teachers make learning fun for the students and take time to interact with them
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 21, 2009

IES is the best school in the world! The principal is very helpful and concerned for all of the students. She greets them each morning and makes them feel welcomed. The teachers encourage the students to do their very best. The students are respectful to each other. I can think of no better place for a young child to learn!

We have had nothing but trouble from this school. The principle does nothing about the problems and we've even had other parents tell us the teacher is mean to our daughter. The principle continues to not believe any of it and never investigates. We've even tried to file a police report. It's a great school only for those with lots of money and political connections.

Iuka elementary provides the necessary components in education with excellent academic programs, physical education, music, art, and encouraging parental involvement. Iuka elementary offers the opportunities to help students expand on their current knowledge and they are on the same plateau as larger schools in major cities. My daughter enrolled in the school system this school year after attending school in a larger city and the curriculm was amazing. The curriculm not only challenged her current knowledge, but provided new experiences.
