About Our School
Kill O’ The Grange National School opened its doors in 1963 and is now in a beautiful new building since 2004. We have 215 pupils and 13 teachers. The school is managed by a Board of Management, which is comprised of the Rector, the principal, parish nominees, teacher and parent nominees. The aims of the school can be summarised as to provide a happy, intimate and caring environment of learning that teaches Christian values with high standards. It is a school that considers each child as an individual.
