From Keys School

Welcome to Keys School! Our two-campus K through 8 program was founded in 1973 by Betsy Danon and Inge Zumwalt, two Palo Alto public school teachers, who envisioned an independent school that not only upholds high academic standards for students but also nurtures the “whole child.” Keys School is thriving in that vision and mission!

At Keys, we believe the best preparation for an ever-changing world is a strong foundation that gives your child the skills to overcome challenges and create opportunities. We honor our students for all they are today, and all they hope to become tomorrow.

Developing the Whole Child

academic spotlight

We appreciate each child’s strengths, needs, and interests – all that makes a child unique. Social and emotional learning is embedded in all that we do at Keys, and we know our students learn best in a supportive environment where they are seen, heard, and valued as whole people. Students know that teachers and classmates are listening and that their voices matter.
