School Reviews

  • Recommended August 14, 2014 - Isabella is one of the greatest small country schools in the state. The atmosphere is very laid-back and the staff is very friendly. I went to Isabella myself as well as my children and many other family members. We love it and would not consider attending any other school in the county! - Posted by Student/Alumni
