Open Quote Wonderful staff at this school. I have been thoroughly impressed with the Assistant Principal Mrs. Wolverton, the dedicated Music Teacher,and the wonderful Mother/Son PE Coaches. These professionals have been so kind and welcoming to my daughter. The building itself is very nice and clean. I am not crazy about the CY Fair open classroom concept, but the teachers we've been exposed to thus far have been exceptional. The school nurse, Mrs. Scantebury is lovely and very professional. I am very pleased with this school so far. Close Quote

Open Quote Kirk has an open room concept. The major drawback with this concept is with activities from adjacent rooms disturbing our child's room and vice versa. Also, the principle is ineffective. His teachers and APs seem to be apologetically limited. He avoids even trivial conversations with parents. We see him at school with no "hi", Hello, or any greeting what so ever. Outside the school, for example, we saw him at the circus one day with him sitting 2 rows in front of us. We said "hello". He acknowledge us as apparent strangers without even saying "hi" to our son which is his student. Close Quote

Open Quote School is fairly evenly mixed between disadvantaged and privileged students. the former group tends to bring scores down while also exposing students to mult-cultural surroundings. we are very happy with the school Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
