​​​It is my pleasure to serve and lead the great learning community of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School.  King Elementary is a neighborhood school that has a proud tradition of engaging learning experiences and academic excellence.  In 2010, King Elementary was recognized for excellence when it was designated a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.

​The success of our students is the number one focus of our experienced and professional staff.  The entire King community works together to support each individual student's growth and learning.  We encourage our families and community members to participate in this effort by joining our involved and active PTA, volunteering in our classrooms, and supporting the many events that take place at King.


As the proud principal of King, it is my personal mission to provide a fun and safe learning environment that allows students to engage in and enjoy learning in this awesome community setting.  Thanks for your interest in Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary.  If you need more information feel free to contact me at christopher.lehman@d11.org or call the school at 328-6000.
