At Kirk O' The Valley School, we believe children are best prepared for life's journey when they embrace their own and others' individuality; gain a genuine love of learning; acquire knowledge and the ability to express what they know; and discover their meaningful place in the world.
Our balanced, nurturing approach to educating children, a Kirk hallmark since 1961, helps your child gain the confidence to be successful not just in school, but in life itself.
At Kirk O' The Valley School, ours is a child-centered philosophy with a "touch of realism." While our curriculum and assessment program align with California state guidelines, we maintain the flexibility to make sure that all children are successful learners.
We do not try to make kids fit a curriculum; our children are viewed, and valued, as individuals.

School Reviews

  • Recommended February 22, 2014 - By far one of the best elementary schools in the valley. Truly follow the motto that childhood is journey. The school , its teachers , staff is so accessible and always open to parents to address any kind of issues , not that we had any in all 7 years my son was there. Has Available music, art, sports and tons of extracurricular activities. It has a great after school program for working parents . We highly recommend this school - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended February 22, 2014 - AWESOME! I drive from Simi Valley to Kirk O'' The Valley School for my two preschool students, ages 2 and 3 1/2. We love the community feel at Kirk and the fact that Spanish, Music, Library and Art are included in the tuition plus a wide variety of after-school enrichment classes as well. I can recommend Kirk O'' The Valley with 5 stars to anyone interested. My older children, ages 10 and 12 also attend their awesome summer camp, KKamp. Educational adventures are their goal, getting my kids away from video games and T.V. Camping and Nature themed activities that keep all my children''s interest combined with caring, responsible, qualified teachers make Kirk School a winner! - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended February 22, 2014 - My son is in PK at Kirk and we could not be happier. He is learning Spanish, music, art, computers, has a reading readiness expert helping him. The teachers are great and really care. Kirk is a real community where the students are nurtured and given focus as individuals, where the teachers and administrators know every child and where the parents and families are truly welcomed. We are so grateful for Kirk. - Posted by Parent
