Choice school of Bigotry and teaches students how to manipulate laws. This school has successfully proven self-centered interests of the dark days of segregation and disrespect of the law. Not a school to have your children attend.

Posted July 25, 2010

Life is all about choices. Good ones. Bad ones. Therefore my husband & I CHOOSE to take part in ALL THAT WE CAN with our children at IAHS & IAC. People who do not think that these schools are very GOOD schools clearly have not associated with any other school systems! There are so many other schools in this state and other states that are very much BELOW STANDARD! I am PROUD that my children can get a very good education in Itawamba Co. BUT IT IS WHAT PARENTS TEACH THEIR CHILDREN AS WELL AS THE SCHOOL! We were involved when our 9 y/o son was screened at IAC this past yr & was found to be partially dyslexic. It is the EFFORT that ALL INVOLVED PUT INTO something that makes it or breaks it. If you are not HELPING you may be HINDERING!

This school is discriminatory and dishonors itself by excluding students. Clearly a school that is not focused on larger society and believes that a moral compass is only set by people THEY believe are correct. Do unto others does NOT apply here.

My kid had learning problems and instead of giving care to this or suggesting other options they started to discriminating my son. He couldnt go to a lot of classes, because 'he would not keep up with the other students'. I asked for a conversation about this situation and it took me 2 (!!) months to get an appointment. I took him off of this school. Its not only a lack of instruments they have on this school, but mainly a lack of interest in students.
