    My son has just completed Kindergarten. We are very happy with Kilgour. My son's teacher was wonderful and attentive to his needs. In addition there are many opportunities for him to learn outside the classroom - even in Kindergarten! (sports choir etc... ) The parent group is very active - more than I recall as a child. It is nice to know your kids are part of a community.

    Both of my children have been at Kilgour for years my son since 2nd grade and now in 6th and my little girl since Kindergarten. We have had the pleasure of knowing some exceptional teachers along the way. The best part in my opinion is the dedicated and hard working principal Miss Cook. They just don't get any better than her.

    We are very happy with Kilgour Elementary School. Compared to our previous school the principal is very involved and the teachers have high expectations for the students. The atmosphere is supportive and the other families are friendly. Since it is a neighborhood school it is a lot like what I remember school to be when I was a child - except better.

    My child went to this school from Kindergarten through 6th grade. She was very well educated. Now she goes to Walnut Hills and I feel she was well-prepared by her teachers there. The social scene might be difficult for some children who don't live in Mt. Lookout or Hyde Park. But otherwise if you want a good education and that is the most important thing to you it's a good place to send them

    I am a parent and know firsthand that I have had consistent problems with this particular school ranging in issues involving its social environment and integrity of the faculty.

    Kilgour is a gem! We have two children (1st and 2nd grade) at Kilgour. There is a fantastic staff of teachers and administrators spectacluar parental involvement and a rigorous academic curriculum (most continue to Walnut Hills!)We had looked at all of the private schools in the area and we still decided on Kilgour. It is a fantastic neighborhood school that really supports a community of academic and personal achievement. We are so fortunate to be a part of this school!
