my son has been at isely for four years and it is the most wonderful school. isely is a small school so all the teachers and staff know the children and treat them like their own. my son is so happy there and loves to go to school and learn everyday. i would recommend isely to anyone looking for a school of excellence. also, parents are involed with the school. parents know most all the kids as well.

My son went to Isely from KG to 5th grade. Great teachers - wholesome environment. Its a small school - so most teachers know all the students by name. The after hours latchkey is run by the school itself - so its a really nice little community with great attention to the kids. The gifted program is really well structured, and even in the regular classes, kids are encouraged to go above and beyond. I would recommend this school to everyone.

I have had 2 children attend Isely from Kindergarten through third grade. The school is small and staff is fantastic. The academic standards are higher than a traditional non magnet school. Wonderful school would recommend to anyone considering a traditional magnet.

Isley is a fantastic school. My daughter loves it. She was able to read chapter books right out of kindergarten. Great teachers, great staff, great school!

About the tests
