    "My children have been attending Irving since pre-k, and their scores exceed the average. As an "affluent" parent, I feel that the school is growing and continues to work towards meeting the needs of the students. I am an involved parent, and I feel that my ideas and concerns are welcomed by the administration."

    "I am a homeowner in the Tri/Taylor neighborhood where Irving is located. Tri/Taylor is comprised of homeowners and college student renters who attend nearby U of I Circle Campus. My daughter attended Irving from 1rst to 3rd and I was very involved as a parent volunteer and member of the LSC for one year. Only a handful of Tri/Taylor parents send their children to the school and while the neighborhood is affluent, 90% of the students attending Irving qualify for the Federal Free Lunch Program. While I very much respected my daughters teachers I found the administration to be hostile and self-interested. Most recently the assistant principal told one parent that Irving is "her house" meaning the needs or our community are secondary to her own. The school greatly benefits from being located in the heart of our safe and beautiful community, but the community, at present does not benefit enjoying Irving as a truly neighborhood school."

    "This is my oldest kid's 2nd year there. We love the pre-k team, curriculum, and facility. My 4 yr old is reading and told me the classmates learn to use proper manners. The pre-k teachers are terrific! We love the school."

    "My daughter attends Washington Irving and I absolutely love it! Her kindergarten teacher Ms.Lopez is the most awesome teacher that a child could ask for. She challenges the kids and my daughter is actually reading. She's great with the children. Even when my daughter is sick, she cry's to go to school. And the staff is the best. They are so caring and compassionate. What more could a mom ask for? Kudos to the staff and curriculum at Washington Irving!"

    "I have a child in kindergarten and have been very pleased. My daughter's teacher, Ms. Lopez, is top -notch. She has a long history of teaching, and maintains a high level of care and concern for each and every child in her class. She seems to have a great balance of gentle kindness, but commands respect from the kids at the same time. Although I can't speak for the upper classes, I think Irving is a little neighboorhood gem. Staff have continued to be friendly and helpful."
