    "One size fits all is this school's motto and if your child does not fit their mold look out, they will be ostracized, talked about , and labeled by these teachers. From kindergarten to fourth grade my son was singled out and watched through out his time at this school. The teachers did not like him and his fourth grade teacher made sure my son's fourth grade year here was stressful and miserable. She watched him like a hawk and would write down every single action he had throughout the day. " he got up without permission" "he's going to the bathroom too much" "he's picking at his shoes" "he's sneezing a lot and I think it's on purpose and it's a distraction". And on an administrative level it's even worse. Our experience in his fourth grade year was so bad and traumatic we moved out of county to get him in a new school and since then he's flourishing and having such success it's amazing. Despite his labeling at ivy creek which was obviously wrong. Parents beware...they are a crct test score school, that's their bottom line and what they focus on"

    "This school has alot to be desired. There are huge discrepencies between teachers abilities and skills at every grade level. let me give you an example. In third grade, my first child was given homework every day and had a strict teacher who worked with kids who needed xtra work. My second child had little to no homework each day as this teacher stated they had enough work while they were in class. My child was then behind when attending 4th grade although she was an A-B student. This teacher was then allowed to follow and teach the same class of kids the next year. I realized this and wouldn't allow my child to have this teacher again. Some teachers would rather be your kids and your best friend. They offer focus classes and amazingly all of the teachers kids have been chosen to attend. I asked about the testing procedures and was told that it was a combination of tests yet the teachers and faculty couldnt be specific as to what was needed or what my child needed to do to qualify. Somehow the teachers kids who attended Ivy Creek all qualified. Finally you will be bombarded with requests for your cash from letters, to emails to texts with nothing pertaining to your child."

    "My child attended this school K-5. She was involved in activities and clubs every year. She did everything from sports, arts, music, and math club. She always felt safe and comfortable at this school. She is a good student without discipline problems so I never really got to know the principal or office staff. I volunteered at the school several times each and there always several parents at every event."

    "This school absolutely horrible! My family moved to GA one year ago and enrolled our 1st grade daughter in ICE...from day 1 we've had nothing but setbacks, disappointments and sheer ignorance from this institution. My daughter was enrolled in private school in our previous state and we decided to take a chance on public schools based on our realtor's recommendation. The staff here for the most part are incompetent; half of them are not trained in the subject area that they are required to teach (i.e. math). The teachers here do not send home agendas therefore as parents we have no idea what our children are learning on a daliy basis, so how can we assist them at home? The teachers send home subpar homework assignments, yet test the kids on completely different subject material(it would be nice to send home relevant homework). The teachers that we've been so unfortunate to have teach our child are completely clueless as educators and need to find new professions. It is now clearly evident why the state of Georgia ranks so low in comparison to the other states when it comes to public school education. Needless to say we will be returning to private schooling and I urge others to also"

    "The front office staff most definitely needs a class in social skills. People should be greeted and welcomed and asked how they can be helped. There are some very good teachers at the school but there are also some subpar ones that need to move on to a different profession. The young school counselor needs to do her job and make herself available when needed - not seek out issues that do not exist. The school also needs to have more activities for the younger children. 99% of the after school clubs are for 4th and 5th graders and children want to be involved in music and sports much younger than that. Needs an anti-bullying program. Needs a sports program instead of the existing PE class that most kids seem to dislike."
