Indianola has some good teachers, and some bad. Much like anywhere else. The place where it falls short now is in the administration. The office staff is terrible and since Virginia Armstrong left, the school is running into disarray. There are a few gems here as far as teachers, but they can't help that they are in one of the worst school districts around or that the administration is so terrible. I really wish something could be done since I still have children here. We are strongly considering moving out of the district just because of the issues we have faced with the district and the administration at Indianola.
My Mother went to this school, my brother and sisters went to this school, I went to this school from K-6, and my oldest daughter is now attending. She's reading very well and her math is getting better every day. I love the teachers and the principal is very friendly and caring. My daughter is currently on the leadership team and she's finally comming out of her shell.
Indianola School has Teacher's and Instructional Aides are the Best! They really care about their students. The school may be old and not up to date but the staff really know how keep school spirit alive. The students are not the richest but they love to learn and they are always ready to help out or at least give it a try. I would recommend this school to anyone that would want their child in a loving, caring and tremendous amount of support to their children with out all the fashion worries or problems that big city schools have. There are not to many schools like this anymore and they should be proud of having such a great school!
