King Farm Subdivision is split into 2 High Schools. The dividing line is Redland Boulevard. The Watkins Pond section are zoned for Richard Montgomery High School, while the rest are zoned for Gaithersburg High. Call or email me for the reports for both schools. I would provide the URL, but Trulia won't allow it here.
As you know school zones can be changed each given year, so if there is a property you are interested in, double check the school (again, email me, and I'll provide the URL for you).
Only a parent can really evaluate schools to be 'good' or 'bad' based on their own child's experience. For really bright, advanced kids, the county offers an application-based magnet program starting in 4th grade. If a child has learning challenges, they offer an array of special services in the home schools, and special centers in other schools. There are lots of 'signature' programs in each school.
There are clearly differences in schools across Montgomery County, but is there a "bad" school? Some would say no.
MCPS publishes a ton of stats for the entire school systems so you can objectively evaluate your options. You can access stats, maps etc for these two clusters here:

Hope that helps. Good luck with your home search.
