Kirkwood Christian Schools is the school that I am writing about. All three of my daughters attended this school. They are all college graduates now. One has a law degree and another has a master's degree. Now I have two grandsons attending, and in the fall I will have a granddaughter there also. The teachers are very nurturing and caring, the curriculum was developed by Dr. Kirkwood and it is excellent, the program just keeps getting better all the time! There is a very active parent club that takes the elementary school on a field trip at the end of the year, has various activities for families, and buys computers and other equipment for the children. If a parent takes the time to tour the other schools in the area I am sure they will be very impressed!

My daughter has been attending Kirkwood Christian Schools for 7 years and loves this school. The staff treat her with kindness and it feels like our second home. It makes me feel very comfortable going to work knowing she is so well taking care of and she is learning at the same time. She is currently learning at least 2 grades above her grade level. My family is beyond pleased with Kirkwood.

My son is in the pre-school program and loves it! He started about a year ago. His teachers care about the kids and so far my son is thriving and adores all of the staff. As a parent mentioned before, yes they still use tapes but you are told when you go and visit what their curriculum is and what material they use. No surprises if you ask the right questions and observe the school and classrooms before you sign your child up. There is fundraiser going on to upgrade and get computers.

Staff has no consideration for children's needs nor parents. My child has gotten lice from the school twice from the school and no notice is not posted till several children are infected. Staff knew of prior lice problem but waited a week and half to notify parents after my child and several other were infested with lice. Tuition is not cheap to not notify parents ahead of time. One of the most expensive schools in the area and not worth the outdated practices and teachings. Kids are still being taught on old cassette tapes yes cassette tapes to the learn the lessons of Dr Kirkwood.

My son is at the preschool campus. He loves school, and loves his teachers. He has to stop by the office almost every night to say bye to the Director.

This is an excellent school. As a parent and teacher, I want the best education for my child. This is definitely it!! My two year old is excited about learning. She is counting, identifying her shapes, colors and so forth. Overall, this is an exceptional school and I recommend it to everyone!!!

This school has done an excellent job so far. The teachers and staff are not only professional but very friendly and make you feel part of the community. Because the school is so small, our kids are better attended to. The academics are exceptional and the swim program in the summer is an added bonus!

mixed feeling about this school, i must say administration primarily the prinicipal has issues and at times one can feel quite uncomfortable questioning if this school is the best for my child. depending what class and who the teacher is makes the difference.

This School does not resprect childrens rights. They do what they want when they feel like it. Parents who make comments and suggestions, or share their concerns on how wrong a student was treated or humiliated go on a 'black list'. I guess enrollment is so high at this school they don't care if you leave or you stay. The school administrators and owners have this attitude. Administrators have really bad communication, regard, and respect with parents, and don't care to change it. If you show them something obviously wrong, they are the type that will make excuses to save face and have the 'final word'. The school offers good educational foundation, but the work ethics of the adminstrators is really bad. I don't recomment to even try to put up with it.
