What Sets Us Apart

Pillars of Key School

Greek & Latin Roots

Gives students the power to unlock meanings and histories and grasp the logic of our English language. 90% of English words with more than one syllable are Latin based

Classic Literature

This study of literature that has withstood the test of time and promotes a deeper understanding of why we are who we are today.

Word of the Week

The WOW pillar ensures that Key students are exposed to, and work with, words that are rich in meaning and that enhance their vocabularies, and in turn, comprehension.

Student Organizer System

The Key Student Organizer serves to help students, beginning with our
youngest scholars, better plan and manage their time and learning. With teacher guidance, the Student Organizer helps students improve these fundamental skills.

Low Student to Teacher Ratio

When these ratios are low, teachers have more time to spend with each student checking progress and providing more instruction. Key School is proud of our low ratios and the caliber of teachers engaging students in learning.

Individual Student Instruction

Every student receives the individualized attention, support, and mentorship needed. Instruction is tailored to meet the needs of each student.

Academic Language Therapy

Key School uses a multi-sensory, structured approach to reading that uses auditory, visual, and kinesthetic modalities and is based on the Orton-Gillingham method. Students are instructed in small group settings or one-to-one with a Certified Academic Language Therapist.

The supporting educational environment at Key School caters to the unique identity of each student and focuses on them as an individual rather than just their learning differences.
