Words from Our Community
"I like that anybody can join (the school), no matter what type of grades you have."
"Many of my students when they join me in the fall are several years behind grade level. In as little as 5 months, many of my students have grown as much as 2 years. I'm extremely proud of their success, and even more so, it's wonderful to see their confidence in English blossom."
"The fact that they actually put college on their minds, makes me feel good for her future. Simply because at an early age they're instilling in them that it's important to go to college."
Founded in 2016, Kirby Middle School has served its local community by providing student-centered learning environment focused on preparing its youth for college, leadership and life.
