We have a first grader at IES and next year we will have her in 2nd and a kindergartener. We love the school, staff and faculty. They're great at being in touch and on top of things. They've done such an amazing job of nurturing our oldest in a way that not only is she learning, but she is loving it! Motivating her to go to school is never a problem. Enrichment programs keep things novel and we are constantly impressed by the connection she has to so many staff and faculty. She may not be in their class or under their instruction, but if we see them out, it's like she's a family member to them. Everything they do is setting her up for success not just academically, but also for life!

My family actually moved out of the district, specifically so that we could get away from this school. The teachers may care, but the administration is absolutely horrible. No one knows what anyone else is doing. My son had an IEP and the administrators didn't even know who was in charge within their own school. And if your child has allergies, forget it, they will give you a hard time about everything!

Irmo Elementary used to be an excellent school. However, reading is now taught with almost no emphasis on phonics. The number of kids in "reading recovery" is skyrocketing because of this. The school is very standardized testing focused. This year (2013-2014), many teachers have been forced to teach grades they are unfamiliar with/uncomfortable with after teaching their specific grades for many, many years. Combined with the change to Common Core Standards, I see this school going downhill fast. Our family will be moving and seeking better education elsewhere in the area.

We just moved to the area and my children have been in the district for almost 5mos. And compared to the pennsylvania schools that we're coming from irmo h.S & elem. Are so much more advanced in academics, sports, and college prep (h.S) than the pa schools are!!! both of my children have shown signifigant improvement academically and the support from the teachers has been great also. Keep up the good work irmo staff & students!!! way to go irmo!!!

Excellent environment for my children. The teachers are very hard working, caring and effective at their job. The school makes extraordinary use of technology and parent involvement is overwheming. This school is a gem!

The teachers at Irmo Elementary are among the best in the state. After all, Irmo has the South Carolina Teacher of the Year. My child has attended Irmo for the past 4 years. The love, support, and guidance he has received is pheomenal. Go IRMO!
