Discover how an equal focus on essential skills, cross-disciplinary integration of identity, and authentic Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) allows for powerful academic experiences. Hear from our division heads and curriculum coordinators about how these experiences empower students to engage across social difference with the confidence to make meaningful connections. We are proud to share our approach to academics, DEIJ and SEL with you, as we explore examples from our curriculum, and how our K-8 experience prepares our graduates for the world beyond Keys.
