Third Grade STEM Teacher

Keystone School has been a haven for bright, motivated students since 1948. A Keystone student is taught to ask questions, to pursue knowledge, and to love learning. We believe that when given the opportunity, encouragement, and means to think more deeply and comprehensively, young people will respond with the enthusiasm and energy to go beyond the demands of a standard curriculum. Within the context of a balanced and supportive environment, our challenging and thoughtful college-preparatory program, enriched with many opportunities for physical, social, creative, and ethical growth, challenges students to develop diligence, inquisitiveness, independence, self-discipline, and responsibility.
