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 Mary Ann Key, 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.
