Keystone Oaks Middle School is a three-year comprehensive school for grades six, seven and eight located in suburban Mt. Lebanon, PA, approximately five miles from downtown Pittsburgh. The school first opened its doors in 1995. The school adjoins the district's high school building which allows the schools to share staff and helps ease our students' transition from middle to high school.
Curriculum & Facilities:
Keystone Oaks Middle School recognizes the unique qualities and challenges inherent with making the evolution from childhood to adolescence and then to young adulthood from a physical, intellectual, emotional and social perspective. That's why the primary focus of the middle school remains to help ease the students' transition from elementary to middle school and to help prepare them for high school. KOMS offers a challenging and varied curriculum designed to meet the often wildly fluctuating needs of students of all ability and development levels.
In addition to the core curriculum, middle school students are introduced to the concept of electives whereby they can focus on areas of particular interest to them. For example, students who are interested in the performing arts can join the chorus and/or the performance band. Similarly, 8th grade students who may be interested in studying a foreign language can study French or Spanish. Also, more advanced students will have the opportunity to take accelerated courses in Language Arts/English, Math, Science and U.S. History.
Special Academic Programs:
Keystone Oaks Middle School offers a variety of programs to meet the wide-ranging needs of our students. In addition to the standard curriculum KOMS offers learning, emotional, speech & language support. The school also offers gifted and English as a second language classes as well as a Student Assistance Program (SAP). Further, the school has a mental health therapist available through the Student Assistance Program.
