Kirkman Park Elementary

About The School

GCS Grab-and-Go Site
Children will be able to pick up meals Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Kirkman Park. Any children ages 0 to 18 will pick up their lunch for the day and breakfast for the following morning.

Kirkman Park is one of two Spanish Immersion language programs offered in Guilford County Schools. Students participating in the Spanish Immersion Program learn the North Carolina standard course of study entirely in Spanish.

Kirkman Park's small class sizes give the staff the opportunity to offer individualized and personalized instruction. The school's proximity to High Point University affords the staff the ability to further their professional education and also gives Kirkman Park's students the opportunity to engage with many of the High Point University students.

With a firm belief that character education should be taught as earnestly as a core curriculum, we do more than just teach reading, mathematics, and science lessons. We lay the foundation for all academic and life skills our students will need.

Special Academic Programs

Spanish Immersion Language Program
Students, beginning in kindergarten, participate in the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, but in the target language of Spanish. All the instructors are native-born speakers who share their language and culture with the students. Spanish immersion students perform at or above the GCS median in most assessment categories.
