Getting to Know Us

The school first opened in August 2003 and currently has 1650 students that wear the school colors of yellow and blue with pride! Our school mascot is the Knight and you can feel our school spirit the moment you walk in the door. Our Keys Gate Charter School family represents diverse cultural backgrounds. You will be kindly greeted and will love the feel of your surroundings. Keys Gate prides itself on being a family. We have several after school sports and activities throughout the year and our PTO sponsors several family-fun events. Come by for a visit!
In its 10th year, the AR program is making great strides. The teachers work with their students to set AR goals. When the students meet their goals, we celebrate their success with a reward each quarter. The Reading Committee looks forward to a successful 2012-2013 school year!
STRIVE for Excellence
STRIVE is the character education program for Charter Schools USA. Throughout the year, teachers and students participate in service projects that demonstrate active citizenship in our community. Some projects include collecting Toys for Tots and creating care packages for our soldiers. Our teachers imbed the STRIVE 65 character traits into their daily lessons and select a STRIVE Student of the Month. The students receive recognition at our monthly STRIVE Student of the Month ceremony and participate in a quarterly celebration.
