#KEYLife

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.

A student leader in the school's Upper School, Jayda is active with several student groups and has competed in pageant contests since she was 5 years old. She organized the Students for Social Change's annual Diversity Day, held Feb 3. Jayda arranged two seminars for her schoolmates. One incorporated interactive activities designed to encourage the students' awareness of their own privileges, and a second session included a discussion based on what happened during the interactive sessions and how the students could be more inclusive.
