IBES has a great staff who works hard to care for student needs both academically and emotionally! We have high school spirit and character is modeled. The "Kids at Hope" philosophy ensures that all children are capable of success!

My daughter just started at Indian Bend. Her reading scores have already improved in the short time she has been there. Her teacher is helping her a lot. She likes the fact that she is started to read every where she goes. She now likes to read on her own. Indian Bend has been good for her.

maybe some of you that have a complaint about IB should learn how to spell and properly put sentences together. That could be a reason why your children are having a hard time with learning how to spell words and succeed.

Indian Bend is the worse school you could send your kids to. My child is in Kindgarten and the teachers do not have the patience. My son was getting beat up at school and for letting the teacher know he got in trouble for tattle telling. He already in kindergarten is coming home and saying he doesn't ...  Read more
