Greek and Latin Roots are one of the Pillars of Key. Ninety percent of English words with more than one syllable are Latin based. Therefore, a heavy emphasis of instruction at Key School is focused on the Greek and Latin roots of the English language, providing students the power to unlock meanings and histories of words, grasping the logic of the English language. Each student has a Roots box with all the roots words we learn each year.
