Principal King Welcomes Families Back to School

Dear Detroit Lions Academy families, Principal King

As the Principal of the new Detroit Lions Academy campus, it is my honor to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year. I hope you all had a relaxing summer break. Now it is time to look forward to a wonderful school year at our new campus, where a second chance leads to greater comebacks.  

I am extremely proud to serve as the principal at this new campus. This relocation will allow us to expand our programs so that we are able to offer a second opportunity to be successful in a supportive academic and social environment.

As your new principal, I have a vision of creating and sustaining a building in which all students will become leaders and lifelong learners so that they can reach their greatest potential.

Additionally, my goals and core values for Detroit Lions Academy include:

  1. All students will have access to an equitable, rigorous, and high-quality education.
  2. Students, teachers, families, and community members are all essential members in the educational process.
  3. Data-driven instruction is the key to solving inequalities in student achievement and shapes the path to ensuring an equitable education for all students.
  4. Relationship building with all stakeholders provides the foundation of trust to move forward and solve problems.

I encourage all parents to become active and partner with our school so that students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contribution. To stay abreast of all that is taking place at Detroit Lions, please be sure to provide us with an updated phone number and email address to receive information via our messaging system. Parents should also create a PowerSchool account to stay on top of their students' attendance and academics.

Lastly, remember to visit our website and social media platforms regularly for current news and upcoming events.
