Congratulations to Key 5th graders Alexa Cruz, Isabella Moran and Alana Stewart on being named Maryland state finalists for the 2017 Letters About Literature contest!
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.
From the outset, Key School worked to forge an identity that coupled experiential and innovative learning with a rigorous and essentially classical curriculum.
