    "Being part of this school has been an amazing experience. When you have such a great community and so many parents involved you know you are going to a great school that your student will excel in! The teachers are all amazing and really take the time to learn about the students and teach them according to their learning style."

    "FSK is an amazing jewel! My son has had such wonderful warm, dedicated, creative, organized, and inspiring teachers at Key. This year, the PTA has brought a year-long art curriculum called, Art in Action, into the classroom (K-5.) This means that all of our students will be studying 12 different artists each year and will be introduced to new art mediums such as charcoal and watercolors while learning how to create their own ancient cave paintings and works of art based off of Picasso, Van Gough, and the many other great masters. Overall, FSK has a strong sense of community that feels very inclusive."

    "I am a parent of 2nd & 4th graders at FSK. After going on 14 school tours, FSK was my favorite. I was impressed with the principal, teachers and parents back then and continued to be amazed at their dedication to the students. I appreciate the principal, who is takes time to listen to parents' concerns and encourages parents make teacher requests for the next year. The teachers are wonderful! They differentiate their lessons so my boys are challenged and enjoy their classes. Also, they have worked to include technology in the classroom with electronic touch whiteboards and a shared set of classroom laptops. There is a large special needs population, which develops empathy in all students. The school also has very extensive after school offerings - Beacon (free for 2nd-5th), CDC (sliding scale) & CYC (fee-based). A huge plus is the tuition-based Mandarin program that runs 4 days a week onsite. There is also guitar lessons taught by parent & teacher volunteers. One of my main reservations of this school was the early start time, but have found it to be beneficial to start the day early and get out early. Overall, we are extremely happy that we are here."

    "I had a good feeling about Francis Scott Key from my first visit, and it turned out to be right on. The school, from the top down, sets high standards for leadership, education, citizenship, family and friendship. The principal, Mr Wong, is a strong leader, and the kids like and respect him. The teachers are excellent. The school is warm and inclusive. While volunteering at lunch recently I saw an older student stop her friend in the lunch room so she could sing her a song. She had hurt her friend's feelings and the song was her way to apologize. It was a humble act of kindness that tells me Key is teaching our kids well."
