Failure to comply with 401 classification with our special needs child. We had to pull our child from Ivory and place her in a private school. Principal refused to work with us, refused simple requests to assist our special needs child. (Example: Our child needed to sit in the front of the class and would need some downtime, if a meltdown occurs.) Our child is an honor roll student. I think this school might work better for people who are well-known within this click-ish town. Otherwise, you will find it to be a struggle if both parents work. I think the key is to monitor them closely and make many surprise visits.

My children attended private school last year. I was very apprehensive about sending my son to this school. I met with the principal before school began, and she seemed very eager to work with me. My son's teacher this year is AWESOME. He is in third grade, and he has had a GREAT year. He even got to participate with the Quiz Bowl team.

This is the first year that our child has attended this school district. We came here from the east coast. My son's teacher is great but the district could use some improvement. Not enough information on the website or updated board meetings. Parents have to hear everything through gossip, not the most reliable source.

Would have to rate as low class education and low class leadership... Melanie churchill is too involved in furthering her own career and the political friendships of a small town that she has forgotten the children, the parents, and community. This is not a school for the family oriented community, but rather for the who's who.

We have only been here for one semeseter, but I am not very pleased. My son had an extremely hard time with the transition. The students nor the teachers seemed to make it any easier on him. However, once I informed the principal of the situation, she stepped in and held a class meeting. Another good aspect is that they have been on some interesting field trips that weren't available to us at our former school.

In 2012-2013 Arkansas used the Benchmark Exam to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in literacy and grades 3 through 8 in math. The Benchmark Exam is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Arkansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
