Ivan Green is quite diverse in all areas. It is a culturally, socially and academically diverse school. The teachers are loving and caring. They bond well with students and communicate well with parents. The new principal is full of enthusiasm and runs a well rounded school. I am happy to be part of this school and sad it only goes to second grade. This will be my daughter's last year here. :-(

I am very impressed with Ivan Green. My grandaughter is in the 2nd grade and her K, 1 and 2nd grade teachers have all been awesome. She has learned SO much! All the teachers, office staff - everyone! is helpful, caring and friendly. It will be sad when she has to go to a different school next year, for 3rd grade. I hope her experiences there will be as positive. I rate Ivan Green five star ***** school!

Principal Zito is very involved with the students. She has organized a wonderful K-2 school with tons of parental involvement. Music, physical education, computers, library are all well run. One disappointment is that the children only get 10 minutes of recess per day. Plenty of help for slower learners, very little to no help for the gifted and talented.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
