This school truly needs an upgrade. The scholars want more opportunities outside of sitting in a classroom and going on field trips that they have to pay for (which means only 10% of the middle school scholars got to go field trips). The teacher morale is low because they do not get the professional development they need, especially when some are not fully certified. Also, parents do not get clear communication about their scholar's progress or what is going on at the school. Now if all of this is happening at the bottom...the problem is at the top. Administration pushes more on the staff than they can handle with a lack of professional development, support, and understanding. Parents need to know what is going on, scholars need to be happy, and teachers need to be believed in. Will this school's charter be renewed?

I have been pleased with the school and their progress. My nephew has been challenged with the work in a positive way at Ivy Prep after leaving a private school. If they continue down the current path, they will definitely become a top school in DeKalb County.

This is the school's first year and I am very satisfied. I have a boy in Kindergarten. The K teachers are great, and they use teaching methods suited for boys. The school has an extended day. The doors open at 7:30am, and pickup is staggered between 3:30 and 4:00pm. After hour support is offered to children that need it, as well as Saturday Academy every other weekend. Teachers communicate well with parents. There is a strict uniform policy with professional wear required on Mondays.
