I appreciate the way that they help students take responsibility for their actions. When my child's character or lack thereof is revealed, they are gracious yet helpful in directing them to the proper behavior.
The homework is used to help reinforce what the students are learning in the classroom. On some nights there can be too much homework (that is why I didn't strongly agree), but most of the time that is not the case.
My children really enjoy the teachers at the school. They really take the time to help them understand what they need to learn. The students seem to have a positive influence on my children. I am grateful that I've found ICA for my family!
This school is biased in so many ways. Most of the elementary classes have children of staff members in the class. The 3rd and 4th grade teachers like to punish the children for every little infraction i.e. Coughing, talking, making noise etc. When I say punish they will write them a warning slip. If you receive 40 warning slips they will expell you. The administrator doesn't think it is necessary to think of positive ways to correct bad behavior. He would rather take the easy way of just sending home warning slips. They have no interest in helping the students. There is also a lot of racism at this school so if you are African American I would caution you not to go here. Some teachers are great but others are horrible! Administrator and principal will not help. They both essentially do nothing but sit around and teach classes and coach but do not do the administrative side of their job. It's been a very negative experience.
