    "My son was transferred from our local school to Kirkbride two years ago. It was the best thing for both of us. We both love the school and staff. All of the teachers,office staff,crossing guards and all of the other staff I've met have been nothing but friendly and professional. My son is in the learning support class and has been able to stay on grade level and above in some areas. Each morning he is happy to go to school to learn which is a change from his old school, he never wanted to go. The principal,Mrs. Magness is wonderful. She knows the children's names and parent's also. She does things for the kids I have never seen other principals do,like making sure they can go on class trips,or attend a book fair. I honestly don't have enough room to write about how much I like this school."

    "The Kirkbride school is a safe, clean, nuturing, learning place. Inside the school is so bright and cheerful. The teachers are hardworking and they care about helping children. My 3 children all have had good experiences at Kirkbride and 2 have graduated and have gone off to really good high schools. The principal and assistant principal care about safety. They are there every morning when kids come in and in the afternnoon when it is time to go home watching over our children to make sure they are safe. Kirkbride is a good school with lots of extra programs where kids can have art, music lessons and sports."

    "I went to Kirkbride School for an awards program for my son. He got an award for being a good reader. His teacher works very hard with the boys and girls so that they all read, write and do math well. I am pleased with this school and the test scores keep going up every year. The principal is always there to make sure that kids understand that learning is serious business."

    "Kirkbride is one of the finest schools in South Philadelphia with dedicated and hard working teachers and exceptional leadership from the Principal. Here are the following reasons why Kirkbride has quality academic programs: 100 Book Challenge Program for grades K-6-Students read daily from a wide selection of books in class and at home for approximately one hour a day. Homework is given consistently and effectively every day in grades K-2. There are computer intervention reading programs, i.e. Fast Forword and READ 180 to help students who are reading below level. School-wide writing contests and other reading and math activities in which students are always rewarded with prizes and certificates. The Principal in this school is one of most decent and impartial people who genuinely care about all of her students academic and social needs. I could send my child to any schools, but I chose Kirkbride."

    "This is not a school to enroll your children in. The princicpal is very harsh, condescending & 'in charge of her school'. We were reminded of that 4 times in one conversation today. If your child is teased and taunted by the bullies in the school and your child fights as a result your child will be considered the 'problem' and the principal will talk to you as if both 'you and your child are the problem'. This school is the pits!"
