Explore our staff directory to learn more about our exceptional faculty. The Keith faculty is recruited nationally, identifying professionals with advanced training, experiences and passion for student success. More than 65 percent of our entire faculty and 82 percent of Middle and Upper School teachers hold advanced degrees in their respective fields. They are accomplished educators with a commitment to serving as role models for young people. Our faculty uses a broad repertoire of teaching techniques and technologies, enhancing students’ skills by integrating these approaches throughout the curriculum. Dedicated to their own life-long learning and continued professional growth, they enthusiastically participate in ongoing development.

Perhaps most importantly, Keith faculty form relationships with their students and families, and encourage regular communication. Our teachers are available to students and parents before, during and after school. Celebration phone calls and emails, correspondence over weekends and direct access to a students’ daily progress through a web-based application are just a few of the many ways we maintain strong teacher-student-parent relationships.
