Imagine Of Mableton in one word is "GARBAGE". Office staff and teachers are "GARBAGE" over all this school needs to close.
This school is suffering from horrible administration, specifically the principal and his superiors. Incompetent teachers are rewarded while knowledgable teachers are treated as a threat and severely punished. Unfortunately, the incompetent teachers are left to instruct the well deserving students. This school focuses on money and maintaining its tarnished image as opposed to doing what is needed to ensure student achievement. Student issues regarding possible neglect and academic and behavioral concerns are of no care to the administration. Please do not send your children there. The school is said to have not received approval for its contract renewal from the Cobb County School Board and I fully support their decision.
I have had all three of my children enrolled here. My eldest graduated in 2009 and was the 3rd highest in academics in her graduating class. My 2nd just graduated this year and received honors including Jr. Beta club and student of the year. My son is the only one left and I wish there were an Imagine High School
I would actually give it a 2 1/2... The Principal at this school is absolutely wonderful "DR.B "! I feel that his staff has much needed room for improvement! They spend a lot of time on behavior. I not giving it another yr.
I have some questions about the 6th grade program. My son would go to East Cobb if not this school. Weaen't to thrilled with how East Cobb looks but there doesn't seem to be many options for middle school for Sibley On Paper Mill. Does anyoen have any feedback? Please help me!!!
We recently withdrew our child from IIAM because of the below grade level work and homework. It's just not challenging enough for those students that are ahead of the class. We encountered several administrative issues as well that have been very frustrating along the way. We really tried to give the school a chance despite it's tainted reputation in the community. Several changes would need to be made before IIAM gets my recommendation.
I just enrolled my son this year and he'll be entering 7th grade. I hope this is a great experience for him at this school. I like the fact that they will be wearing uniforms because sometimes clothing can take take children minds off what they need to be focusing on. So i'll be back to give a rating as far as our experience.
The school year began with a bang! I am very pleased with the leadership and teaching staff. There is focus and vision from all stances. It is great to be a part a parent a part of this team. While this is still a new school and there are still some growing pains, things are going great.
After a rocky start to the 2009-2010 school year, things seem to be settling down. The principal has been available to hear my feedback. I've seen improvement in communication which was one of my concerns. We are very happy with the teacher. I am hopeful we will continue to make progress in building a great school.
Congratulations on making ayp, after being around for only 3 years..Wow! way to go - imagine (iiam) ...Where believers become achievers! our new principal is setting the pace and our great teachers are forging ahead.
We have a great new Principal, a International Baccalaureatee focused curriculm and we made AYP. Student enrollment is growing and we will probably be on a wait list by fall 2010.
This is our first year at IIAM and I must say they have a long way to go, but as with any new school or business there are going to be challenges. The school received a new principle towards the middle of the school year and he seems to be heading the school in the right direction. The school has a great curriculum and a lot of potential. Parents just have to decide whether they are willing give the school a chance and hang in there through the challenging times. The first grade and six grade teachers did a great job this school year!
This school lacks structure and organization. I couldn't take it and transfered my son, he is now thriving at another school. I think the school has good teachers, but don't provide them with the necessary resources to meet the needs of all students
I moved my 2 children, 5 and 6th grade from Austell Primary. I immediately noticed that my 5th grader has been assigned several projects that require her to do research. My 6th grader did not have the same in 5th, although he was in the Target program. They have also had field trips, which is also something that was never done with Austell. Only issue is they do not have target/gifted program, so the challenge of that program is not there for my 6th grader, but the day to day work seems to be more challenging for him than he had at the prior school. They have decreased the wait time drastically recently for car-riders.
Execellent curriculum, but the carpool wait for student is terrible.
Having two kids attending this school for the second year, I am hoping for a much better year. Last year my expectations were not met although I knew that this was a new school and that there would be some problems. One of the issues that concerned me was that the principle was replaced in the middle of last year. Teacher turnover was higher than I expected, along with the number of teachers that were not certified. I do believe that this can be a good school but I do not have the time with my oldest in 7th grade. I also belive that this school is better that the other middle schools in Mableton.
The school is new with a lot of changes but it has great potential and the parents really are involved. It is a nice alternative to what is availabel.
So far so good. Its a new school. I think the ASP program is what I really like. My son is able to do his homework and learn new things. Piano, Chess George B. lewis
