  • King Tech Insider Information


    Beginning in the 2018-19 school year, Martin Luther King, Jr. Career Center (KCC) has rebranded into Martin Luther King, Jr. Technical High School (King Tech) by adding full-time students. For the first time in our 44-year history, we will become a fully accredited high school and graduate many of our students from King Tech.  Come and be a part of a new way to design your education.

    Be among this group of students who will design their own Personalized Learning Plan to include both technical training and core academics. Check back often for more information. King Tech Showcase evenings are scheduled periodially throughout the school year. Check back for this year's schedule.
