King high located in Tampa, Florida is tired of being criticized and labeled as a bad school. According to a report some parent in Temple Terrace would prefer to send their child to private school rather than go to King High School. ” Still, some city leaders believe the district should change King’s attendance boundary to make the school smaller and contain mostly Temple Terrace students.”

The school sits near neighborhoods with high crime rates and known gang activity. But students say those problems don’t carry onto campus.

They said their student body boasts many accomplishments, including award-winning band and drama programs, piloting conflict resolution programs and breaking records for charity drives.
