Increasing Student Achievement
Kirby Middle AYP Status
  • Kirby Middle School did meet AYP status.
    Currently, our school is recognized as a School
    in Good Standing. This means that we made enough
    adequate progress in consecutive years to be
    considered a school in good academic standing.
    Our goal is to maintain this status by scoring
    high enough this year on the TCAP exam in
    mathematics and language arts and the TCAP
    Writing Assessments to remain in good standing.
    This will take more effort on all stakeholders
    according to our progress this previous year.

Academic Philosophy
  • We desire for each and every student to find
    academic success and a comfort zone within the
    school. It is our goal to implement a diverse
    approach to instructional delivery in a real
    effort to reach every child in a manner that
    he/she learns best. We want our students to
    develop a lifelong love of learning and aspire to
    accept rigorous academic challenges for the rest
    of their lives.

Differentiated Instructional
  • We will employ differentiated instructional
    strategies. We understand that projects and
    hands-on activities are important components. In
    addition, we will use multiple sources for
    instruction including textbooks, outside
    readings, technology, the community,
    manipulatives, experimentation, and simulations.

Exhibition Projects

  • We need your support to judge the students
    projects and share with the community the good
    work students have achieved.

  • We will integrate reading, writing, and
    mathematics into all areas disciplines.
  • We will have meaningful Early Board Work daily
    that is aligned with curriculum pacing and TCAP
  • We will utilize the rule of 85/80/80. Which
    means we will not move on until 85 of our
    students can reflect 80 mastery of 8o of the
    addressed SPIs. We will have daily assessments
    of student mastery. Using strategies such as
    CPS, clap your hands, Thumbs Up or Thumbs down.

  • We will use a school wide common grading scale.
  • We will sponsor wide ranging clubs and
    activities. This allows for students to become
    actively engaged in school and cultivates
    opportunities for adult advocacy.
  • Service Learning activities will provide
    opportunities for our students to practice
    kindness to those within the greater community.

  • We are Data Driven. Understanding that by
    examining data and effectively using the results
    to determine academic planning we can move
    swiftly towards consistent and predictable
  • We understand the importance of Technology
    Integration into our lesson design. Students can
    retain more information when it can be
    manipulated and/or applicable to real world
  • School Improvement Plan is a living document and
    is periodically reviewed and revised by various
    leadership committees serving our school.

  • STAR is part of Board Policy 5121 which
