Kirksville R-III School District Reviews

I like how Kirksville Schools are open for all people and accepting. The district listens to students and even had the school board, the principle, the superintendent, and others come and listen to the public speaking class about things that many students would like to see change. I would like air conditioning in the Gym and a bigger parking lot, but other than that I like Kirksville High School and the district!

It's my senior year at Kirksville Senior High and I'm happy that I was given the chance of experiencing different opportunities that other schools might not have given, but KHS did. I was given the choice of taking dual credit classes which I took full advantage of and most of the teachers know how to prepare us for college and future issues that may come along.
Kirksville High School provides an excellent education considering the limited resources available in this economically diverse community. The students and school benefit from the string of teachers that are graduates of the highly ranked Truman State University, local to Kirksville. Many of my fellow graduates have gone on to become leading members of society around the United States and even globally as college professors, doctors, lawyers, and key executives. With that said, an excellent education and post secondary readiness awaits anyone ready to work hard.
