Welcome to Keith Middle School!

We look forward to working with you to provide your child with a productive and successful middle school experience. This is a special time in a young personís life when great changes are occurring physically, cognitively, emotionally, and socially. Keith Middle School is committed to being a developmentally responsive learning community. Our utmost desire is to maintain high academic expectations, a positive school culture and climate, and a safe learning environment throughout the entire school year. We celebrate our diversity and work with our families and the community to provide the best educational experience for all our students.

Parent involvement is one of the keys to student success in school and we welcome your participation in our school community. A first step is to be involved in our Parent Teacher Organization that supports our ongoing efforts to provide for our students in every capacity. We also have an expanding parent volunteer program that provides assistance in the office, library, and other areas of our school.

Yours truly,

Peter J. Sykes, Principal
