Ida is my alumni school and I choose for my children to attend Ida also because of the fact it is a smaller school, and a great community to live in. I have 3 children in the Ida Public Schools and 2 of which are in the Middle school now. Ida does what is needed to ensure the children are educated, able to participate in school sports, and teach them to be drug free!!!! The school offers assistance for kids whom have a hard time in certain studies, they have a great hearing impaired department, and all around the teachers take the time to do everything they can to help the students. I am proud to have my children attend Ida School District!!
I love the new principal and the 7th grade teachers. Also has a really great band, science and math programs.
They really care for the kids and they go out of the way to make the kids feel special.
My child has attended Ida public schools since pre-school and has made me promise that I will never take her out of that school. She loves it and for me, having an eleven year old love her school, that says it all.
I love Ida School system! I have never seen more dedicated teachers, and staff!
Small community school. Many children from generations of family with farmland. Student ethnicity is 98% white. Teacher/Staff appear 100% white. Student and Staff Support/Administration is UNDER State Average. Teachers allow older students to grade younger students. Younger student is at disadvantage if older student dislikes younger student. Its another form of bullying. Children reports are ignored. Student excitement to learn and grade suffer. Bus Drivers do not enforce rules equally and show favortism. Anyone can walk in school with anything.School did not show on the day President Obama's speech addressed to children. However, school showed President Bush's speech. What are the children learning? The list goes on. Where is the strong principal/school leadership/ teachers actually grading students? Who make up these scores? They are wrong! I wish someone had posted a truthful report before I put my children in this school. I am embarassed and will move my children out.
I believe that Ida is a caring school system that reaches out to all students in one way or another. If a parent or student searches they will find a program that will benefit them. I am a school of choice parent and I feel I could not have made a better decision to send my daughters to this school district.
we love ida schools! my daughter has done so much better since switching to ida from monroe public
I have 2 children currently at Ida Middle school and both are struggling, i cannot understand why this district doe'snt have a tutoring program in place after school for kids that need extra help with their academics, i wonder why the honor society kids can't get extra credit to tutor or over achiever kids get some form of reward to tutor academically challanged expecially since the hearing impaired is centered in this district. All kids needing help would benefit on both sides, what a great way to teach all kids to be more understanding and caring. Even at a fee, i'm sure many of kids would partake and the school benifit as well. Hopefully someone will consider this ideal.
I personally love ida schools! Mr. Buckley runs the elementary school with a firm yet caring hand. I have never been so comfortable with a school system. My boys are in the middle school now, and although there maybe room for change just a bit in there sports programs (I happened to be a believer of size dosen't matter, a kid should get a chance to prove himself not overlooked because of his size) Ida has been good to us! I would recommend our school to anyone who has had a bad experience with a school system!
I was a proud graduate of Ida Schools, I brought my children here from Toledo, believing I was bringing them into a better school system. I was extremely disappointed especially with the elementary school. The principal in my opinion is worthless, the teachers like to talk about the students to other parents, there is no privacy. The teachers think they are helping when they are not! There is no such thing as any kind of discipline in the elementary. I have a child with ADHD we have had minimal support from the schools, so if you need any extra help from the school, I do not advise this systm. After two years of struggling, I am finally getting help for my child in the middle school after a 6 month battle with teachers and etc. I do give thanks to the middle school psychologist and social worker for helping us out.
I think all the schools are great.They have great academic programs.I am a student and personally I think that all the teachers are very good .Thier schools sports are very good.The teachers make sher that bullies that hurt people will either get suspendid or kicked out for the rest of the year.The teachers are very good to thier students and respect what the students have to say.Thank you for your time.
School administration is too busy checking for parents signatures on daily task notebooks, and to my disappointment cannot read the notes parents leave for them. Good children are punished for normal talking and behavior, while bullies are rewarded because teachers are afraid, disruptive behavior and EI kids rule by intimadation, Academic programs are wrestling, football for boys, basketball,baseball, for girls and boys, volleyball and cheerleading for girls, which is the same families with no room for new people to the area Kids with high state test scores and IQ's have no outlet, other than science fair or spelling bees,
