Key School

At Key School, students are valued individuals with unique social, emotional, and intellectual needs.
Here, our students` journeys begin with a detailed assessment to determine their specific needs as well as their current academic standing.
Their results are then thoroughly examined and explained so parents and faculty clearly understand the goals and expectations for their students.
Key School`s integrated curricula, which fulfill the requirements for academic credit, are modified, augmented, and enriched to accommodate each student`s unique learning styles.
This approach is paired with individualized schedules meticulously designed to build upon the specific strengths, weaknesses, and academic goals of each student.
We have created a school culture that surrounds students in a positive environment and is grounded in support.
We believe children deserve encouragement from trusted mentors to guide them in making good decisions.
Our dedicated staff directs all efforts toward the continuous improvement of all our students.
Key School is devoted to helping children find their key to success.
