The school used to be great and very welcoming, but after the new CEO took over in 2022 everything changed. The environment is completely different now. The staff is not treated well by administration at both the elementary building and corporate level which has caused good teachers to leave. The staff turn over rate is high and leads to inconsistence for the students. I would not send my children here.
I love this school. The environment is very warm and welcoming, if there are bullies, they're dealt with quickly, and the staff are amazing people that actually care.
When I first moved to Irvington I was a little nervous but all the teachers and some students made me feel welcome. The teachers that are there are incredible. I appreciate all of them helping me when I need it.
The staff were attentive and good, but as for the student body. As from my experience you'll meet some interesting people there but it has become the dumping ground for some problem kids of other districts. That said, they were given the time and attention needed to do well. Other than that it was pretty good.
Have 2 grandchildren attending school since Kindergarten. 1 is a Junior and 1 is 7th grade. School is top notch in education and social skills. Could use more funding for sports but I would not hesitate to recommend. Top notch!
I have been here all four years, and I can honestly say I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Sure we don't have the best school, or resources to get certain things, but the teachers and staff here make it worth it. They get us ready for college and the real world and there is nothing more I can ask for.
I liked that the school was smaller and had a decent amount of teachers. I think that aloud for a lot of student to teacher interaction. I would like to see them put more classes in for different majors.
The school has had some bumps in the road, but the teachers care and the student to teacher ratio is pretty low. There just isn't a whole lot of money in being a charter school, so the school itself doesn't look like much.
This is the only high school I have ever been to, but the staff have helped me immensely. I have struggled with my behaviour my whole life and the faculty have been very understanding. I can only speak for myself, but I completely recommend this school!
Irvington was a great school for me. Enrolled from Kindergarten to grade 12, I honestly didn't have a need or want to leave. The teachers and staff definitely made you feel at home. As a freshman in college, I still have close bonds with some of my teachers. They do not see students as numbers and make sure every student is getting the necessary attention they need to succeed. I recommend this school to all types of students because this environment fits all, socially and academically.
You can have one on one aces to your teachers and a small environment.I have been at Irvington since 5th grade and I love it. Everyone is friendly and even if your New you can always meet new friends.Tutoring is offered daily .Parents are able to communicate with the teachers.
Well, when I started at this school in Kindergarten it was a decent school nut now it has gotten less and less productive. They teachers are not very involved, there's almost no diversity with the classes. The school has no funding and I think that is part of the problem.
This school has great intentions, but does not carry them out well. The lunch and breakfast program slowly got worse as I attended. The athletic program is close to nothing. They require uniforms. The teachers are dedicate to their jobs and certainly love what they do, but with little to no funding doing their jobs can be quite difficult. Overall the school wants the students to succeed, but the support they receive is minimal.
I pretty much know that I'll always be safe at Irvington.
We have many varieties of extracurricular(s) at IPA such as basketball, baseball, pokemon club, writer's inc, and many more.
Overall, Irvington is the best school I've been to. We've taken college tours, met very friendly people, talked with college mentors, were able to take college courses for free, and we're a friendly environment.
I love Irvington. The school has taught me about taxes, financial responsibility, and so much more.
