Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
The school does nothing! If bullying occurs the parents need to fight it out amongst themselves. Lord of the flies comes to mind!

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
Everyone is mainstreamed.. This allows for the teachers to teach to the lowest common denominator and other students suffer.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The HOS is coasting and has no skills to affect change. The front office are mommies who have screwed up everything from fundraising to social interactions

Develops character: Neutral


- a
They have no tools to do anything if a class is full of disruptors. This is a waste of tuition and time in vey formative years.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
The teachers do their best with limited resources and fear of retaliation from the ever changing leadership. The current lower school principal is an incompetent from a dirt floor school in Africa.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
The Homework is marginal if any at all. When you question school the stories keep changing

I Just read a review which are my exact sentiments, so I am reposting. In addition their hiring practices are in question as we just experienced a teacher who attempted corporal punishment and was not terminated but warned. We di immediately withdraw our honor student! "The Head of School, David Garner needs to go. There is no leadership within the school from the top down. Administration is incompetent at best. Lower School Principal called in each child from one classroom and asked each, "Who is the worst child in your class." Unprecedented! The unprofessionalism and lack of care about the school by David Garner, is ruining what used to be a great school. They need to replace Garner with someone who actually earns the money. Staff is living in fear of being fired, as they work on a one year contract. Several teachers were fired last year by the Lower School Principal, Trina Haygaru. The campus has "trailers" in the parking lot for classes. The qualifications of administration are in question. No concerns are ever addressed, the attitude is divide and conquer by admin. For 18K go look at the other private schools, Sycamore, Park Tudor, Orchard....no comparison. This school is a train wreck due to the lack of leadership and a person who is coasting to retirement and could care less about anything other than playing his guitar." Bravo whomever wrote this!

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
I think that the teachers are working in a toxic environment currently and have expressed anonymously that they are afraid of being fired and the tactics used by the administration have greatly diminished their ability to teach. There was an atmosphere of fear among the staff.

The 37 students in ISI s Class of 2012, many of whom had been at ISI since pre-school, have also been accepted at outstanding colleges in the US and overseas and have been offered $4.2 million in merit scholarship awards. This school model is working!!
