Ivy Drive is a small neighborhood school (difficult to find these days) in an extremely convenient (everything you could possibly need is within 5 miles) and affordable location. It still has many stay-at-home parents and walkers, which gives it a family feel. Overall, we've had caring, wonderful teachers. Studies are differentiated depending on students' ability and the kids do an amazing amount of reading. First rate art program - my kids love it. I've investigated schools in other towns, charter schools, magnet schools, private schools and I've even had my kids in the local parochial schools. For us, Ivy Drive is head and shoulders above the rest!
My daughter just started at ivy Drive this past year and it has been a wonderful experience for all of us. Half way through the year there were some circumstances that required my daughter to get a little bit of extra attention. The teachers and staff were very attentive to her needs and even after the situation was over they still made sure that they paid close attention to her needs. The school has made my 6 year old daughter aware of current events as well as helping her to succeed as a student.
