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.


Fine and Performing Arts Center

Inspired to look beyond Key’s 50th Anniversary, the vision for the future includes a long-awaited Fine and Performing Arts Center. Since its inception, Key School has recognized the value of arts education and believes that the development of each student is dependent on intellectual endeavors in the visual and performing arts. Indisputably, the arts flourish at Key as witnessed annually by the entire community at Key Theater productions, Orff Schulwerk performances, and musical evenings that feature the Chorus, Key Dancers, and instrumental ensembles. Initial funding will be used for architectural fees and site drawings for the building. It is exciting to imagine a space wholly dedicated to this signature program of The Key School.
