In partnership with its dynamic communities, the Kirkwood School District R-7 has built a solid reputation as a district where children and their needs come first. Kirkwood schools and communities share a proud heritage and respect for tradition as well as a progressive attitude toward education for all children. District staff, parents and community members work together to provide innovative educational programs which focus on what today's youth must know and learn to become tomorrow's leaders.
The district, chartered in 1865, is the oldest in St. Louis County and one of the oldest west of the Mississippi River. Located in southwest St. Louis County approximately 15 miles from the city of St. Louis, Kirkwood School District covers an area of 15 square miles and serves all or portions of eight suburban communities: Des Peres, Frontenac, Glendale, Huntleigh, Kirkwood, Oakland, Town and Country, and Warson Woods. The district also welcomes eligible students from the city of St. Louis through participation in the St. Louis Voluntary Transfer Program.
With sidewalks and tree-lined streets, many Kirkwood School District neighborhoods are within walking or biking distance of the district's five elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school. The Kirkwood Early Childhood Center and a Parents as Teachers program serve the needs of children ages birth through seven years.
The Kirkwood School District and its surrounding communities reflect a blend of old town charm with new suburban vitality. Residents enjoy beautiful parks and recreation facilities, thriving municipal business districts, large shopping malls, an opinion produce market, and a nationally acclaimed children's science museum. Several parochial schools and a junior college are located within the district's boundaries.
