This school was the best school I have ever been to. I ve been to this school since fifth grade and I experienced all its changes. All the other schools I have been to were very boring and wouldn t teach well. This school showed me new things. The teachers and staff even know my name. I made a lot of friends here and I have had a lot of memories here too. I couldn t imagine my life without going to this school. I improved on nearly all my subjects. This school made me who I am. And I will never forget about my time here. I Would love to visit the school again when i am in high school and look back at those happy memories. Thank you Ivy Bound for this great experience and all the fun memories. I am off to High School were new friends will be made and new memories will be created. But i will not forget this one school that changed my entire life. This school was just amazing. I am proud to be from this school and thank you.
IBA is a great school,we are very glad and proud to had been lucky our son was selected to attend to 5th grade and continue until his last grade in this school.The teachers and office staff are knowledgeable and friendly and inspire you confidence .The school premises gives your child a sense of community and safety the learning contents and metods are high quality and updated with this times.We love IBA!
IBA is an amazing school. My daughter has attended the school since 5th grade and will graduate next year. I feel that she has grown so much since attending this school. The principle, teachers and staff are key to her growth. The school is small which is a positive as the staff knows everyone and keep abreast of what is going on at all times. I would recommend IBA as it is the hidden jewel school.
This is a good school, my daughter has been there for three years. I feel safe to send my child to school every day and i'm confident that she will get good education. The school will definitely benefit from moving to the bigger building.
This is our third year at Ivy Bound. We have two children there one in 5th and one in 7th grade. We choose this school because of its small size and wonderful academic program so that our girls would not get lost in the system. The teachers all specialize in the areas that they teach. They are enthusiastic and make learning interesting. The administration is wonderful and it feels like a big family. I feel like we are having a private school experience for our girls without the cost. The knowledge my girls have about science, computers, technology, and their ability to annotate books is beyond High School level. We are really blessed to have this educational opportunity for our girls. It has far exceeded our expectations for a middle school learning environment.
Our son has been attending Ivy Bound Academy since 5th grade and he is now in 7th. We are very happy and continue to be, having our son at this school. The staff is so passionate at what they do and the quality of the education cannot be beat! Our son is thriving and we know he is getting well educated and preparing for the future, in addition to gearing up to attend high school. We are thankful for the administrators and teachers.
When your child comes home, and randomly says that he likes his school and his teachers. When he's asked by family friends or people inquiring about schools, he's not shy about telling them why he's happy at his school. A student's testament is stronger than any metric or rating. The Student's opinion is one of significance, and IBA makes certain that the Student knows both he/she and their success matters. The school is not just about strong academics, it's also about building character and nurturing great citizens. It's academically challenging at times; however, that's a telltale sign that my son (and his classmates) is learning and curious about learning. IBA has provided the environment to allow for that curiosity. The teachers and staff are highly approachable & responsive, and constantly encourage the Students to give their best efforts, all of which is extremely important and a huge plus for any parent. Our family is exceptionally happy with IBA, and feel that our son is getting a best-in-class education (no pun intended.)
This school is truly amazing! really care to provide the best education. My son it is in 5th grade and make the change to this school it is one of the best decision that we had done.
I love the fact that it's a small school therefor the teachers can focus more on each student,not to mention that I can check on line for missing assignments and current grades.
We'd heard that Ivy Bound was well above standards so we applied thru the lottery and got in for 5th grade. The transition first few months was hard but wow - the boost in self confidence and grades were immediately noticed. The teachers are dedicated and although the school is small, it seems to help the kids feel happy and content. Academics are above and beyond and they seem to have a handle on the new common core standards much earlier than most LAUSD schools. Sometimes size does matter and it makes it easier to implement the best standards. The kids are quite advanced and will be well prepared for ANY high school they choose.
My son will graduate from Ivy Bound Academy this summer and he has the education that is needed to success in hight School. My son feels very confident to the next level. The teachers, administration and environment are excellent at Ivy Bound Academy. They prepare our children to succeed not only at school but in their life. I highly recommend Ivy Bound Academy.
My daughter will be leaving ivy Bound this year I'm so thankful for everything they have done for her this is a great school and we Will be back with my other daughter thank you ivy Bound
Ivy Bound Academy. My dream came in true when I understand about the school.The reason was that every thing was new for us. New country, new school, new friends were all my daughters concern and nightmares.Now all I now she is happy, successful, and safe. Thanks all .
Ivy Bound Academy is a public charter but feels like a private school. This small middle school keeps the expectations high but the teachers and administration are there for your child when they need it. Despite the small facilities, they offer the technology and education needed to succeed in high school. What's more...they care about each child.
We have been extremely blessed to have found, and was accepted to this school. My initial concern was the size of the school, it's very small. But after our first year, this became the very reason why I love the school. Being a small campus gives the teachers and staff the chance to get to know each student. I cannot praise the teacher and office staff enough for all that they put into their school and students.
Our kids attend Ivy Bound's Sherman Oaks campus- we have one graduating this year and one is Class of 2016. Our children actually love school. Their ability to use computers far exceeds mine, their love of the core subjects (Math, English, Social Studies, Science) can only be explained by the quality of their teachers who make learning interesting and fun. The staff knows all the kids and their families by name and communicate will with parents and students alike, Our children have excelled since attending Ivy Bound and the skills, confidence, work habits and drive they have acquired as students there will be with them forever. They are preparing our children to succeed not only in their academic careers but in life.
My school is Ivy Bound Academy in Sherman Oaks, Ca. This is a small charter school and I love the ability to be a part of the community and not be overwhelmed. I feel my child is safe and getting a quality education with as much support as needed.
Ivy Bound Academy is a small charter school which provides high quality education to our young adults. I personally like this school because of the curriculum and the discipline. Teachers are very dedicated and the staff is very supportive. I will highly recommend this school, very good choice.
I enrolled my son in 5th grade in the middle of the school semester, and we were greeted warmly and received huge support and understanding from staff. Office people are amazing trying to keep kids safe.Everybody knows each other.My child is getting a private school education for free.We are blessed that we are in IBA. I only wish they extended to 12th grade.The school is very safe and has a very hands on principal.I can not say enough good things about the school.THANKS for your hard work!!!
The school quality is getting poorer and poorer. The best teachers are gone. New teachers are coming in/out almost bimonthly. Principal's concern is funding, money contributions, etc. Principal is money-driven. No sports activity at all, a lot of restrictions and liability concern. This school is good to be a tutorial service but not as a middle school. Bullying is also rampant. They do not have enough people to manage two campuses. Thus, the quality of education overall is poor. However, Mr. Gaunt is the best.
