Kirby-Smith Middle School Ratings & Reviews

Overall this school was good to me socially as I befriended basically everyone there but in terms of the actual academics it was not as good because many of the teachers there did not do their jobs as teachers and often sat around and did nothing all of the time. Managed to get out with straight As the whole time but that was with almost no help from the teachers

This school is amazing! I am currently on the gifted track because my teachers are moving me up so I can do a better math than what I was doing don't listen to all those other people who lie because their experience with kirby was ok

"In response to the previous comments , if there is a problem with a particular elective teacher it needs to be specifically addressed with DCPS administration not unfairly broadcast anonymously on the internet. In response to the clubs comment, a total lie. This school has the following clubs actively meeting; chess club, zoology, collectible card club, video game design club, video game club, courtyard crew, yearbook club, and FLL robotics club. In regards to gifted teachers, when a teacher leaves (we had 2 teachers move) the District often replaces personnel with surplussed teachers and the gaining school has no right of refusal. We have quadrupled our gifted population the last 2 years and all teachers in gifted positions must take gifted training, this takes time. Gifted endorsed teachers ""don't grow on trees"" they are developed."

Thought this was the best school for my child, but 2nd year in this school is a joke. They promise electives in which the teachers don't even teach ? If you want to set a record on number of wasted hours reading books go to kirby. There are even teachers teaching gifted that never taught the subject with no background in the subject . Clubs no it's all lies just to get you in.

Very disorganized. A lot of fluff about electives, but the truth is those are for selected children only.....kids and parent choices don't seem to matter. This is the 3rd year my child has been placed in same elective. These folks talk the talk but don't walk the walk. Any question to teachers are usually met with defensive rather than helpful attitude. I understand the teachers have a rough job too....but the kids should come first. I know Kirby wanted to be a path to Paxton so maybe the gifted kids have a better experience. However, the other kids, even the bright ones, seem to be an afterthought. Currently, a few of the teachers don't even post on the grade portal. Presumably, to keep parents in the dark so we won't bother them with our concerns. Our second child, who is in gifted, is now at James Weldon and what a difference! Kirby could learn a thing or two from James Weldon about how to improve, how to better utilize current technology, how to better communicate with parents. The only reason I gave 3 stars and not 2 is because there have been a few great teachers over the past three years, but the overall school experience has been disappointing. Lots of luck!
