Open Quote We had a kid start there this year and it's been great so far (kindergarden). Our boy is coming home with a very reasonable amount of effective homework, and he's happy every day. He's performing well there, has positive experiences with his classmates and his teacher. The communication from the school to the parents is fantastic. The carline is efficient, equal to another school another child of ours is going to. The 4th grader we have going a different school, one very highly ranked in AZ, is struggling in a particular area. He has been for a while and the school has zero resources in place to help him with it. They literally don't help him anymore than just the normal process that every child gets whether they are struggling in a particular area or not. Because of that, and how it compares with Irving and all the free turoring and resources that are available there, we are strongly considering switching him to Irving. Nothing to complain about at Irving from this parent! Close Quote

Open Quote All I have to say is one thing...do NOT take your child to Irving. I am not sure what has happened in the last couple of years but the school and principal has gone WAY downhill. Principal Penny does not care for her students and safety is a MAJOR concern. Take your child far, far away from here. Close Quote

Open Quote The staff at Irving cares about their students. I have seen many occasions where teachers have gone above and beyond their call of duty to ensure success for their students. People greet each other in a friendly manner on campus. Irving has a real neighborhood feel to it. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
