My daughter didn't want to go to this school because all her friends were going to another school (boundary issues). Sending her here was by far the best choice ever. She loves this school.

I was very apprehensive about sending my child to Key, then subsequently Lee.

This is our first year at Key Middle School. Our daughter loves the school and the teachers. Principals are very hands on and very much in contact with the students which I believe is a plus. Couldn't be happier with Key Middle School.

This was our first year at Key and it has been a great school so far. While it is a large school, the individual pods for the grades key the small and personal feel very real. They also recognized excellence in my son and are providing him with honors courses next year. So glad we have Key!

Key Middle School teachers relate well to their students. The school atmosphere is very friendly. My son chose to attend Key Middle School rather than participate in the gifted and talented program because he preferred to go to school with his friends. Thanks to great teachers, a positive school ...  Read more

Key's honors program is wonderful. My daughter had lost interest in math. Her teachers renewed her enthusiasm. The kids work hard but aren't overloaded with work.
