Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Isaac has good intentions; however, many of the students do not want to be there and they are ruining for the kids who do want to be there. Most want to be in the public middle school in New London and so they are disrespectful of the rules, the teachers and other students. My son is leaving Isaac and going back to a public school in our own town because of this.

This school once had great vision, great ideas, and great teachers/ staff. Now it has become a publicity stunt with a bad leader. There are a few remaining great people teaching and trying to re-direct the school. But I would not send my children to this school, what you are being sold, is not was is actually happening any longer.

This school had ideals that were collaborative and arts-focused. Unfortunately, newer leadership has caused the school to drop in test scores because it does not have a shared vision; it no longer values the voices of the community. There is no evidence of being arts focused or having any quality programs. Most of the best teachers have left. I no longer recommend it and will not send my children there. Very sad.

I am a current student at ISAAC and we are a very close school. Everyone knows everyone evem if you just got accepted into ISAAC your treated like family. The only problem with this school is that it's not the way it was before. My older brother used to go here and his version of it differ's from mine. He said that the teachers cared very, very much about the success of the students and now its as if one or two teachers do.

I graduated from the ISAAC school two years ago and am currently attending the Williams School. My social experience at ISAAC was fantastic- having students from three different grade levels in one class for nearly all classes helped in many ways for younger students to get guidance from older peers, and for older students to take on a mentoring role for their younger peers. This was particularly true my first year. However, administration changes led to this once free-going school of openness to become a typical middle school where the teachers no longer have the desire to teach as they once did. Currently all classes are divided by grade level, and many of the founding principles of the school are gone. ISAAC is not what it once was.
