Grateful to: Teacher
November 23, 2015
We are so eternally grateful to many of the staff, but especially the first grade teachers that were a gifted group of enthusiastic and loving educators at Ironton Elementary...especially Miranda Perloff. We heard great things about Parkland School District, but now we get it. We understand why Parkland is special. From the stories our kids told us to the joy we saw on their faces as they quickly developed a better understanding of the written word - Mrs. Perloff brought so much enthusiasm, joy, and warmth to her classroom. Her love for reading, books, learning, and her adoring students transformed our children's lives forever. Thank you especially to Mrs. Perloff, but also to Kutteroff, and Macia. The three of you are a stellar example of teachers who appear to love their kids, their jobs, and are making a difference one child at a time.

Ironton reminds me of my elementary school, a "country" school where most of the families are middle class, hard working people. Not rich, not poor, in the middle. The faculty and staff are great and there is a real community supporting the school. We have two more years. The principal, Mrs Smith,is retiring this year. It will be very difficult to replace her, hopefully they can find someone as caring and as dedicated.

I loved going here! It's a gorgeous school where learning is a number one priority. A lovely location as well. Overall, a fantastic school that is part of a very large, successful school district!

Excellent teachers, excellent principal!! My children attended Ironton many years back and I attribute their success to the base education they received at Ironton. Those are the most important years.

My daughter has attended Ironton since Kindergarten and is now entering her last year in Ironton Elem. this September 2009. I can only say that I've been very pleased with Ironton, back when the wonderful Mr. Houck was principal, and subsequently followed by Mrs. Smith who has been an excellent principal since Mr. Houck retired. Ironton Elem. has offered my daughter an exceptional education, mostly evident by the Advanced scores she continually gets on her assessments and PSSA's (I take credit as her parent, as well!), but also because of the helpful staff in the office, the caring nurse's staff, the compassionate para-educators, the great specialists and everyone who has contributed to helping Ironton become the great school that it is.

We feel that the academic programs in this school district is much better than some of the other surrounding schools. Music, art, and sports are part of this elementary school's curriculum. There have been several special events that this school has done for families after school hours. We have found that there is a strong communication highway between the parents and the teachers. The teachers are quick to respond to questions. The parents appreciate the teachers and it shows at Ironton. The staff at Ironton have a strong dedication to the families.
