My children have attended IKE since it opened 2 years ago. Prior to that they attended Avery Elementary just up the road and I have to say even though Avery was nice it was HUGE! Indian Knoll seems more personable, which is important when it comes to my children's education. All the parents and staff are nice and pretty well acquainted. All of their teachers have went out of their way to help my child succeed and they have went out of their way to come to the boys sporting events as long as I provided a schedule. The school really encourages the children with attendance drawings each quarter. I really have no complaints about Indian Knoll Elementary.

This is our second year at Indian Knoll, and we couldn't have asked for a better place! The staff is Incredible, and so far the teachers have been unbelievable. They always go above and beyond to help our children learn or if they are having problems with certain subjects they will do whatever it takes to make sure they learn what they need to learn! I can't believe this school has only a 7 out of 10 rating, because we have not had 1 bad experience. The communication is great, we are always getting emails or notes home for everything that's going on. I have spoken with their teachers over the phone on several occasions and they are always kind and caring and concerned. I never have to worry if my children are safe and the teachers treat them like they are their own. We have been VERY PLEASED here, and the environment is always uplifting and fun for the kids. They love going to school, and they are always ready to get there! There's nothing like that peace of mind as a parent when you don't have to worry about your babies being cared for! I can't say enough good about Indian Knoll!

Like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting. Dr. Gazell has proven that we don't have to tolerate the low standards schools have slipped to. I cannot image a better public or private school anywhere
