I think most kingsnakes are very docile snakes if handled properly from when they are young. The only tempermental king I've seen as an adult is a California owned by a fellow member of my local reptile society. She tells me some Californias can be that way - I don't know, having not had experience with them. I have a Mexican Black, a Graybanded and an Eastern. All three go to schools with me to educate kids about reptiles, and are handled by my ten-year-old at home with no problems what-so-ever. I believe that for what you stated, a kingsnake should be an excellent classroom snake. Even if he's a bit frightened by the routine at first, they tend to be very adaptable and he should settle in fine.
If you could find out what kind of kingsnake it is, perhaps folks here could give you some more specifics about care and handling and such.
In any event, let us know what you decide! :)
