Founded in 1973, Keys School is a two-campus, grades K through 8 independent school in Palo Alto that not only upholds high academic standards for students but also nurtures the whole child. Because Keys School holds the developmental needs of students at its core, the school maintains an exceptional curricular program that celebrates the life of the mind. A visit to either campus will find: impassioned educators working to ensure that every student is seen, known, and valued in a supportive and dynamic learning environment; engaged, kind students who are critical thinkers, able-problem solvers, and nimble learners and leaders; and the preservation of the magic of childhood through an educational program that promotes wonder, inspiration, inquiry, and exploration.

Guided by its mission and respect for every child’s life experience, Keys School challenges students to develop a keen intellect and a generous spirit, to advocate for themselves and others, and to honor curiosity and reflection in an increasingly hurried world. Keys is seeking a director of admission and enrollment to develop and implement principles and practices that center equity, justice, and the social-emotional wellbeing of students. Funding exists to support participation in professional development and personal growth opportunities such as conferences, workshops, and professional associations.
