Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School is nestled in a northeast Omaha neighborhood located near 38th and Maple. The school was built in 1973 and named after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. making it the first OPS school to be named after a prominent African-American.
Before King Elementary became the school we know today, it spent much of its life fulfilling many other roles in the neighborhood. First, it was a Junior High, then it became a Ninth Grade Center. Several years later, it became a Science Magnet Center. In 1988, Clifton Hill Elementary, located 8 blocks to the west of King, closed and the students and staff moved to King. As a result, King turned into a Primary Center, servicing students from Pre-Kindergarten to Third Grade up until May of 1999. When OPS returned to neighborhood schools during the 1999-2000 school year, King Primary Center became King Elementary and is now the used by the local Pre-Kindergarten through Sixth Grade students.
King Elementary is well known throughout the community for providing a good, sound education for all of our students. We emphasize the fact that we are an academy school. Many of our former students are now achieving honor status and community accomplishments in their various other schools.
Our recognition at King Elementary comes on a daily basis provided by our satisfied clientele. Our school is working toward providing a multitude of special events involving our families, such as make-and-take workshops, drug fairs, family suppers, etc. Our goal is to help parents get involved in their children's education.
