Since The Kinkaid School began over 100 years ago, the founders devoted themselves to their students. That devotion and dedication is key to the success that continues to this day. From Pre-K to 12th grade, the school is proud of their strong student body that remains rich in character and bound by tradition.
Kinkaid is the oldest independent co-educational school in Houston which was founded by Margaret Kinkaid in 1906. The school’s forty-acre campus is located in Piney Point Village in the Memorial area on the west side of Houston.
A unique feature of Kinkaid is the nearly four acres of land used solely as a nature study area, Kinkaid’s Backyard. Students are able to learn and understand natural ecosystems hands-on, compared to simply reading about it a textbook. Combining all senses in learning is something the Kinkaid staff embraces in all areas of education and is a factor in deciding wonderful field trips.
The Kinkaid community promotes honesty, responsibility, and kindness, which will help your child feel comfortable in the classroom thanks to the encouragement from the teachers and fellow classmates. The positivity and respectfulness flowing from the community makes each and every student take part in something bigger than themselves.
