I have no idea why this school is rated 8 out 0f 10, when it is the third leading high school in the entire state of Missouri! It was a 10 out of 10 a couple of years ago. It is STILL a 10 out of 10!!

Great community support for Kirkwood High School (as well as the middle/elementary schools). The teachers are world-class and the facilities are constantly being upgraded - new science building and gymnasium, renovated football/soccer/track stadium and a new pool coming soon!

I have already graduated three children from Kirkwood High School, (2003, 2004 and 2007). I now have a Freshman and Senior at Kirkwood High School and am very happy with the school, as I always have been. The school has great teachers, and there is a place at Kirkwood High for EVERY type of student. Yes, it has sports, theater, art, music...everything you want and need, but EVERY child, is accepted for who they are and are celebrated and supported!! THAT is what is most important to me!

This is a great school district, with always improving facilities. There is a great neighborhood feel with this school as well. All AP and advanced classes are offered and the community spirit is alive and thriving. The curriculum is what you make of it. If you use it to your advantage you will succeed.

Because they offer so much to the students and everyone works together so well, including sports and music - understanding you can play sports (football, basketball, hockey) and still be in band, too.ceiv

It is a great school with a broad curriculum. Each teacher I have met displays enthusiasm for his/her subject as well as for his/her students.

My friend's kids are thriving there, having transferred from another distric when they bought their current home. The kids love the cirriculum, extra cirrucular activies, the teachers and the environment. It's great to listen to them talk about their school in such an enthusiatic and postive way.

As the principal puts it: "We love your kids." This shows in everything including academics, sports, music, theater and the rapport that the teachers have with the kids. Our kids and our family are proud to be part of the Kirkwood Pioneer Community!

Who ever gave principal leadership less than 5 stars is crazy! Dr Holley goes to every sporting event and every year gets to know every single student! He goes to the english classrooms and learns everyones name and what they do at KHS or on their free time. I love KHS! Great school. I have learned so much! Go Pioneers!

Kirkwood HS is a great balance of supporting develepment for all students and for allowing encouraging participation in sports and clubs and other activities. We moved to Kirkwood for the schools and so far are very happy with what we have experienced. The leadership is top notch and cares about the students more than anything. This is very good and somewhat unusual in public schools. The music and arts programs are exceptional. The athletics program is wonderful too. So much for the kids to do and participate in. They don't have time for mischief!

I have two teenagers currently enrolled at Kirkwood High School. My two daughters have opposite interests and hobbies and Kirkwood accomodates both of their personalities. The teachers are top-of-the-line and give 100%. The business department is outstanding and has sparked my daughter's enthusiasm for advertising. I believe Kirkwood is the best school in St. Louis county.

Kirkwood Senior High School is one of the best public schools one could possibly attend. The teachers will work with a students, whether it's the whole class or individual. Kirkwodd's music program are one of the best in the area. They go to participate all over America. Kirkwood's athletic program is just as fabulous, the swim/dive team has a GPA of 4.1, and the football team has been to the semi-finals (04-05). Overall Kirkwood is a wonderful place to receive an education for any kind of student.
