Around Campus

Your home away from home.


Every classroom at Kirby is unique.  Teachers are encouraged to organize their space in a way that makes the most sense for their subject and teaching style. Science classrooms are taught in fully equipped labs. Language classrooms are modeled to facilitate communication between peers. Classrooms may have couches, desks, or tables for students, and sometimes all three. With classes averaging just 12 students, teachers have freedom to create intimate, functional learning environments to suit the students’ needs.

Student Spaces

Kirby is more than just a place to learn. It’s also a place for students to study, relax, or just have fun with friends. Students are made to feel welcome in the school with comfortable hangout spots and quiet study areas. We see students making themselves at home during breaks and lunch, but also well after the school day has ended. Our Cultural Center is a sanctuary of sorts: students can can learn, eat, be exposed to traditions and holidays from many cultures, or just take a break.
