Ok teachers. Ms stranger was very mean and always ruined my day. Overall ok school
Kilgour is a great school with a very active and strong PTA that gets things done!
My son has just completed Kindergarten. We are very happy with Kilgour. My son's teacher was wonderful and attentive to his needs. In addition there are many opportunities for him to learn outside the classroom - even in Kindergarten! (sports, choir, etc... ) The parent group is very active - more than I recall as a child. It is nice to know your kids are part of a community.
Both of my children have been at Kilgour for years, my son since 2nd grade and now in 6th, and my little girl since Kindergarten. We have had the pleasure of knowing some exceptional teachers along the way. The best part, in my opinion, is the dedicated and hard working principal, Miss Cook. They just don't get any better than her.
We are very happy with Kilgour Elementary School. Compared to our previous school, the principal is very involved and the teachers have high expectations for the students. The atmosphere is supportive and the other families are friendly. Since it is a neighborhood school, it is a lot like what I remember school to be when I was a child - except better.
My child went to this school from Kindergarten through 6th grade. She was very well educated. Now she goes to Walnut Hills and I feel she was well-prepared by her teachers there. The social scene might be difficult for some children who don't live in Mt. Lookout or Hyde Park. But otherwise, if you want a good education and that is the most important thing to you, it's a good place to send them
I am a parent and know firsthand that I have had consistent problems with this particular school, ranging in issues involving its social environment and integrity of the faculty.
the kilgour school in hyde park is wonderful, the atmosphere is so warm and nurturing and the teachers are great. the feedback you get on your child's progress is impressive. lots of activities are being offered and the parent involvement is enormous. andrea, cincinnati
I have a 6 Year old In Kilgore, and am very Happy with this school, his Teacher Mrs. Braffman is excellent. I also like how they make me feel that I can come into class basically any time I want. I really enjoy it.
Kilgour is a gem! We have two children (1st and 2nd grade) at Kilgour. There is a fantastic staff of teachers and administrators, spectacluar parental involvement and a rigorous academic curriculum (most continue to Walnut Hills!)We had looked at all of the private schools in the area and we still decided on Kilgour. It is a fantastic neighborhood school that really supports a community of academic and personal achievement. We are so fortunate to be a part of this school!
This is the best school. They have a great teacher/parent involment. They are there to help your child. Your child is not just a number. Great School!
