The Key School has officially earned Maryland Green School Certification by the Maryland Association of Environmental & Outdoor Education. This designation comes after a lengthy application process that required an in-depth review of the School's programs and philosophy as well as substantiation of a sustained dedication to environmental initiatives.
What makes Key unique for our students is our belief that every child plays an active role in the learning process.
Our mission is to nourish and guide the natural exuberance, energy, and delight in the search for meaning, so that each student embraces lifelong learning and develops into an informed, thoughtful, and constructive member of society.
Key is the oldest pre-school through grade twelve nonsectarian independent school in Anne Arundel County with an average class size of 16 and a student teacher ratio of 7:1.
The School's objective is not simply to teach children to be good students; it also bears the responsibility to encourage them to be good citizens and, over time, to internalize the core values of respect, responsibility, and honesty.
The Key School is committed to the principle that learning is maximized when students of differing abilities and backgrounds work together and develop an understanding of one another.
