My kids attended Iowa for 5 years and I could see it get better in the last couple years with the new principle. The teachers do the best they can but I don't think they get the support they need from parents and APS. The class sizes are too big for an elementary school and thus cannot keep track of all the kids every minute of the day. We have had issues with bullying that was not ignored but could not stop completely due to the lack of ability/support. Kids suffer and teachers suffer when parents do not and take an active role in their child and support the teacher; give the teachers the benefit of the doubt that they are doing the best they can with what they have. Find out how you can help! It is sad that this is the future for our educational system that teachers cannot teach and educate because they are busy dealing with strict budget and rules and kids without parental support and involvement. I pulled my kids and are trying out a charter school with smaller class sizes. There are great teachers and staff there doing the best they can with what they got.
