The teachers and support staff are very strong and committed to the kids. There are initiatives in place to differentiate the curriculum, connect each child to the school and offer a wide range of after school activities to connect the kids to the school. The guidance counselors,, library media specialist and fine arts teachers are especially good. There are also a number of extraordinary teachers in other areas.
The teachers are exceptional here. My son attended for three years and had a great experience. The principal is the best I've ever seen. The staff truly care about the kids, and want them to love school and it is working.
I was one of the first black students at North Kirkwood Middle School, i think my educational experience was exceptionally great compared to other school districts, in all areas. Even now, Kirkwood Schools compared to others, are probably rnked among the best in the nation.
