    "Wonderful school with a supportive, approachable staff! I have children who are present and future Iroquois students and feel so fortunate to have chosen and gotten into this school. The curriculum is stimulating and challenging and the school has great updated technology due to last years remodel. This school is K-8 yet feels very small and tight knit which allows my children and I to feel very comfortable. We are very much looking forward to our future with this Principal and teachers...they really are all fantastic!"

    "Great, caring and educated staff. Freshly remodeled building. District provides sufficient funds for technology and teacher training. The only thing missing is a stronger feel of community amongst parents. This school achieves a lot with a very mixed group of kids coming in."

    "We are so happy and felt so incredibly lucky that our Now 7 yr old got into ICS two and a half yrs ago! The Principal and staff are amazing. What I love most is Their focus on every single child's well-being. They Taget bullying and try hard to get kids to see how Fun learning is! They focus on enforcing positive Behavior. If they didn't focus on these important Factors, I bet this school would not have been voted Academic Excellence last year! They are doing an Exceptional Job! The kids want to learn, they look Forward to going to school and that's an incredible Thing to achieve :)"

    "My family loves this school! The staff, principal, and parents are very involved in trying to make the learning experience a positive one. We are very proud of the fact that ICS has been recognized by the State of Illinois for Academic Excellence in 2011 and 2012. There are multiple activities for students to pursue and the staff gives freely of their time to support these activities. The students are involved in their community, with fundraisers in support of Children with Cancer, Cystic Fibrosis , Juvenile Diabetes and food/clothing drives for the Des Plaines Food Pantry and area shelters. No school is perfect, but we feel this one comes very close to the mark"

    "This is a very poor school. The school is extremely unorganized and very poor at communicating effectively and accurately. The staff can be difficult to get a hold of, and often don't respond to messages left for them. The curriculum is seriously lacking. There is a lot of wasted time on busy work, there are no consequences when a student falls behind, and no effort to help them catch up or keep on task. I routinely see my children working on assignments that are well below grade level. Both of my students have reported being bullies at this school as well, despite it priding itself on it's bully prevention system. I would never again choose to send my children here."
