Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Positive Learning Community is a vibrant learning community that celebrates the diversity of its students in grades 6 through 8. At King PLC we believe that all students and staff have the ability to learn from one another. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School is a positive learning community with high academic expectations for all students, where cultural diversity is celebrated, and the key to student success is parent and community participation.
We believe that providing a safe and nurturing environment where children and adults are respected, appreciated, valued, and encouraged to develop creates a sense of belonging and a lifelong love for learning. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Positive Learning Community is proud to be an anchor of the Blue Hills Community.
