The size of ICA really makes the school great. We are small enough that the teachers at ICA are able take the time to get to know their students and make sure that the students are excelling. The teachers care about each and everyone of their students. Students also get the chance to become really close with all of the classmates. Classmates and teachers feel like family. Another element that makes ICA so great is that the school consists from kindergarten to 12th grade. This allows for younger students to look up to the older students as well as gives older students the opportunity to work with younger students. There are several occasions when the older students assist younger students in different activities such as PE class or doing arts and crafts. Overall ICA is a great school to be at no matter what age a student is.

We have enjoyed the years we have been at ICA. Their KP and K programs are wonderful! The KP program is what kept us coming back! You should check it out!
The teachers are absolutely amazing. They are definitely the reason that I am who I am today. The building itself isn't that great, as it has leaky ceilings and is always cold.
