficulty for an AP class (meaning that they're hard). However, she explains everything extremely well, so getting an A in her class is still easier than getting an A in Pre-Calc/Calc A.

Ms King is AMAZING! She's the best math teacher I've ever had! She's incredibly helpful and understanding. Plus, she's hilarious and very friendly! I had trouble with certain problems/topics and she's always there to go through it with me until I understand. She's great!

She is the best math teacher I've ever had! I'm not that great at math truthfully, but Ms. King makes it so easy to understand. The workload is always reasonable and her class never gives me stress, e

I just don't know how you can not LOVE her. she makes Calc BC freaking fun, cute, and easy because she makes the course straightforward and gives you sufficient time to learn. She's the best math teacher at AHS. hands down!

she's a really great teacher and very into her subject no matter what it is unless its geometry or stats. if you dont understand stuff, she makes the time and effort to come early or stay late to help you. she doesnt want anyone to fail. she's always trying to make teaching math more fun which is kind of hard but she does it. hope you get her once in your high school career so you know what a good math teacher really is. she's only angry if you have a bad excuse for ditching her class or ditching in general

King is good in that she jokes around and makes the class somewhat interesting, and its funny how she bags on the Bulletin and the ASB people who come in (although its kind of sad watching them quiver). What I dont like is that she gets really mean and she plays favorites. a LOT.

I am happy the class is over. King is the worse teacher. She thinks she is the best teacher in Arcadia High School, but she is not. A lot of students do not like the way she teaches and treats her students.

Whoever keeps on bashing on K. King probably shouldn't be in her class. I was a former student of hers (graduated back in '93) @ Arcadia & she's 1 of the best math teachers out there, period. Got us 5's on the AP Calc test.
