Kirby Hall School Reviews

Kirby Hall is such a hidden gem! Small class sizes, emotional intelligence, approachable teachers with solid pedigrees, and a strong focus on academics checked almost all of the boxes we look for in a school.

Our eldest kiddo is exceptionally bright and the reason we started looking at private schools in the Austin area. He participated in the GT program at our EISD elementary school but was still bored and under peer pressure to join the ranks of kiddos being groomed for their sports heavy High School.

Our eldest is now currently finishing his 2nd year at Kirby in the 4th grade class and our youngest son is finishing up his Primer year. We could not be happier with level of education and care shown our children. Our kiddos' teachers are interactive, communicative, and on point. The administration is responsive and open to feedback.

We are so grateful to have found this amazing school where children are taught emotional intelligence, manners, and that being smart is cool.

Many people call this place "The Hogwarts of Austin" and it's 100% accurate. Kirby Hall is housed in a beautiful 1920's brick building and reminds me of old private schools found in the northeast. It is charming and quaint. The halls are filled with bright, curious children and highly qualified teachers that are confident and relaxed. Everyone treats each other with respect and kindness (adults and children alike). The Head of School is extremely passionate and involved but she doesn't micromanage and gives her teachers the freedom to teach what they love. Kirby Hall is academically challenging and perfect for children that love to learn. After a few disappointing experiences at public schools and another prominent private school in Austin, we're so grateful to have found Kirby Hall. We love the small class sizes and personalized experience. Our son (5) and daughter (12) both love it.
Background: We have experienced public and private schools at the elementary and middle school levels. We have 2 kids in 6th and Primer.

Kirby Hall School provides individualized academic experiences due to its small class size coupled with incredible teaching staff. The teachers have the chance to get to know your kid - what they are good at and where they need help. They are committed to continuously challenging your kid to fulfill their potential.

The overall environment is welcoming and inclusive. Unlike many of our previous schools, we felt at home almost immediately. And the staff know every child and every child knows they have someone to go to when things aren't going well. The head of school loves these kids like they are her own. And she loves the school as well. And it comes thru in everything they do.

KHS is unique in Austin. There are plenty of other good schools - but none of them offers the same level of education and experience offered by Kirby Hall School.
