School History:

Key School began in 1966 as a summer enrichment program for dyslexic students. Under the leadership of Mary Ann Key, Dr. John Richardson, and Scottish Rite Children's Hospital, Key School was established and soon gained a reputation of excellence and innovation in the dyslexic community. Key School now serves students in grades K-12 and equips them with the resources and tools needed to succeed academically, emotionally, and socially. Key School is now part of the larger, Key Center for Learning Differences which provides impactful community-based programs that address the needs of students, parents, and educators.
