As a senior at kirkwood I’ve experienced nothing but kindness from all my teachers since kindergarten! Kirkwood has an excellent curriculum set in stone for each student and they spend so much time making sure all student get exactly what they need from the time they step foot in school till they leave ! Not only is it just the teacher but also coaches and administrators, they help students like myself feel great at school and make it a welcoming place .

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.
Kirkwood h.s. is a culmination of all the things you hope high school is. There is a place for everyone- incredible teachers, clubs, activities, arts. A sxhool culture that promotes academics, connectedness, community, friends, and celebrating this time of life . Whether you are involved in the Gap year program in German, journalism, band, theatre, sports or one of the many clubs, this school is structured so that kids can find their "tribe". I contin ue to be impressed, having a graduate
who was well prepared for college, and a child still in high school, who continues to . Phenomenal school from the top down in my opinion.
