Keithley Middle School, opened in 1961. Additional space was added in 1967 and we became a middle school in 1985. We are named for Perry G. Keithley, Jr. who served as a principal and superintendent in our district. The school was completely remodeled during the summer of 1999. Our building facility is used by the community, Franklin Pierce Schools, and parent groups for meetings and activities. Keithley's fields are also used by many sport teams including the Summit Parkland Youth Association and Pierce County Parks. Approximately two hundred dates a year are reserved for use of our facility by various groups for a variety of activities. Keithley Commons is the newest building on campus. The Commons serves as the central kitchen for all Franklin Pierce elementary schools as well as feeding Keithley students. The Commons’ performing arts stage, band room, and multipurpose computer lab are a showcase for the District.
Keithley’s Mission and Vision: The PGK Community is committed to individual excellence through collective action, communication, and celebration.
