Our Vision

Key MS is committed to ensuring that our students are prepared for the future they want to write and the world they want to see. In keeping with the legacy of John Lewis, our pyramid namesake, we are dedicated to social justice and equity by dismantling barriers, providing opportunities for all students, and preparing them for success in a global society. Our students will be inquiring, empathic, and knowledgeable young people who strive to create a better world.
