School Reviews

  • Recommended July 01, 2007 - I believe that this school really knows what they're doing. They're interested in what the children want and need and that is very important to me. As a former student at icard elementary I would most definitely recommend this school. Especially Michelle Huffman. [Teacher] She is a wonderful woman and deserves an award. She was and is the best teacher I have ever had. - Morgan - Posted by Student/Alumni
