This school is horrible. DON'T SEND YOUR CHILD HERE. This is a passage that my 6th grader wrote on one of her assignments..SOS...Mom I don't learn anything at all this school. This school is sad. This class is sad. They always play around. They aren't ready for the 7th grade. I don't want to go to the 7th grade and not know anything. I HATE THIS SCHOOL. I was very saddened to know my child felt this way. In addition the school is not appealing to the eye. The students curse and teachers have no control over their students. My fourth grader was also threatened by another student that they would bring a gun to school and shoot her. Never again will my children attend an IPS school.
