The leadership provided by Principal Harrison is remarkable. He is so involved with everything that goes on at that school. He gives a personal touch to it all. The teachers are first rate. The staff incredibly friendly and helpful from the office staff, maintenance and environmental services. The PTO is incredibly giving and parent involvement is amazing at Isbister.

If ever a school and it's staff felt like an extension of home and family, it is Isbister Elementary. This is true from the principal to the part-time lunch room attendants. My children have never had an in school experience that was not pleasant.

Both my grandchildren attend Isbister. From the times I have been to school functions I have seen a very involved staff and happy children. When students like their surroundings, it makes it easier and more fun to learn. Isbister is a first rate school.

This is a school that has such a committment to educating our kidswith the highest standards. More importantly I have never seen a staff, from the principle to the janitor care so much about our kids. With all the cuts to our school we could truely use the funding to give our kids the experience of not only loving to learn but loving there school and others!

My daughter just 'graduated' from 5th grade having attended since Kindergarten. I'm very confident that she is ready for middle school. Isbister provided great after school activities- book fairs, ice cream socials, 'movie nights' the school spirit store at lunch time, even a great scout program! The principal is very approachable as well as the office staff. Teachers are focused and on target... just look at the MEAP scores! This school is clean, efficient and truly is a friendly and caring place to learn for the lucky students attending. I was an 'involved' parent and saw growth in my daughter (and son - now 18), each year; they truly inspiried confidence. (I see more parking is being added for the new year - nice!)

I have 3 kids at Isbister. The quality of education is excellent. The staff is outstanding. The dirt road access and lack of parking are a minus, but the education is top notch. There are lots of opportunities for parent involvement (PTO, fund raising, classroom help, art enrichment, motor moms, etc.) and many after school programs. We have been happy with Isbister.
