MR. DON DELAIR
I have been in private school administration since 1988 and have served as the Founding Headmaster here at King’s Schools since 1994. King’s represents my God-given childhood dream of starting a Christian school that would… serve as a standard for EXCELLENCE…live out a belief that every child deserves the OPPORTUNITY for a quality education…bring a life-changing message of HOPE to the families we serve. Thanks be to God, I am passionately living out that dream every day.
MR. TRES PINKERTON
I'm thrilled to have joined the King's team as Assistant Principal. I trust God will use my past experiences as a Marriage & Family Therapist, Youth Pastor, School Counselor and President of King's Schools Board to advance our mission of providing a distinctively Christ-centered education. My wife, Brittney, started as a King's student in second grade…the year the school was founded in 1994. She went on to be a member of the first 8th grade graduating class in 2001. Fast forward, now we have our own two daughters enrolled at King's. I'm passionate about youth discipleship and education which makes this my dream job!

Started at King’s in 2016. It is a privilege to be part of such an amazing school.

MISS BREANNA DELAIR
MUSIC & PE TEACHER
Started at King’s in 2019. As a King’s Schools alumni, it is an honor to be back on campus, however this time around I am the teacher not the student. I attended Kings Schools from Kindergarten to 8th grade. During my high school career I played different sports, but focused mainly on volleyball. That passion led me to play in college, and was given the opportunity to volunteer as the volleyball coach here at King’s in 2011. During my time coaching, I realized my love for the children and how instrumental I had become guiding them in a sport and leading them spiritually through every day life challenges. It is a pleasure to be able to coach and teach your children each day, I look forward to serving the Lord and assisting in your child’s spiritual growth.
