As a parent at ICS, I'm delighted with the academic program (including the Spanish immersion program, which is what originally attracted us to the school), and especially the outstanding music and art instruction. I also really like the emphasis on world studies/multiculturalism. The teachers are really excellent, and both teachers and administration in general are very responsive to parents' input. Most of the ICS school board members are parents of children at the school, so there's a high level of commitment. There is a really high level of parent involvment, with the PTA and with board committees (for example, Diversity, Development, Facilities, Curriculum, and others).
My daughter went here and I found the school to be really lacking in leadership and organization. I found that they put everything on to the parents and did very little. I pulled my daughter out and put her in a private K after she was constantly abused by other students. There is no diversity in this school.
I would like to see more diversity. The school is a great place for your children to learn. The teacher are great. Child started in kindergarden when school first open. Hopefully she will still be there at least to eight grade. Great job ICS
The school has a great spanish program. My child started at kindergarden and is now in first grade. We love the school!
