We absolutely love Kirk Day School! We have 2 children that currently attend. We feel that they are not only getting an excellent education; they are loved and cared for very well by the teachers and staff. The school does an amazing job of maintaining high academic standards while integrating a Christian worldview and focusing on spiritual growth.

We love Kirk Day School for many reasons, the most important being the teachers' vested interest in each child academically and spiritually. My children love school all while advancing at the highest level of learning. We couldn't be more happy and excited about our school.
