My daughter started at Irwin and now has graduated from high school. Irwin is much better than her middle school or high school for the teachers' dedication and the parents' contribution. Jeff is an excellent principal, who successfully turned the ISTEP scores up.

The school is oneof thebest in the city. The teachers are constanlty upgrading their knowledge based on research. The staff shows they not only care about the kids, but the kids' entire families. Parental involvement is cery high and the PTA is one of the best in Indiana. The principal only hires the best employees as evidenced by the time and painstaking research he does to find high quality candidates from which to choose. The students take ownership of the school. Shared leadership is apparent as the principal, teachers, parents, and students all have roles in supporting the continuous improvements in academic achievement. Curent test results show that at almost every level the school has set new performance records and has moved up to the second highest performing school in the district!

Irwin school has a staff that you can count on when you need them. From the secretary that answers the phone to the principal. They are a very caring staff that strives to be sure your student is learning as much as possible while they assure them they are loved and cared about.
