Elisa Luna has turned this school around for the better!! Ms. Brace is also an asset! My children have attended Inskip since kindergarten and although (now sixth and fifth grade!) they are leaving, we hold fond memories of Inskip elementary.

I volunteered to help in the class. My husband and I both joined the PTO. I mentioned at the beginning of the year that my son was suppose to be tested for learning disabilties. It is now almost Feb. and I have yet to hear anything about the PTO, no awards ceremonies, only report card night where his teacher said he knows everything and than dismissed us. I am still waiting to hear results of testing. The teacher is always frustated by his behavior. And I have never gotten to help out at all. No one seems to know whats going on. Other schools keep parents much more informed. Thinking about looking into a transfer. Very disappointed.

This is my daughter's first year at Inskip. We are not from the Knoxville area and I have to say I was a little nervous about her starting little o Inskip. I have been more than pleased with Inskip. All of the staff (not just her homeroom teacher) have been wonderful to my daughter and our family. You could not find a more loving, caring staff anywhere. Miss Gina and her staff at Kids Place have been great also...thanks!

Unfortunately, my children no longer attend Inskip since we moved this year. After experiencing just six weeks at a new Knox county school (which boasts to be one of the county's finest), I can honestly tell any parent that 'nice' area neighborhoods and money is not what makes a good school. Inskip strongly encourages parental involvement with each class. My children's teachers always kept the lines of communication open, and we were not only made feel like our presence was accepted, but also appreciated as well. The teachers there really seem to pay attention to the needs of the individual child. They realize that one of the greatest assets they can give to each child is confidence, and they work tirelessly to provide it. Kudos to Elisa Luna and the entire staff for making Inskip Elementary a school that I am proud to say my children were once a part of!

The school facilities are subpar in comparison to other Knox County Schools. My son 'bench marked' for Kindergarten in December and the rest of the year he pretty much was just babysat while the rest of the class caught up.

I have been very impressed with the camraderie and cohesiveness of the teaching staff at Inskip. The teachers seem to always remain positive and enthusiastic about their jobs despite the misbehaviors that can arise. I believe the teachers at Inskip give 200% of their being to the students. I do worry that some grade levels recieve more unnecessary pressure than others and are sometimes blamed (for a lack of better word) for low test results. These teachers are doing everything possible!

My son is in the 5th grade at Inskip. His teachers make learning fun and exciting. He began Kindergarten at Inskip and also goes to 'Kids Place' (after school Care). They are a great bunch of people, too. You could not have hand picked a better group of teachers/workers if you had tried. And the principal is wonderful. She is soooo full of energy, love, and compassion for these kids. I am so thankful that my son and my grandsons are able to have such good educational influences. Inskip teachers are the best!

My daughter has attended Inskip for about four years. I think the teachers are 'GREAT'. They really care about my child & her education. She loves it as well. If I had to put Inskip Elem. on a scale between 1 & 10. I'd give it a big 10. No Question.

I am very please with the way things are going this year for Inskip Elementary. The new principal is an outstanding person, and provides discipline, as well as good instruction for the teachers as well as the children. She is always willing to work with any level of responsibility. The parents need to be more involved, as well as teaching their children some common respect. The administration cannot maintain all of this. Parents need to be responsible for their children and how they act outside of the home. Inskip is looking at a renovation soon and I think all parents will be satisfied in the coming up years. I hope Inskip continues to improve, and the children as well. Teachers are doing an outstanding job! Keep it up!

I love Inskip! It has such a warm and inviting atmosphere, although it's charm cannot be seen from the outside of the building. The entire staff makes the school the amazing place that it is. Most of the teachers are outstanding; they are completely devoted to giving the kids all the care and opportunities they deserve. The level of education is continually improving, and I am very excited about the positive changes that have been made since the current principal arrived. Parent involvement is very low, but it seems to be slowly improving.

Wow! Inskip looks like a totally different school. The atmosphere is so inviting. I think the teachers do an outstanding job and work very hard to ensure that the kids learn to their maximum potential. My child is in 5th grade this year and loves her teacher! She has helped my child improve her writing abilities immensely. She also enjoys learning, because her teacher is constantly planning creative activities for the class.

I believe the kids at Inskip are better behaved this year compared to the past. However, I do believe the students need to work on showing respect to their teachers. PARENTS need to help with this. Teachers shouldn't have to be the sole disciplinarians. By the way, Mrs. Masters is an outstanding teacher. My child informs me about the creative activities she puts together for them. I appreciate all of her dedication and hard work.

The school is okay but I believe it needs a lot of improvement in parking for parent children programs, better organized events, most students that attend the school are very mouthy and have no respect for teachers or their peers.
