I feel as though Keystone is clearly the best school in San Antonio if your focus is academics and getting the best experience possible for your child. Just take a look at almost any academic measure and you'll find Keystone at the top of that list in South Texas, Texas, and even the entire United States. I have watched my son flourish in this environment in ways that cannot be quantified. It truly feels like a big, nurturing family. The teachers, parents, administrators, staff, and students all seem to care and are motivated to achieve the best possible outcomes. When you put those things together, you get a culture that is frankly unrivaled in the region. The best academic decision I ever made for my son was sending him to Keystone. Their academic awards are outstanding and one walk through the halls seeing all the INTERNATIONAL science awards says all most parents need to know. They offer quality arts and sports programs as well. If you want your child to get a scholarship to play football, this may not be the best fit but... if you want your child to receive a full scholarship because of their research on quantum computing (Which actually happened this year!), then you can do no better.

Wow! Every year the students at Keystone do the most amazing things - stuff that only happens once in a decade at other schools happens many times each year at Keystone: World Championships in WorldQuest; Science Fair grand prizes; Gold Key and Pegasus Poetry publications; the highest percentage of national merit recognized students in San Antonio (and maybe even all of Texas); the list goes on and on. These things reflect just how much the students are learning and accomplishing every day, and the teachers and culture at the School are just awesome!

Keystone is such an amazing place! My son has been here for 2 years and has grown tremendously since enrolling at Keystone. The classes are small, the teachers are supportive and nurturing, and the curriculum is challenging and engaging for the students. A fantastic combination for a great school community. We are so happy with our Keystone experience!

This school is the most amazing school in Texas, and one of the best in the entire United States. Look into the statistics on student performance and you will be amazed: average SAT around 2100, average student score of 4.5 on an average of 8 AP tests, 50% or more National Merit commendations per year. These numbers are crazily impressive. Also, the school is close to 60% non Anglo.The school has a reputation for being a math science school. It is great in these subjects, but also in every other subject, including visual and performing arts and foreign languages. You have to visit to understand all that happens there, and to experience the culture that embraces learning more than anything else.
