Praise from Our Parents
“My daughter attends IPA and what I love most about the school is how much her teachers care about her success. Sometimes when she loses motivation, there is always a teacher who encourages her and reminds her of her abilities. Unlike her large school in Gwinnett, her teachers at IPA do not accept failure or low expectations of their students. My daughter is not just another student at IPA. Her teachers know who she is as a person and that makes me as a parent feel like she is in the right place!”
“I am thoroughly happy and very satisfied with this school. My daughter is learning far beyond the normal GC curriculum. She feels very safe at school and looks forward to going each and everyday. I love how you can be a part of your child’s education as well as, being encouraged to volunteer at events. Ivy Prep gives you a top notch private school type of education for FREE!!!! The environment is small and your child is known by her name. You are doing your daughter an injustice by NOT sending her to this school. Ivy Prep offers an amazing learning environment like no other.”
“My daughter loves IPA and so do I. This is her first year here, and I must say that I am pleased. I took a gamble pulling her from her previous school, but I have found a school where she is loved for who she is yet pushed to be a better her. I love, love, love her teacher!”
