"Great school spirit culture/atmosphere to learn in. Has the feel of a public yet private school. The majority of students are really smart kids who get into high-ranking colleges. The small town feel of the Kirkwood community itself compared to the greater St. Louis area can seem a little sheltered at times, but it’s very friendly. It’s a bigger school, but the faculty does a great job of knowing each of their students by name, and they set aside time for students to help with academics. This is also a good faculty if you need letters of recommendation for college, and there is a huge alumni network. Overall, don’t waste your money on a private school education when you can get it at Kirkwood! It has a great regional reputation as well as strong academic programs. It is a great platform for students interested in going into journalism or business or the world of professional athletics. I would definitely recommend Kirkwood High School!" - Niche.com
