Message from Principal Mather

Message from principal

Our Principal

Principal Mather is entering his 3rd year as principal of Keith and his 27th year in public education. He spent 20 years as a biology instructor and 5 years as assistant principal at Keith Middle School. He believes that every young adult can succeed and that every student has something unique to bring to our educational experience. Achieving student goals is largely dependent on building relationships with staff and peers, a safe and supportive learning environment, and the alignment of family, student, and school. With this vision, Keith Middle School will achieve success on many levels.

Our Vision

Keith Middle School fosters a community of self-motivated learners by empowering all students to attain academic success while becoming 21st Century global citizens.

Our Belief

We believe that learning sustains the human spirit.
Therefore, we value the intellectual risk taking of students as they engage in thinking critically about academic challenges inside the classroom and 21st century applications outside of the classroom.
We value the persistence necessary for students to strengthen their core literacy skills across all content areas as they engage in problem solving and demonstrate their mastery of grade level content standards.
We value the passion and motivation that each student will develop through his or her journey to become empowered learners.

Our Instructional Focus

A coordinated, whole-school effort to have Keith Middle School students demonstrate the ability to think critically through analyzing text in each content area as evidenced by their growth on I-Ready assessments, development in written communication, and several other internal measures.
