School Reviews

I am a proud alumnus and have now sent my daughter to IJP since preschool. The combination of high academic standards, extracurricular activities and teachings of the Christian faith are well worth the price. IJP graduates students with a strong academic foundation and an unmatched moral compass. Make IJP your choice for your children!
