Key School's greatest strengths are its students, its faculty, and its program.
Key students are curious, lively, articulate, and self-confident.
Key teachers are noted for their experience, their intellectual vitality, and their concern for students.
The program includes courses, materials, and experiences intended to instruct, stimulate, challenge, and engender a delight in learning while developing a sustaining degree of intellectual curiosity.
The School emphasizes the learning process, promotes individuality, and encourages the expression of ideas and points of view in both academic and non-academic areas.
The general tone of the campus is egalitarian, informal, academically focused, creative and caring.
The Key School is founded upon the conviction that children are innately curious about themselves and the world; they want to learn, they want to discover, and they want to create.
The School's role is to nourish and guide this natural exuberance, energy, and delight in the search for meaning, so that each student may develop into an informed, thoughtful and constructive member of society, with a lifelong commitment to learning.

The Key School provides an excellent education for my children. The Middle School has teachers who care and promote self-advocacy for the students. The school is a "community", where students feel safe, can express themselves, and become independent thinkers. I would highly recommend the school if you are looking for a place where your children will grow academically, culturally, and morally.
