Kirby Middle School has been re-zoned as part of the Achievement School District and as of the 2016-2017 school year, is now run by Green Dot Charter Schools. It has an excellent, involved staff, invested leadership, and a focus on student success. It offers a supportive environment with a focus on setting high expectations of the students. There are great things to come from the new Kirby.
I worked for this school as a Teacher. This must be the worst school in Memphis. The students are unruly, loud, disrespectful and uninterested in work. The principal, let's just say that.
she wears blue lipstick; that should tell you everything.
I am unsatisfied with this HORRIBLE SCHOOL! The teachers do not care about the students at all. They're just there to get their paycheck! They don't listen to the kids when they complain either. I don't like the way teachers handle situations either! That school is also unsafe too!
This school isn't so bad. If you do what you are supposed to do, you will be fine. I went there from 6th to 8th grade and I am now a junior at Overton High School. Sure, there were problems, but what school doesn't have problems?
Kirby Middle isn't one of the top schools in the city, but you can still benefit from it like any other school.I am a fellow student who don't make good grade. I still learn. Kirby has one of the smartest teaching staffs in the city.
Kirby Middle is not a good school for any parent to send their child to. My son has attended there and has had numerous problems encountered. He has not learned anything for this whole school year due to lack of leadership.
I have also attended this school. I have been on Kirby Meddle from 6th grade to 8th grade. This isn t a very good school and it lacks leadership. The teachers don t really care about the students and from my experience will sometimes let them do as they wish rather than help. They only contact parents because of complaints about you re child. They never contact the parent with something positive to say. They have little activities and there are countless fights and problems at the school. If you argue with a teacher on anything you are talking back and being this respectful. I have seen friends be suspended for things they have not done. The parents don t even come to the school any more because is pointless. To me this is a very bad school.And I am happy that I m finally leaving this year. Also I believe the last review was by a teacher not by a student. Because those are the things they always want us to say.
