I would like for others to know that this is an excellent school for a student to attend. In spite of the bad publicity the Birmingham City Schools get in the media, I would like to commend the staff on identifying a learning problem that my grandchild had. She had attended 2 Hoover City Schools and they failed to identify and help her with the learning problem. Thanks to Inglenook Elementary for helping my grandchild with her problem so that she can move forward and obtain a better education.


Posted December 13, 2005

Inglenook is ery condusive to learning. My children have gone to Inglenoo for three years and I am very pleased with heir performance. My children have been to other schools and none compare to Inglenook. At Inglenook, children are given explicit instruction and review is continuous until each child reatins the information. All students are assessed and is placed based on his or her needs. This is exactly what all schools need to have in place in-order that each student's needs are adressed properly. My hat goes of to all of the teachers at Inglenook because they need recognition for the abysmal opprotunities they are giving their students. Inglenook is Birmingham City's best kept secret. So once you have read this please pass the word, because there are many parents that are searching for a great school!
