I have had my daughter enrolled at this school from the first day they opened, and although there seems to be a slow pace to the improvements of the physical aspects of the facilities and organization, I commend the staff and teachers, and especially the administrators for prioritizing and seeking the safety of the students as their priority. Nothing happens overnight, and I have witnessed little by little the gradual improvements. I had some real hand wringing when I did not re-enroll my daughter in Crestwood elementary down the street, but the aspect of watching and developing her education from grade 3 all the way through high school, with smaller classes, and caring teachers has indeed sold me that I made the right decision. Most parents I have had discussions with feel they too made the right transition for their children becuase there is no limit to parent /teacher connectivity.
I agree. I am a former student here and when i moved on to high school, I realized I was really behind and having to take other classes to catch-up. If you want what's best for you child, DO NOT send them here.
I found out about IICSN from a friend and could not be happier with the education and after school programs offered. My son is in Kindergarten and his teacher goes the extra mile and is very committed to the students. I have seen the disrespect and awful behavior of some of the students. And I have seen the teacher and principal handle the situations. My son is very excited about his classes and it is a joy to see him blossom. The school is amazing. As far as overcrowding, the classes are full and on many days the teachers have help from parents. (instead of criticizing try to volunteer) We love this school
My oldest just started kindergarten this year at IICSN, and we are mostly happy with our choice. There are a few bugs in the dropping off/picking up routine, but I can see that my son's teacher is very committed, and the extra programs and classes that are offered can't be found at any other public school in the area. My son loves going to school and is learning a great deal. I can't ask for more than that.
I could not give a negative review for this school, even if I wanted to. I have searched for not just a school for my child, but a community . . . a home away from home, and IICSN is it. T My child's teachers pour their hearts into teaching and reaching my child - they really care about the kids . . . keeping them happy and safe. The principal does not give up on her students who face challengs. She doesn't jsut manage the community. She leads it. Dr. Malin is an innovator who has created a family of people that think outside of the box to reach into the minds and hearts of the kids. Every staff member that I have met pours their lives into the school making it the ideal place for my child. I haven't regretted my choice to enroll here.
Seeing the offensive/belittling remarks made below by 'parents' are very unjustified. The school is NOT a baby sitting service. I've sat in on classes and have seen the disrespect that these children have. I do NOT believe teachers teach that behavior...it does 'start in the home'. (Learn to spell, IICSN has only been around for 2 years). Does every parent think THEIR child is an angel? Do they give YOU attitude? What do think the teachers, staff, security and the principal go through...put yourself in their shoes. Chaotic? Watch transferring of classes in other schools? There is a NO TOLERANCE policy in place in the district could or did your child handle that?? All parents read and signed the rules just as I did. Remember what you sign! Parent : Fear for their safety ...It's a School of Choice...we don't live in a bubble; there will be some falling down, booboos and name calling (were you ever in school?)...their kids! Or maybe the in it for the money should figure out how to get a personal assistant paid for each of the 600 individual children so they have a body guard, etc. HELLO!
I removed my child from this school after repeated requests for his safety and well-being went unanswered. The principal is only concerned with the amount of money she receives per child and not the quality of their education.
I have to agree with the parent who submitted their opinion of this school below. The scholl is unorganized and overcrowded. I love most of the teachers and they seem to have their hands tied when it comes to certain things at the school. Some of the teachers seem to want to be friends and chums with the studentss and not take their place as being the teacher and the controller of the class. the students are rude and disrespectful (but that starts at home) The admin office doesnt seem to be fair in some situations. They seem to be in a chaotic state. The principle seems to be always in the clouds, she needs to come down to earth most times.
This school is unorganized, overcrowded, and the teachers seem frazzled and overworked. I worry about my child's safety every day. The administration is defensive and uncooperative. They are not living up to what they advertise on their website- the teachers don't seem to know what a project based curriculum is and Spanish is not offered at all grade levels. Everything seems very chaotic. They bit off more than they could chew.
