Originally opened as James Whitcomb Riley Elementary-Junior High School in 1957 on what then was Nebraska Street. The school was renamed for civil rights leader Martin Luther King in 1982.
During the 2004-05 school year King became a pre-kinder to grade 8 academy. It also was one of five East Side campuses that obtained internal charter school status with an emphasis on an increased alignment – or cohesion - of the curriculum for all grades and subjects.
Martin Luther King Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American Baptist minister and activist who was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs and inspired by Mahatma Gandhi's non-violent activism.
