  • Kirby-Smith is an inner-city school that Jacksonville through some money at and called it a "Magnet" program. There is a fair share of violence and the staff is so used to it they don't seem to think it is a problem.

  • This is one of the best schools i have ever been to. This is the only school in florida to have a computer game design class. We also have an award winning Robotics class. The teachers here are extreamly heapfull. Some other electives include Art, Computer Apps., and Technology. We have two complete computer labs and are working on a third. some after school clubs are, Computer Building club, Chess club, Guitar club, Robotics club, Video Game club, Anima club, Yearbook, Debate Team. We also have all of the duval county sports. The 06 football team was undefeated this year.
