About Key School
Key School has served Tarrant County since 1966 as one of the pioneer schools in the state for children with learning differences. The school’s beginnings with Dr. John Richardson and Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital established a reputation of excellence and innovation in the community while connecting with many local schools. As a result, many students with learning differences have been referred to the Key Summer Program. Now Key School provides services to many of the special needs and pediatric medical communities in Dallas/Fort Worth through effectively addressing learning difficulties.
The supporting educational environment at Key School caters to the unique identity of each student and focuses on them as an individual rather than just their learning differences.
Key School equips students with all resources and tools they will need to succeed academically, emotionally, and socially. Educators, therapists, and administrators for all ages and grade levels work to build self-esteem and teach skills to live a life of success. The highly qualified staff of Key School have completed advanced training and received certifications to provide the highest level of support. With a small student to teacher ratio , every student can receive the individualized attention, support, and mentorship that is one of the school’s greatest strengths.
Coming soon, the Early Childhood Program will offer classes for 3-4 year old children, which will focus on kindergarten readiness and lay the foundation for future academic success. The vision for these early childhood classes will prepare young children for their academic career, promote healthy social and primary learning skills, and early reading intervention with an Academic Language Therapist. Key School will be able to provide its comprehensive early education curriculum and an improved likelihood of academic success to students in Forth Worth and surrounding areas.
