This is our first year at Intown and it has made such an impact on our entire family. We came from a large public school district and the transition has been wonderful. At Intown, my kids love learning and love school again. We also found that public school keeps parents at arm's length for everything other than PTA fundraising, but at Intown parents are truly involved in the education and Intown is your partner in educating your kids. The monthly parent meetings not only keep us informed about everything that is going on with our kids, but it builds a genuine sense of community that we thought we'd find in public school, but didn't. We couldn't be happier with our experiences at Intown!

Coming from a large public elementary school, the difference that Intown has made on my boys is like comparing `Night and Day`. In public school, the boys came home every day unhappy and angry at any little thing. From day one at Intown, the boys have been all smiles and can`t wait to tell me what they learned at school that day. When your kids are in a good environment, they love to learn and they will want to freely share that information with you. Unlike public schools, Intown doesn't waste time with constant MAP standardized testing, which means Intown teachers have a lot more time to focus on the lessons and spend less time "teaching to the test". And as a neuroscientist, I`m thrilled with the curriculum at Intown, specifically, the emphasis on phonics and fine motor skills (e.g. cursive writing), which are proven to teach methods for young developing brains. I am so glad that we made the switch from public to Intown! Not only are my boys enjoying school, but they are catching up from their COVID learning losses in public school. Intown has truly been a blessing for our family! I highly recommend it to all parents!

I'm confident we chose the best source of excellent education. Our Son started ICS in kindergarten and is in 5th grade with an enthusiastic plan to graduate ICS in the 8th grade.

I like the devotionals, cursive writing, and how you learn about different countries and get a passport for each one. I like the Chick-Fil-A on Wednesdays. I like the recess, too!

I am new to Intown and have found the community to be exceptionally welcoming and caring! As a Christian educator for the past 15 years, I can honestly say that the children are taught not just content, but how to critically think about that content and apply it to the real world around them. The staff are committed to their faith, to nurturing children across academic, social, and spiritual fronts, and to intentionally connecting the material in a holistic way. The families are eager to connect and really be that village for one another. If you're looking for an environment that is authentically Christ-centered and well-rounded, with an average class size of 10 students, then we invite you to come tour with us and see what a difference an Intown education can make to your family.

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!
