School Reviews

When my children start 10th grade in September, I will have been a parent of ISW students going on 10 years. That is a long time to get to know a school and community of educators! I must say that in this new error of COVID-19, I am extremely impressed at the continuity in learning to take place. ISW teachers and administrators did not miss a beat! I know my kids are still full-on learning, while also given the space to adjust to these new circumstances. We have been very impressed with the high school teachers and curriculum and have no doubt that our children will be academically and mentally ready for a great college experience in a few years. Best of all, they absolutely love their school. The surroundings are stunning, and the warmth, and kindness of the school's staff is palpable.
