Great school, great people. We're almost done with our second year at Kirby Hall School and I could not have asked for a better environment for my child. We are greeted every morning with friendly hellos from staff and parents alike. It may seem small, but it brightens the morning. The workload is high, but it lacks any resemblance of overwhelming pressure. It is spread out throughout the day and week that we don't feel overwhelmed. The school has also increased its available after school activities, as well as family events, which keeps us active in our child's education and environment. I knew when I began my search for private schools in Austin that I wanted 2 things: 1. a solid education that would challenge and support my child in future classrooms and experiences, and 2. a small classroom size environment that would not lose my child to the masses. We are nothing short of happiness and relief with Kirby Hall School.
