Kirkwood is an amazing school district that offers so much to its students. Along with many faculty members with master degrees, there are also plenty of advance classes and lots of help for those who need it. I was able to go abroad twice at Kirkwood and it was absolutely wonderful. Truly a top notch education! However, the school is not as diverse as it could be.

great place to start school! The atmosphere is friendly and everyone there is always ready to help. Kirkwood has many ways to help students. As a nursing student I have received help from many departments such as the counselors office, the dean of students office, learning center, tutoring services, the cafe, financial aid office.
Kirkwood is a nice district that prepares you well for college. They start preparing you for college at a young age though, starting in seventh/eighth grade. The school on the surface is a suburban upper middle class that tries to create a sense of diversity. Academically it prepares you for your future, but not necessarily socially or culturally. They advocate for proper mental health awareness, but lack the resources to actually help students. Overall I gave the district a 4/5 for how far it has come since it first opened, but there are many other things to improve on.
