ABOUT KILBY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Kilby Elementary School opened in 1959. In 1971, the PTA urged the renaming of the school for its first principal, R. Dean Kilby, who served there from 1959 to 1971.
Kilby students reside in the communities of Marumsco Village and Marumsco Hills.
Kilby Elementary houses an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program and offers extended day kindergarten to its students. Kilby students may participate in SOL remediation which is offered during the second semester of the school year.
Fourth and fifth grade boys who maintain a "B" average and receive other recommendations for outstanding character are asked to be "A Kilby Gentleman" and are a member of the "Kilby Gentlemen's Club.
Literacy Events are scheduled throughout the school year and all grade levels are invited to various events.
