message from the head

Welcome to Keystone Prep High School… on behalf of our entire school community!

Keystone Prep High School is an extraordinary place, dedicated to serving young adults as they grow and mature in their high school experience. Our students are extremely intelligent but seek a school that allows them to be uniquely who they are every day. We applaud individuality and personality, while supporting the students as they explore their passions. We work with young people whose educational abilities range from average intelligence to the extremely giftedOur students come to us from all over the greater Tampa Bay area, some driving as far as Apollo Beach to attend this terrific school. I am blessed to be Head of School.

Keystone Prep is a traditional college prep high school that delivers an individualized approach. We are intentionally “student” focused as a school. What does that mean? Many parents have told us their child was not excelling at capacity or reaching their best performance, before coming to our school. They expressed their student was intelligent but seemed to miss delivering their best work at times, even leading to a desire not to attend school. At Keystone, our mission is to change that direction. By partnering with our parents, and employing only dedicated and excited staff, we find the right blend of what works best for each student. We deliver this using an Individualized Success Plan for each student. Students at Keystone Prep get excited about learning and what they can achieve, while they discover who they can become. This process takes time but from where they start to where they finish, incredible changes occur. It is a rewarding experience for both students and faculty, as they move towards shared goals together. The staff at Keystone Prep go above and beyond to support your child and your family. Come and see!

No student is overshadowed here or left in the background. Some schools may miss students who are very bright but shy. Sometimes in students this leads to feelings of anxiety, depression, loneliness, and even school failure at times. At Keystone Prep High School, students do not fall through the cracks. We maintain an average teacher-student classroom ratio of one teacher to eight students. This ensures teachers have twice the time to work with our students, as they do in classes of one teacher to twenty or more students. What do you think the result will be – better grades, of course. The KPHS faculty are specifically chosen from top-quality educators with additional skills in the emotional and social areas, thus ensuring learning is more fun for students. They possess master’s degrees and above or hold professional working experience in their craft, sometimes in multiple fields. They understand how to work with creative and unique learner, who need to be reached in non-traditional ways for their optimum success. The staff embodies and models compassion, empathy, kindness, and patience. They are selected for their ability to find the best in every student. Many students stay in touch with our staff long after graduation, which demonstrates the teacher – student bonds built with the professionals while at Keystone Prep High School.

We encourage our students to celebrate their individuality. We do not expect them nor want them to be cookie-cutter students who act and think alike. Each one is unique. We have a diverse and rich student body led by a team of educators who love their professional learning mission. We look forward to partnering with you to help your child become all that he or she can be. Keystone Prep truly is an extraordinary place!

Join us at Keystone Prep to experience a real school, with real standards, for unreal results!
