I love Irving. The year round calendar has helped my son grow and recall his learnings better since he has small breaks instead of one large break. The teachers and principle are great, as is the PTO!

As a grandparent, I think Irving Elementary School is top drawer. My grandchild is thriving in the school's atmosphere. I would also like to acknowledge the administrative staff in the office. Helpful, kind and accommodating! Keep up the good work, our youngsters' successes will be your reward!

Irving is the oldest elementary school in town. It is centrally located and houses both the Year Round and Traditional calendars. We opted for the YRE program. YRE is a wonderful option in Indianola and parents in Des Moines and other towns are often envious of this program. It is ideal for working parents, as children learn throughout the year and have the added benefit of breaks & intersession enrichment options rather than long summers in which they become bored and out of the learning mode. There are a wide variety of students at all academic levels, and our teachers adjust to accommodate students' needs. The PTO group works hard and is very active. This is a great way to meet other parents and be involved in your child's education. Irving is fortunate to have YRE & we are proud to say our progressive town offers it.
