Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Academic Middle School enrolls students from neighborhoods throughout San Francisco. The diverse and multicultural atmosphere of the school attracts students from all racial/ethnic groups. All students receive equitable access. We focus on a curriculum that is meaningful and relevant, valuing relationships between staff and students, students and their peers, and the student-community.
Our focus for all students is the demonstration of scholarship, sportsmanship, mentorship, leadership, and entrepreneurship. The basic philosophy of the school is to cooperate, participate, communicate, work, and learn together in order to produce a harmonious, productive, pluralistic society of lifelong learners. Our mission is to ensure that all students realize their potential in academic, creative, physical, and social endeavors. We accomplish this through the combined efforts of our students, families, staff, school district, and community.
