Key School is named after Francis Scott Key (1790-1843), author of our national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner.” KeySchool or Escuela Key was one of the pioneers in two-way immersion programs. The immersion program was established at KeySchool in 1986 with a first grade class, and one grade was added each year as the initial cohort advanced. Kindergarten was added in 1991.
