The primary mission of the Martin Luther King, Jr. High School for Law, Advocacy and Community Justice is to create a climate that promotes excellence in learning. Our goal is that students will develop into persons who are intelligent, critical thinkers, and supportive members of their communities. This is accomplished by everyone working collaboratively to meet the needs of students within the confines of a smaller, more personal learning atmosphere. We develop a special culture from the onset that celebrates success with high expectations for students as well as adults. The students will be immersed in the study, inquiry, and advocacy of law, requiring their involvement in community service, thus enabling them to realize their individual potential throughout the greater community. Our hope is that students will view themselves as pioneers of the new millennium, and we expect them to be counted among the great success stories of tomorrow.
