M. L. Kirkpatrick Elemtary School is a great school because the teachers really care about the students. Ms. Marena Miller is one of the most wonderful pre K teachers I have ever met.

I really enjoy the school and my son is very excited to attend there. The Teachers and staff are very friendly and he enjoys his Teacher Mr. Mendizabal. However, my child was hurt on the playground and no one was there to assist him with his injuries.
