We loved this school and are sad to be leaving. After 4 years here with my oldest and a year with our second I wish we could pack it up and take it with us in our move. The school is still experiencing some growing pains but is overall a great school. My oldest just finished last year and started high
... Read more school. She is so far ahead of her peers and has been placed in almost all AP classes this year. My only wish is that they would expand into high school. After leaving for high school all the area high schools just seem mediocre. I wish them the best and hope the other schools in the area follow their example. Read less

We love this school. The size, the teachers, and especially the principle and staff. My daughter went from average to a's and b's. The first year was tough since she missed so much in her previous school but now she has caught up. When her grades started to slip we got a call (yes they called us)

This is truly the "gem" in the San Fernando Valley. We were a little nervous at first because we pulled our son out of a great school after 4th grade. We didn't feel the curriculum was challenging enough and the class size kept expanding. Ivy is a small and very personal school - you get the feeling
... Read more that all of the amazing staff knows each kid (and we have only been there 8 days). The class size is wonderful - 18 to 20 vs the 40 that we came from. Our last school was so focused on "teaching to the test" that if you have a child that is very bright, they seem to get stuck in a rut and not learn anything past his/her current grade level. Ivy isn't like this - they can excel way beyond their grade level and really feel like they have accomplished a great deal when doing so. This is not the typical school - there isn't a big yard and the classrooms don't have any windows. This school is designed for children to get an amazing education and to prepare them for future education. The children are all very respectful and look eager to learn and Ivy provides all of the necessary tools for each student to become a success. Read less

We just culminated from 5th grade at IBA and are moving in to 6th. We are so lucky and grateful to have found this school. The emphasis is on developing good work habits and on the kids striving for excellence. The way this program works leads the children to work smart, hard and to want to do well
... Read more in school. My daughter check her grades weekly and has confronted the teachers when she felt as though the teachers had entered in a wrong grade. The teachers and faulty encourage that and it has taught my daughter to stand up for her own rights and not be afraid to go after what she feels is right. I can not say enough good things about the school. Read less

its a horrible school theres bullies and the teachers are biased, insensitive, and dont care about thier students. All they want is their pay check. Sence the school is so small the kids pick on you for fun and entertainment. The school does not have an indoor place to eat so they sit out side and theres
... Read more not enough tables so the kids sit on the ground next to the freeway! The kids swear even the 5th graders. One kidS said to a teacher "F*** you you B****" and the school did NOTHING about it. One of the straight A studentS is transfering out to go to Van Nuys Middle School. Anything is better than this horible school. Read less

The teachers at IBA are both knowledgeable and enthusiastic. They set high expectations and the children strive to meet those goals. Excellence, not mediocracy, is the focus here. The English teacher builds true readers and writers and the social studies teacher makes history come alive. The teachers

Every school is struggling to preserve and maintain the quality of their program. IBA is no different in that aspect. One of the clear differences that sets IBA apart from others is the decision making process. IBA understands that classroom instruction should benefit from each decision. As a teacher

This is our second year at IVYBound Academy and I feel so blessed to have found this small diamond of a school for my girls. The teachers are excited to be there and they teach with such pride and motivation. Because of the size, the kids do not get forgotten and all the teachers know all of the students.

My daughter just finished up her first year at Ivy Bound and she loves this school. The principal, teachers, and the entire staff really take great pride in this school and it shows. The curriculum is vigorous and parents and kids are held to a high standard to ensure their success. This is not your
... Read more typical public school and goes against every stereotype of what public schools have become. There is zero tolerance for bullying and I was very happy how they handlesd a situation when it came up. The principal is amazing and inspiring and makes every child feel like they matter. Even with all of the rigorous school work, my daughter did not want to be off for summer vacation...now that's a testament to a great school! Read less

Our daughter started 5th grade this year and this is her first year out of private school. I must say that there is nothing but great things I have to say about this school. Yes it's not for every child they really do focus education and children can not misbehave. It really feels like a private school.
... Read more The teachers are young and very easy to relate to. Highly academic so if you want your child to be really challenged than this is the school. They do have tons of homework and project so it can be hard at times. My child is getting a private school education for free.. Read less
