A delegation of sixty-five professionals from Beijing University’s National School of Development visited Key last week. Accompanied by four interpreters from the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy, the group from China was interested in learning about independent school education and considering ways academic institutions in China could follow a similar model. The group toured campus and met with Head of School Marcella Yedid, Director of Finance and Operations Ken Piel, Middle School Division Head Dave Magnus, Lower School Division Head Emily Legum, and three eighth grade students: Molly Glime, Matthew Jarriel and Maria Som. Happening upon class discussions held outside, classroom debates in Civics, and Key’s renowned Orff Schulwerk classes in session, the visitors were truly intrigued by all they saw while at Key.
