My school could be a more sensitive about my child's anxiety. There is a need in the school to address Executive Function Deficits.

I think the school does a great job at focusing more on the academic than the social aspects of school. I know of other schools that have many concerts involving the whole grade and they will pull kids out of class to practice. That, in my opinion, is important time when they should be learning, not learning a song for a concert. I would rather see less concerts and more A's on my daughter's report card. The only thing I think the school could improve on is letting the parents know what the kids are learning at school as my daughter seems to almost never have any homework other than math homework.

The Indian River (middle) School has so far been a good experience for my daughter. The sports programs are great (lacking in track), the coaches are commited and dependable. The fact that it's part of the Space program (can't remember the exact title, sorry) is exceptional and has certainly added to her experiences. There are no extra language courses, unfortunately, as I'm a strong supporter of early language development. Over all, she's been academically challenged and excited!
