Low teacher:student ratio. They have a lot of aides that help with the classes. We've been here for 4 years and have always been impressed with the level of care and knowledge from the teachers. The Principal and VP are very hands on and know the kids. It's rare to walk through the school and not see them, even before and after school pick up. There is also a lot of parent and community involvement. Even those that do not have children at the school but live in the area come to support the events, like fall fest. I am very proud that my son goes to school here. We looked at a couple of private schools and felt that this was our better option.
I'm also one that believes in holding the parent(s accountable as well. I firmly believe that the more the parent(s) is involved with the child, completing homework, and keeping an open line of communication, the better experience their child will have and the more they will learn.
They all have such a positive attitude and they love those kids and really want them to do their best. And not once have I heard a teacher complain at Common Core. They speak about how they are changing and growing and learning with it as well. They say that if they have a bad attitude about it, then their students will too.
My son started kindergarten this year, and he's really excelling at Indian Hills. The principal, teachers, staff, etc. have all been very helpful. It's a great school and we look forward to the years to come!
My children have both done well at this school. They have improved each year, and are on track to succeed in their future educational experiences. I find this school to be a diverse blend of students and teachers. I highly respect the administrators, and enjoy the parent-teacher partnership at this school.
