I teach PK-4 at ILS and have a son in 7th grade. I LOVE my school. The preschool helps students develop a love for learning with an active, energetic classroom. The middle school challenges students in every subject. Saxon Math is taught according to the student's level so that advanced students can finish algebra in 8th grade. Spanish is offered for grades K through 8. The school is constantly working on improving technology and instruction. Most importantly, we take care of kids and families and help them become more connected to Christ.
