Transferring in from another school where things were not what they should've been - the administration (teachers too though it wasn't all of their faults) couldn't handle the kids my daughter has found her "home". Her teachers as well as the staff are amazing taking the time to assure her and me that what she went though at her other school would not happen at this one. Nor have they. Her grades have improved -she's actually getting an education now! and her zest for life has returned She's befriended a diverse group of individuals who not only share her interests but have her back when she needs them most. Her father and I could not be happier. Only wish I'd moved her over sooner.
Our second year at Francis Scott Key and we could not be happier. My son is in the kindergarten program this year and its wonderful. With only 15 children in the class to one teacher and one assistant he is getting that one on one focus that we were looking for. The school has created many after school programs that are priceless; Spanish, violin, art, and music to name a few. My son loves the after school program. We are so happy to be a part of this community and the families we have met along they way are priceless. We are looking forward to the future program that the school has to offer.
Francis Scott Key Elementary develops honesty, integrity and fairness in its students in many ways but one way that this is implemented and can be measured is by using the PBIS standard; Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports. With this approach the children understand what is expected of them through out each day and if they need help they have the support. Creating an upfront expectation allows the children to be in control of their destiny.
