Overall, we've been incredibly pleased with this school. Our son is thriving here after a really rough kindergarten year at another NE elementary school which made us so unhappy we sold our house and moved into a different area of NE to gain opportunities for a better school. Teachers and other staff we've had experiences with at Irvington have been communicative, engaged and demonstrate deep caring towards the students and a deep interest in engaging families and students of color and those with lower incomes. (To be fair, we are a multi-racial family but our son is white and so are we, his parents, so our experience here is based on observation alone.) The Irvington family community is strong, fun and welcoming with a multitude of opportunities to meet one another. Our son is excelling academically, emotionally, and socially and while more diversity in the student body would always be welcome, I'm thankful every day that he goes to school with a multitude of students of color unlike other nearby elementary schools in NE that seem to have nearly completely white student bodies. I admit that going in I was a little hesitant given the lower GreatSchools score but I'd encourage any perspective parents to visit the school and talk with staff and parents before judging this school based on one arbitrary number. There really is more to this school than this score would suggest. I have NO regrets in switching our son to this school. I also know that the administration is actively seeking out opportunities to improve test scores across the board and help lift up students who have fallen behind, academically. Honestly, I tell people I think this school is a hidden gem and I've yet to personally hear from a parent who is unhappy at this school.
