    "The faculty and administration at Keith School are hard working and dedicated to improving the lives of their students. Their middle school program successfully combines academic rigor with a continuing love of learning. Teachers and administrators are available not only during the school day but also nights and weekends when students or parents have questions or concerns. Students are offered the chance to take foreign languages, economics, art, theater and music classes along with the traditional core subjects. They all are encouraged to try new subjects and are strongly supported by teachers. Student leadership and independence are fostered and encouraged."

    "As a member of this school since 2002, I have worked for a number of Heads of School, many were great personalities and excellent advocates for our school. Unfortunately, they were unable or unwilling to make difficult decisions to help improve our school. Inheriting this, Dr. Dimke has made difficult choices to lead our school, as have many schools continuing to be affected by our regions 'Great Recession'. Change can be perceived as negative, but those at our school, who know and love it, know we are in the best shape (program and financially) we have been in for quite some time."

    "As you can read, I am a faculty member at Keith and have proudly taught here since 2008 after spending several years teaching in other local schools. As with any school that strives to be innovative, it is this faculty s perspective that our challenges offer us opportunities for innovation. There is confidence and love from all who have benefited from having a fully-accredited, independent, nonsectarian, college-preparatory school in our community. The passion for our programs come from current and alumni families who share resources and services generously, a faculty and staff that are encouraged and directed by effective leadership to innovate curriculum and instruction, and an overall program that truly values a renaissance-based education. We can only offer the advice of doing your own research and due diligence before drawing conclusions from anonymous sites like these. If you want statistics of true constituent surveys, performance evaluations, curriculum samples, or faculty profiles, contact the school at 815-399-8850, stop by for a visit to our beautiful and friendly campus or visit our website at www.keithschool.net.We would love to show you what we truly about, thank you!"

    "I'm a former Keith parent having just decided not to renew our contract for 2015-16. I think its interesting to read the reviews here because nearly everything from 2012 on is negative. 2009 to 2012 seems positive and prior to 2009, most reviews are positive with the exception of a mix in 2008. Having been a parent at the school for most of these periods (we started in second semester 2008 in cottage), I would say the reviews are definitely reflective of who the head of school has been during these times. Betty Geisen -- not so good. Alan Gibby -- very good. Debra Dimke -- clearly bad."

    "This school honestly sucks, don't send anyone to this school, they're broke and all they care about is volleyball. Faculty kids are treated like kings."
