Irondale Community School is a 3rd-5th grade school that is located in the heart of Irondale. It has 17 classrooms and about 50 employees. ALL of the faculty and staff at Irondale Community work together to ensure that EVERY child in the school is cared for and encouraged to do their best - not only in their studies but in their character as well. My son attended this school and we could not have asked for a more loving, caring school. The only thing that could use some improving is parental involvement. While demands on parents' time has changed over the years, we must continue to put our children first.
ICS does a good job of meeting the students intellectual needs. The teachers offer interesting, educational activities for the gifted. The music teacher does an outstanding job! We are pleased with the caring teachers and the education our grandson is receiving at Irondale Community School.
ICS has made tremendous strides in the past few years in its high expectation from all of its shareholders - from the board of ed down the the last student and his/her parents and their progress in meeting those expectations. We could use a bigger budget to provide more classroom teachers and a full-time ELL instructor.
