The King Science Center was created in 1985 by the Omaha School Board which serves 43,000 students. The center was originally a magnet for grades four, five, and six. Formerly the building was a junior high school or a ninth grade center from 1959 to 1988. The facility was reorganized into a science middle school magnet by first removing the ninth grade and then transferring grades four, five, and six from the former King Science Center facility and adding grades seven and eight.
