Kirby is a great and very educated school. Yes I am aware of the behavior that has nothing to do with the school if the child wasn't raised right. It was between that child and that child's parents. The teachers are great and wealthy .

Please don't make the mistake of sending your child to this school like I did! This school needs to be shut down. Most of the teachers & administration are unprofessional & the students run the school with their bad behavior! This school is a great example of how Memphis City Schools not getting it right ...  Read more

Kirby is a great school. Kirby like any other school gets a bad reputation because of the kids who aren't involved in their education. The same kids who just come to school to start trouble is at every school. And I get angry when I hear people misjudge the teachers at Kirby high. I have been to two ...  Read more

I think that Kirby High is a good school to attend. Honestly I feel that this school is no different than any other Memphis City School. Yes, it does lack some things, but what's new? Many people in Memphis often criticize Kirby due to its perceived unsavory reputation. However, to those who hold that ...  Read more
