School Notes:

Intown School is a covenant, Christian school.  At least one parent of every applicant must be an active member of a Bible-believing church.  Our school requires heavy participation of parents inside and outside of the classroom, as well as monthly attendance of both parents to the Parent Meetings (held in the evenings).

I love Intown! I''ve been going since first grade(that was when they didn''t have a kindergarten) and I love it! All of the teachers are so very helpful and they have a real relationship with you. They care about more than just your grades.

I have had my four children at ICS since 2003. One is dyslexic, one has ADHD, one is a talented student and one is an average student. They ALL have had a wonderful experience, largely because of the very low teacher:student ratio and a philosophy of teaching that values the child as an individual and which inspires a true love for learning. History, language arts, social studies, and science are taught with an integrated, hands-on approach without textbooks -- it is NEVER boring! They have music, art, French, and PE every week. You will not find a school with more caring, hard-working teachers who truly invest their lives in their students. We love it!
