What's Here!


Martin Luther King Elementary

Located at 466 Rockland Street, Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School was formerly named Elnathon Elisha Higbee Elementary School. Dr. E. E. Higbee was state superintendent of public education from 1875 to 1881. The school was renamed to honor the gentle warrior of the Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968). Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. He advocated social action based on the philosophy of Christianity and the nonviolence practices of Gandhi. Dr. King's dream was that all men, women, boys and girls, would be treated equally and fairly. His dream lives on here at M. L. King Elementary School. It lives through the way the teachers, staff, parents and administrators work together to provide the students with the best educational experience possible.
