A Student-focused Curriculum
At KPHS, we pride ourselves on our unique style of education. We offer core curriculum classes along with multiple electives that are personally meaningful for our student body. We prepare students for college, while also preparing them for life. Our personalized approach also includes an Advocacy Program which fosters additional emotional and social skills needed to succeed. These include goal setting, executive functioning, organizational, and self-advocacy skills. With the help of their faculty advocate, students create an Individualized Career Plan to set and track personal and post-graduation goals.
Keystone faculty are experienced educators trained in the best educational practices and familiar with different styles of learning. More than half have advanced degrees or ESE certification. They work collaboratively across classrooms to create an organic support system that fosters the academic, social, and emotional growth of each student.
In accordance with the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) standards, students must obtain a minimum of four (4) credits of English, four (4) credits of Math, three (3) credits of Science, three (3) credits of Social Studies, one (1) credit of HOPE, one (1) credit of Fine Arts, and eight (8) credits of Electives within their four years of high school.
** Honors credit is available. KPHS is proud to offer a robust honors program where students are able to take and receive credit for completion of honors courses.
Various FLVS (Florida Virtual School) Courses are also available based on student interest. The State of Florida requires every student to take one online course before graduation to better prepare them for college. Keystone Prep partners with FLVS to offer our students with a wide variety of courses to choose from. Link to FLVS
Note: Students that complete our four-year academic program will not only meet but exceed Florida standards of graduation. Course offerings are dependent upon student interest and availability.
KPHS provides specific accommodations based on a student’s unique needs. Our staff uses IEPs, 504s and psycho-educational evaluations to determine how those accommodations should be administered and applied in the classroom setting.
