    I student taught in Mrs. Holcroft's first grade classroom and enjoyed every minute of it. I could tell that the school's goal was to reach every child. The staff was friendly and acted like a family. I would recommend this school to everyone who wants their child to receive great education and be in a positive environment.

    I have a mixed review. I have 2 children in this school and while with my first grader I have only good things to say about the KG and 1st Grade teacher he has had. My daughter has not been so lucky. Her KG teacher seems to be at a loss and I have had to work very hard to keep my daughter on track. I love the schools office staff but I think it is hit and miss with the teachers.

    My daughter is a KG and a student of Mrs. Carver. I have been so impressed with ISOM's dedication and support for the children. Mrs. Carver is an amazing teacher along with her two classroom assistants. Everytime I go in the school I'm greeted by the friendly staff. I love that all of the staff is a "hands on staff". It's in a great community with such a great small town feel to it! Thank you to all who work at ISOM! I appreicate you all

    I love Isom because the teachers really care about the students. It is a very close-knit community and the parents and teachers really are there to help each other out. I love the principal especially Mrs. Wooten.

    My daughter Angelique is in Kindergarden at Isom And all I have is good things to say.Her teacher Mrs. Carver is wonderful a teacher who cares about these students. Mrs. Wooton is the Principle of this school and she has been remarkable all the children seem to really enjoy her being the Principle. Since the first day of school till today I see so much growth within my daughter not just in the basic but in her attitude her behavior etc. I would highly recommend Isom to any new parent looking for a great school to enroll their children.

    Our daughter just started kindergarten this past year at ISOM. I've been beyond impressed by the faculty and staff at this school. Every morning we're greeted at the door with a smile. It seems every teacher knows every student by first name and you can tell that the environment is warm and inviting to the kids. We've been wowed by how quickly our daughter has been learning.

    We have two daughers at Isom and we love it. Both my daughters are involved in various Isom activities and the teachers are wonderful. My oldest daughter has Celiac disease and the teachers principle nurse down to the art and gym teacher have been absolutely wonderful handling this challange. We love Isom and will contiue to show our support toward the school. Our oldest was to go to Westwood but we moved into Isom land. Evrything is so personal and teachers know you and your child by name. I would recommed Isom to anyone.

    2007-2008 has been the first that we have had a child in school and Isom is wonderful. The front office staff are very helpful and nice. Mrs. Prewitt always has a smile on her face and know kids by name. My son's teacher Mrs. Carver is a delight. She has helped my son through some rough times. Isom is the school district that you want to be in. We love Isom!

    I have had two children at isom. This is very sad because over the last few years I have really enjoyed this school staff and parents. This school is wonderful if you spend one day youll know why we all love VOISOM so much.

    I have 2 children that go to VO ISOM School and both are doing very well because the teachers are very caring and involved. The Principal is also very involved with the hands on day to day activities involving the school. I see her almost every time I go there not in her office but in the classrooms library lunchroom etc. involved in the normal daily school activites and learning. You couldn't ask for a better group of teachers. They are not only teachers but mentors nurturers and are good listeners when the children need them. I would recomend this school to any parent!

    I really like the quality of the school. The principal and the teachers are very caring supportive to each child. My daughter not only lovers her school but is very is happy to go every morning. What more could you want? I would like to say thank you to all the staff for being so very wonderful. I recommend this school to any parent who is considering a move to the area.
