ANNAPOLIS. MD. — A new report from a private school in Annapolis shows that allegations of sexual abuse at The Key School from the 1970s to the 1990s are true and nothing was done to stop it or prevent it.

The report gives very graphic details from victims about the abuse that went on at The Key School in Annapolis over a 20-year period, starting in the 1970s.

The Key School launched this investigation back in April after a Washington Post story came out about a woman who attended the school back in the 1970s or 1980s. She said that she was sexually abused by two teachers.

Other victims then came forward saying they too had been abused.

The Key School hired the law firm Kramon and Graham to investigate the allegations. In a 40-page report, the firm found 10 adults at the school did engage in some sort of sexual misconduct or inappropriate relationship with at least 16 students between the 1970s and 1990s.

Lawyers did not find any evidence of this happening with current staff and faculty at the school.

The school posted the report and a letter on its website apologizing the victims of the abuse.

The Key School has given the report to Anne Arundel County police.

School officials said they are also continuing to review their policies to prevent something like this from ever happening again.
