I love this school and my daughter is doing great. Had a little problem with my daughter at first of year but her teacher worked with me and her and now everything is fine. Great teachers and my daughter likes it very much.

My son and I love this school for many reasons but mostly the awesome and dedicated teachers and staff. Dr.Dodge runs a tight ship but in a kind and loving manner. I feel that the entire faculty loves every child there and do their very best to make sure the kids receive the best education.

Hard working teachers who go over & beyond for the children. The teacher are there late at night and on week-ends. We try our best to make sure the students achieve at the highest level. Hard working janitors who make sure the school is clean everyday. They are also very helpful to help the teacher to do anything that needs to be done. Lots of great people work at the school & the way that budgets are today the school always struggle with the items that the teacher & school need. Our Principal & Vice Principal are fair to all employees & they make our working environment a wonderful place to work.

SIS offers the strongest education in Sevier County. Well mannered students, great leadership, teachers who enjoy teaching and principals that are actively involved in the school and with the students.

As a teacher who has had these 'looping' students in upper grades, I can contribute a totally different perspective to looping. These students find the transition to middle school more difficult, have a hard time getting along with others, and do not seem to be as confident as their peers.

This school offers a great 'looping' program run by Mrs. Bogart. Unfortunately, the school doesn't encourage more of these programs. The teacher has the class for 3 years, and it is astounding... these children are easily identified by teachers in upper grade levels because they excel in all aspects of their lives. It is a wonderful program that anyone who has had a children in this would agree it makes a huge difference in these children's lives. I would strongly encourage parents to try to get their child in this 'looping' program as it is limited to the normal number of students in a class. Mrs. Bogart deserves Teacher of the Year every year!
