My daughter has been a student at IPS for two years now. She absolutely loves it. The staff is fun and friendly and extremely professional. They have parent nights to show parents what the kids have been doing and they are very active in fundraisers. My daughters love for reading has soared since starting school there because of how emphasis they put on daily reading, AR tests, and the annual Scholastic Book Fairs. Her teachers have always been very open with us and come to us immediately if there is any issues or if she is in danger of falling behind. I have gone through many school districts and Citrus County has yielded the best results for my children. Many of my friends feel the same way.
