Wesley "Wes" Shiflett graduated a few weeks ago from The Key School and is ready to ride off into the sunset, just like that iconic scene from many movies. Only, it won't be the end of Shiflett – or the movies he's created or the ones down the road that will someday bear his imprint.

KEYNotes from Matthew

My drive to campus each day takes me down Forest Drive past Annapolis Middle School. The sign out front reads "Happy Summer," and it is clearly quiet on their campus. Traveling to downtown Annapolis with my daughter to take her to work has us pass by two other local schools. Both of those campuses also feel incredibly quiet and static as you drive by.

While I have no doubt that there are activities going on at each of these schools, those campuses stand in stark contrast to the vibrancy of summer at Key. While our summer program—which many of your children partake in—creates a synergy on campus, looking deeper one will find faculty members engaging in curriculum planning and other professional growth and development activities throughout the summer. Division offices are hard at work building academic schedules for students. Division Heads are meeting with both new and current students and their parents to discuss the upcoming academic year.
