Short of attending Kirby School, the best way to understand what happens here is to see it through the eyes of the community. Students love the opportunities they’re offered; faculty love the chance to share their passions with engaged students; and parents love knowing that their children are energized by the environment and cared about by their teachers.
These are only a few of our stories, but together they illustrate the intellectual curiosity, the accepting community, and the dynamic interplay of students, teachers, and families that characterize what one student calls our “love of learning.”
