Kirby-Smith Middle School Reviews

3 reviews
It was a rather fulfilling experience. Along with the educational side of it, you gain even more friends when in an extracurricular activity. For me it was soccer and swimming. Those things and the teachers there were great. A lot of them really wanted to prepare you for highschool and see you succeed. Also, the end of the year rewards were nice to indulge into as well. My only issue then was having only 5 minutes to get to my next class. It was difficult because it's a big property; you could have a class in the main building and the next period have it on the other side of the school. Besides that I didn't have many complaints.

First above all I was homeschooled 6th through 7th grade. With that being said it was my first and last year at Kirby smith. I admit I was very anxious about going to middle school however everything turned out perfect. Not only did I make an abundance of friends but the staff truly and honestly cared about not just my safety but my well being and education as well. On the same note, the staff didn't care about us students because they had to but because they actually wanted too. I have never in all the years I have been in school felt so cared for by all the staff of the school. Kirby has been an A school for many years and there are a plethora of reasons why. Not only the staff but the recourses the school has is absolutely top notch. Long story short Kirby smith was an amazing school for me and hopefully more people will get to have the same experience I had there too.
Kirby Smith Middle School is a STEM magnet school in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. I received an excellent education there, and had some of the best teachers in the city. Several of my favorite teachers are no longer there because they either moved or retired. I was lucky to have such experienced teachers on my journey.
