Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

By all measures...testing, future college entry, respect of students...the teachers would be judged very effective.

Amount of homework: no rating

It varies from grades 5-8, but I don't often hear comments about too much homework. We have many students in sports, and the teachers take that into consideration.


Develops character: Strongly agree

There is a monthly assembly that focuses on students of the month and random acts of kindness. Much time is devoted to working with students to develop their personal work ethic and interpersonal skills.

I have no idea where the other people posting are getting their information, but Indian River School has test results that are higher than the State average in a State that always comes in first or second in the nation for testing. The position in the State this fall was closer to 55 out of 78. Our most recent winter testing showed that IEP students are making higher than average progress in their individual programs. As a school with over 20% of the students on IEP's or 504 plans, our testing three times a year shows steady gains for all students. It is an excellent school, and it is a shame that a few disgruntled individuals can post whatever they please and ruin the school's reputation and cause potential homeowners to move elsewhere. I live in the district and am proud to support the schools.

This is one of the the worst schools in the state. Just look at the data. A little research and you'll see. If your kid is on an IEP good luck. If your not related or have a long history in the town, they will not work with you. They seem to think that putting a kid in isolation for 2 weeks straight is an OK treatment. If you have other options to send your kid else where, I highly recommend doing so.

There's a reason why this school is rated #73 out of the 78 schools in this state. It's a horrible school. Look it up. The info is easily out there.

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!
