  • Open House Sept. 5  

    Join us for Open House to see why Key West High School is a great place for learning! We are committed to excellence and are celebrating our A grade! Creating a connection between home and school makes a difference. Come out Thursday, Sept. 5, for an opportunity to see how your child spends his/her day. The evening will begin at 5:30 with an opportunity to pick up a schedule and gather information under the dome in the courtyard. We will have Focus grade book sessions in the library. Learn how to make Focus work for you by notifying you about grades and attendance. We’ll have booths with info about the cafeteria (you can register for free/reduced lunch), the nurse and AHEC clinic, athletics, activities and more. At 5:45, the bell will ring and you will begin a rotation through your child’s schedule of the seven period day, spending eight minutes in each class. During that time, teachers will share expectations, curriculum standards, grading rubrics, methods of communication and other important information. TOGETHER, we will help your child be successful and the best he/she can be! The rotations will end at 7:05 p.m. Our Bonfire Pep Rally will follow at 7:15 p.m. in the Backyard. The band, Conchettes, cheerleaders and our fall sports teams will show their Conch Pride with the bonfire as the background. Please make plans to spend Thursday, Sept. 5, at Key West High and learn more about why we are the best place for kids to learn!

  • KWHS Text Tips

    Safety is first at KWHS and we have taken several steps to ensure our campus is safe. Our SRO, Officer Del Cid, is on campus from start to finish of each school day with additional officers on campus during lunch. The extra police are there to build relationships, mentor the students and help to maintain a safe environment. Staff are throughout the campus at supervision stations during the day and we ask all visitors to check in at the office for clearance. The gates on campus are locked at 7:45 and reopened before school is out with the front gate the main entrance point. Students have been through an Active Threat presentation to help them make decisions should they ever face such a situation at school or anywhere. This presentation is available for viewing by parents on our website. We have practiced fire drills and lock down drills as well as spent a day dedicated to character education lessons, all in an effort to promote a healthy, positive, safe environment for our students to be their best. Our See Something, Say Something campaign urges students to tell an adult on campus if they hear, see or suspect something that is suspicious, doesn’t seem right or if they are concerned about a person’s well-being. The Text Tip number for anonymous reporting is 305-432-3311.
