My daughter has been to a couple of schools and has never been so traumatized. She is special needs and has behavioral issues and it will take me some time to undo the trauma they have caused her due to their lack of education in how to deal with these issues and their refusal to put her in an appropriate setting.
This school has a wonderful atmosphere. The building needs repairs, but with a dwindling budget, I'd rather save the teachers than fix cosmetic problems. My daughter needs extra help and they go above and beyond to make sure they they accomodate every need he has. Currently they are trying to save the all day kindergarten. Wonderful teachers, great principal.
I absolutely love Irving School. I went there from K-7th grade. And now my 4 children have had the opportunity to attend also. It is a close knit family type atmosphere. Everyone cares. I'm proud to say my children go to this school. Good Luck Irving!
Irving school is in an older building but the important issue is how the teachers interact with students and parents. I find that the teachers really do care about the students and the level of education is good. My daughter loves to go to school and is reading two grades above level. There is diversity in the school and I feel this is important for all children who will soon be adults and live in a diverse world. In the future this will help the children who will become adults to accept people no matter what race, religion or ethnic backround, this is what helps keep peace in the world.
It is an averge school that has great teachers.Although the teachers are good the building is a mess but I have a feeling the mayor is going to fix that. My son loves it. He is excited to go to school every day and he loves the teachers.
We moved into this school district mid-year and they really made my daughter feel welcome. In addition, my daughter has special needs and they went the extra mile to make sure her accommodations were in place immediately and even trained the entire staff to help her. The teachers are very caring and get the kids excited about learning.
Irving School has many caring teachers. They go the extra mile to help motivate our children who have many different problems and needs. Our children need to be recognized, too many kids are overlooked. When I was a kid, my favorite teacher was the one that had parties and laughed. I learned a lot in her class and many teachers at Irving remind me of her. Stop fighting and smell the roses.
my son loves the school in first grade they had him reading at almost a third grade level.so far teachers are always willing to help and listen . and Mr. Gallo is always there when I have a question .My son loves all his classes.
Giving candy and prizes out to reward children is a sign of inexperiance. The 'warm and fuzzies' need to lighten up. where is the leadership in the principal's office. The new super is here... hope she steps in!
The building itself is certainly old and could use some updating, but as far as my children are concerned, they love it there. The teachers I have had experience with have been wonderful. Parents need to be more involved, but the existing PTO does a good job with limited numbers of volunteers.
School looks to be neglected. Very dark, dingy, appears to never have been painted since it was built. It needs a lot of work. Pto parent involvement is terrible, maybe 10 - 12 parents show up at meetings. Nobody seems to care much there.
