Ivanhoe Elementary School Reviews
The broad range of extracurricular activities is only shadowed by the excellence of the staff and students experiences here. All incredible and unforgettable.
Ivanhoe is located in an area of LA that is one of the safest in the city. The school has locked off entry when in session and the access to get in to the school is strictly monitored by staff and no one can enter through gates without permission from the front desk. The personal safety is outstanding. And the health resources are abundant for all students and in times of injury they have notified us immediately and then we are informed as to whether we need to come in, visit or take our child from school for medical attention if needed. I really love how safe and equipped Ivanhoe is from medical to earthquake preparedness to an overall commitment from the entire administration to the safety of all the students attending here.
There are too many to mention here, but all the after school programs and "After The Bell" classes actually pull the majority of the students in because of how fun and engaging they can be. From acting to chess to sports and reading they have it all.
We love this school for it's unique ability to reach each student on an individual level. The teachers have such an incredible report with our child and others I believe all us parents know this and feel lucky to be involved at Ivanhoe. Our time at Ivanhoe continues to provide a stellar education for our son but also lifetime of memories that go above the average schools friends of ours tell us about and when we were young as well. The friends we have made and our boy has made I really believe will be for a long time. Also the generations of parents who have gone here in my experience have remained in contact as well as planting their roots here in Silver Lake. Ivanhoe is the heart of our town.
All of the teachers our son has had have been exceptional and have gone way above and beyond to educate him and his classmates and now lifelong friends. The staff all exude love of the students and love of the school including the neighborhood we all live, plus being in such a large city, that passion is beyond rare. The classes are so creative and engaging that our child raves about what he does everyday, which is also rare. In general, there isn't enough one can say to really capture the excellence of Ivanhoe and it's teachers, principal and also the parents and kids attending here. We actually bought a home just so our younger son will have the same experience our older one is having now at Ivanhoe.
