Office Of The Superintendent
Dear Kirkwood School District Community,
We are so grateful for our community, which supports the District in so many ways. In adherence with our guiding principles of collaboration and transparency, we can achieve our mission to equip students with the skills, knowledge and understanding to be empathetic, successful and to value all people.
Thanks to our commitment to fiscal responsibility and the support of our community, we are able to hire and retain the highest quality teachers and staff, support rigorous learning in the classroom, and improve facilities for our students. This year in particular, we are looking forward to celebrating the completion of projects made possible through Prop R, which was approved by voters in 2021. We know our students, staff and families are looking forward to utilizing the new learning spaces. Once completed later this school year, every school building and facility will have received upgrades and improvements.
We are very proud of our tradition of excellence and high student achievement. Our students compete and receive national recognition in many categories including journalism, robotics, math, writing and extra-curricular activities. National Blue Ribbon School award recipients include Keysor Elementary School (2013), North Glendale Elementary School (2014), Westchester Elementary School (2007 and 2019) North Kirkwood Middle School (1996 and 2021) and Kirkwood High School (2022).
We invite you to participate and get involved. Thank you for your partnership as we work each day to ensure every student is engaged, empowered and ready for success.
David Ulrich, Ed.D.
