The Whole Child Approach

December 30, 2018

We are dedicated to creating a school environment that focuses on the “Whole Child.” Students are much more than just academic achievers; they are individuals who need to feel safe, encouraged, and supported.

Please read an important message from the School Nurse Mrs. Corrani concerning when to keep your child home from school when he/she is ill.

Issued yearly by the Ohio Department of Education, a school’s report card grade is based on a district’s score on six measures of performance: Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, K-3 Literacy, Graduation Rate, and Prepared for Success. This year, one of the numerous areas in which Keystone Schools excelled was on the Achievement Indicator (1) as we outscored the state average on all but one of the 21 tests.
