1993 marked the beginning of what we humbly refer to as a “dream school.” King’s was started because of the commitment of three individuals who knew that quality Christian education was desperately needed in the Palm Springs area. Bill Schlesinger was the trustee of the Anderson Children’s Foundation which provided the needed funding to open the school at a quality level. Don DeLair and his wife, Shery, had a history in private and Christian school administration and developed a passion for bringing that same quality to the children of the Coachella Valley. They shared the calling and vision to impact young children’s lives with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ in an educational setting.
As committed Christians, all three of them dedicated their lives to the birthing of King’s Schools and the doors opened in 1994 with 55 students in Kindergarten through 6th Grade.
