This school was an amazing school. I am currently a 6th grade student and attend Irwin County Middle School. I am gifted it not only Language Arts but also Mathematics. I adored most of my teachers while I had conflicting issues with my 3rd and 5th grade teachers. This school is highly rated in my book and I would suggest to anyone with children in this area. The teachers do to the best of their abilities to help both the students and the parents. I was also in the ICES Gifted Program from 2nd Grade until now and I highly recommand that program also. This school is a wonderful school and should never be talked about negatively.
