A Message from Our Principal

Dear Kings Ridge Preparatory Family and Friends,

It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself, Marcus Piña, as the principal at Kings Ridge. I have a passion for education and supporting the success of all students. I seek to ensure the success of each student and the school by providing the best instructional and extracurricular opportunities and supports possible. Similarly, it is my number one priority at Kings Ridge to ensure that every student receives the most well-rounded education possible. A well-rounded education means outstanding instruction from top-notch teachers as well as extracurricular opportunities and supports that enable students to develop character, cultivate passions, and explore the world outside of the classroom.

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.” - Martin Luther King, Jr.
