    "The individual teachers are great, but unless you live in one of the affluent neighborhoods and have a limitless cash flow to send to this school, your child will be left out of many activities. I appreciate that they offer so many fun and exciting experiences, but when your child comes home every day asking for money for this fundraiser and this cause, it gets ridiculous. In this era of struggling to put food on the table, I can't send in $80 every other week for the latest (and lamest) fundraisers. Does that mean my young children come home in tears because they sit in study hall while other kids go to a carnival outside? Yes it does. Does this school care? No. It's all about the money. I'm sure the wealthier families love this school, but I don't appreciate how they make my children feel like second-rate citizens."

    "We love ICES!!!! My daughter has attended for three years now and have nothing negative to say. If you had a bad experience, it's probably because you handled it with the wrong attitude. You get out what you put in. STOP your complaining."

    "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."
