Parents as Partners

Key School relies heavily upon its partnership with parents in sustaining both the effectiveness of its educational programs and the health of the School community. Such partnerships involve trust, mutual respect and common understanding. As a community that is responsive to individual needs and dedicated to providing an optimal learning environment for each of its students, positive communication between home and school is essential. Key parents support their children and the School, knowing that the spirit of cooperation is a vital resource in the School’s fulfillment of its Mission.

Key benefits enormously from the support and cooperation of parents. While occasional misunderstandings may be inevitable, communication that works toward an acceptable resolution with the students’ best interest at heart is the common goal. Because stewardship of an independent school requires such support, Key School reserves the right to terminate, at the discretion of the Head of School, the enrollment of any student whose parents are unwilling to cooperate with the School and thus honor the long-established values of the community.
