Thank you to the 174 parents who took part in our fall survey. 


We look forward to looking at these results with our Family Engagement Committee and PTA and designing a plan to improve.

Family Partnerships

​At IES we believe that your child's education is a shared responsibility between their home and their school. In order for our students to be successful, we want to partner with parents to support students' academic and social emotional growth. To support our commitment to partnering with our parents, we want to share our vision for partnering with our families.​  


Please see the attached letter sharing our committment to partnering with our families and a welcome letter from our PTA President Maricarmen Vazquez.

-Mr. Basham
