I am so glad my daughter goes to Kirk! She recently completed Kindergarten, and had an incredible year. Her teacher continuously challenged her, and she was reading chapter books and working on 2nd grade sight words by the end of the year. Her teacher also sent home advanced math homework, once again challenging my bright student. She quickly made friends who live in our neighborhood and those surrounding Kirk - she did not know many girls her age from the area previously. It is great to now have play dates with friends nearby! I have also been pleased with the Kirk PTO and staff. The PTO organizes social events as well as fundraisers - it seems there is always something going on. The PTO was able to buy new technology for EVERY classroom last year, and also worked with the MUDs to purchase fabulous new playground equipment (a very large structure), among other things. The recent focus on Balanced Literacy really helped to move the needle for test scores last year. The principal intends to build on that and other best practices for this year and the years to come. I am confident that my child is getting an excellent education at Kirk Elementary!

Kirk Elementary is a wonderful school that not only offers dedicated teachers and staff, but also a truly diverse, real world experience for its students. The student and staff population reflect the diversity that makes Houston such a unique, metropolitan city. This is my family's 5th year to have a child attending the school. So far, my kids have had excellent teachers that are well trained in state of the art literacy programs and current science and math techniques. I am often surprised by the facts and information stored in my kiddoes' minds that they have learned from their classroom experiences. The Gifted and Talented program has given my kids the chance to delve deeper into topics and explore their creativity. They've had fantastic teachers to guide them along the path. The only thing I would add as a draw back is that I sometimes thing the homework could be a bit more challenging, but it is my understanding that it is set by the district. However, I have found the teachers are willing to offer guidance for additional work and activities to help supplement student learning.

I used to like this school a lot until I found out what kind of principal Mr Olgivie really was. my son attended Kirk since pre k to first grade.I loved his pre k teachers but his k and first grade teachers were horrible. they really didn't care if a child learns or not and being an involved parent this bothers me. I was very active in the PTO at the school. just alone with a read a thon over 14 thousand was raised and many of these are held during the yr, which I didn't mind at first thinking I would see the results of the money raised. WRONG! after all the money raised over three years, they finally put in a little slide, that's it. No upgrades made to the school, no field trips for the kids. when I asked why there were no field trips for the kids, the principal replied that the kids could not afford it, which shocked me because most of the kids that attend Kirk are wealthy and the school raises enough money every yr to sponsor a child if needed. well for my son's second grade yr he is attending Lamkin. this school recently upgraded computers for the students and offer many active for them.

This is an amazing school. It's has gotten a bad rep in the past due to a select few students but I think that it has been changed. i have a kindergartner and first grader and I am a deeply involved parent. The teachers are great and Kirk was one of the few school that excelled on it's testing this year. It is a huge accomplishment for this school because of the testing in the past. Both of my children were lucky enough to have Mrs. Hankins as there first teacher and she is absolutely amazing. By the time my daughter exited kinder, she was reading on a 3rd grade level! The student-teacher ratio is real low which lets teachers give more individual attention. The PTO is awesome. This school is all a round a great school.

My husband, son and I all love this school. The staff is very friendly and my son's Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Johnson, is excellent. The school is very clean and the children always seem happy to be there when I drop in. The staff/teachers do a great job keeping the kids under control and still keeping a positive vibe.

I love this school! My daughter enjoys going to school here. The staff and administration are awesome and they really care about the individual student. Of course, my daughter works hard, follows the rules, completes her homework, and is prepared for tests. You have to give equally to get equal results. As parents, we are also very involved with the PTO and stay on top of activities and needs of the school. The principal walks around, sees what's going on, and really gets involved...he's not a desk sitter, which is great.

I feel that my children have received an excellent education at Kirk! The teachers work very hard and are very dedicated. Student/Teacher Ratio: approx. 18 to 1. Mr. Ogilvie, principal, continues to steer this school in the right direction and has stated the importance of not falling behind, especially with technology and what the future holds for our children. The school is very diverse, primarily due to being a 'bilingual' school with almost half the students being Hispanic. Bilingual classes are separate from 'mainstream' classes. The Gifted and Talented program is challenging for those students who qualify with projects and activities that make them think 'outside the box.' The neighborhoods that feed to Kirk are primarily gated communities that offer a 'melting pot' of families. The PTO offers many ways to get involved (science programs, JA, classroom readers, Family Fun Nights, Festivals, etc.) and parents are highly encouraged to volunteer.

Great school! This school is very dedicated to each student. Excellent staff.

Kirk is very average. It's situated in the middle of expensive gated communities but 50% of the school is tagged 'economically disadvantaged'. this translates to very little parent involvement from this group. Our biggest complaint is that Kirk does not have a good GT program. 8 students tested in but they have 22 in the class. The school teaches down to the average student instead of encouraging children with high academic potential

Kirk is a great school. Teachers are dedicated. PTO is active. The gifted and talented program supports the high achievers. Music teacher is wonderful. PE is on target. Chess club, choir are great after school activities. Family atmosphere. Front office staff are also great and welcoming. Nothing bad to say about this school. Thanks to a job well done.

My two children have attended Kirk for the past two years. I have been very pleased with Kirk. The teachers and support staff are wonderful. The entire staff at Kirk have the child's best interest in mind. Mr. O is a great principle and the teachers seem happy under his leadership. Great job Kirk.........

We have to move and I am so sorry to leave Kirk Elementary after only my daughter's kindergarten year. She received an excellent, well-rounded, and nurturing education here. I commend and thank the excellent teachers and the very supportive staff (music, PE, art, library, even cafeteria personnel) for a job well done!

Kirk has given our children everything they need to be happy, well rounded kids. A loving atmosphere, a curriculum that covers everything a child needs to thrive and more, challenging teachers and wonderful friends who come from our surrounding neighborhoods and parents who care! We couldn't be more satisfied with our neighborhood school!

We have been very satisfied with the level of education we have received for our children. The teachers are very helpful and good with the children. There is a high level of participation from the parents making this a very welcoming school.

Academia has been completely acceptable and I think, creative. The arts (music, pe and art) have not received as much time as I would like; think this is outside of the school's control. The parental involvement is good; the ones that can, do. The volunteer base at all 3 of my children's schools has decreased tremendously in the last 5 years.

Kirk has received a bad rap from individuals who do not go to the school. Kirk has an outstanding group of teachers and a top-notch principal. My children are in their 3rd year and I have been pleased with the school and my children are very happy there. Kirk also has a great base of parent and grandparent volunteers always willing and able to assist the teachers and staff.

This school is very diversified with low income and high income students. The school sits nestled in a very expensive neighborhood yet had 50% low income students. The school tends to spend most of it's time dealing with the 'trouble makers' at the expense of the other students. As a result parents who live in Lakes on Eldridge are almost forced to send their children to private school if they want a good education.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 25, 2004

We believe Kirk has room for big improvements. With such a high economically challeneged and english as a second language rate, the teachers spend more time discipling and spending more time getting those challenged kids 'up to par' with the rest. We found many kids showing complete lack of respect for teachers, property and other students, and we ended up removing our child from this school and sent to private, where she now loves it.

New PPCD program and they are the only school out of three that our child has attended that cares. They take action, listen, and communicate very well. They are awesome.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
