History Of MLK Middle

Welcome to Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School, an exemplary school in Prince George’s County.  As a staff, we support the mission of Prince George’s County Public Schools, which is to ensure that all students acquire knowledge and develop skills that will enable them to become productive citizens and lifetime learners.  Strong MLK School Photoinstructional leadership, high expectations and an emphasis on learning in a safe and orderly school environment characterize MLK.  Teams of teachers will closely monitor your academic progress and make appropriate instructional adjustments to your program.  All stakeholders; parents, students, and staff sign a Parent Agreement Form outlining expectations for attendance, behavior and academics.  It is our belief that each and every student who attends MLK has the potential to be successful if he or she is committed to striving for academic excellence.

MLK parents are expected to be involved to a high degree in the academic progress of their children.  A computerized progress report and report card are sent home twice each quarter giving parents an update on current academic progress in each subject.  Parent, student and teacher conferences are scheduled to discuss overall progress and to develop a plan of action to be mutually implemented.  Parents receive a weekly newsletter to apprise them of current events.  Homework is assigned on a nightly basis to reinforce the teaching and learning process.  Students are required to use their Agenda Books to record homework assignments and parents are expected to monitor progress to ensure completion of assignments.
