IAF is a friendly place. Parents are welcomed by administration, teachers and staff. They are respected, and are considered real partners in the learning process. At IAF, parents are expected to encourage students, arrange a quiet place and time for homework, and have the health, clothing, and personal needs of students in order. However, when some of the needs of children are not met, IAF helps arrange for resources, whether they be food, clothing, or transportation. The extra help provided for students, and often families, builds a strong bond between the school and the family, which also helps IAF to distinguish itself as a caring and helpful school. The culture IAF builds with parents is one of trust. When parents believe and trust, marvelous things can happen.
