King-Murphy ensures that students benefit from a healthy balance of expert curricula, state-of-the-art technology, significant integration of the arts, and robust physical activity.


Scholastic Achievements

We are an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) school utilizing the Primary Years Program (PYP), preparing students for success in a global economy by focusing on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside.

We have been a John Irwin School of Excellence since 2004. The John Irwin awards are given to schools that demonstrate exceptional academic achievement over time. These schools reflect exceptional performance in Math, English Language Arts, and Science.

 

 

We ensure all our students needs are met by also providing a rigorous Gifted & Talented program for grades K-6, and led by a qualified teacher on a weekly basis.

 

 

Our curricula is wide-ranging and meets both Colorado standards as well as allowing the flexibility for us to effectively implement the IB PYP programme. These programs include:
