What do you like best about attending your school?
I love that the teachers are very supportive, kind and help you through tough times. I love that we go on excursions and cool adventures. We learn how to become great students, friends and humans. With a kind community and amazing teachers, it’s easy to love, learn and be kind.
What is the biggest benefit to your child in attending his/her school?
IPS has been an incredible middle school for our daughter to develop as a learner and as a person. The curriculum is thoughtful, relevant and engaging. The small class sizes and dedicated teachers have developed her strengths and offered support when needed.The outdoor education trips are truly amazing!
What is the most rewarding part of your job/workplace?
The most rewarding part of teaching at IPS is facilitating the experiential and authentic learning that takes place every day. I especially love to see when my students gain a deeper understanding of what we are learning by connecting ideas and then transferring them to their own lives.
