At Kirkwood Elementary, you will find a true reflection of our world in our students, staff and families. We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive environment that supports and challenges all learners. We are the first AVID Elementary in Iowa (Advancement Via Individual Determination) and our teachers use WICOR strategies in their lesson planning (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization and Reading) to ensure quality student learning experiences every day! Please feel free to reach out with any questions, comments and constructive feedback. ~Anita
