    Indianapolis Junior Academy has wonderful teachers and nice students. My daughter attended Kindergarten there 2012-2013 and I was very impressed with all aspects of the curriculum.

    I am very pleased with IJA staff and teachers. The teacher's at IJA actually care about the childrens education and give each and every student the quality one on one attention the need. My duaghter has been a student of IJA since she was 2 1/2 yrs of age. Within a month of attending the school she was taught sign language and how to write her name. With the time and hard work that her teacher (Ms. Henry) has put into working with her she is and always has been ahead of her class. Now in Preschool she is doing Pre-K work. My daughter loves the teacher's and doing the work she is given especially the homework like the 'Big Kids'. Special thanks to Ms Henry Ms Jenkins and Ms Cane for all your hard work. To the new Principal welcome & I look forward to a good year.

    I am very please with IJA and how the teacher's actually care about the students and their education. My child is 4 and started at IJA when she was 2 1/2 yrs old. Since taking out of Day Nursery becaue she had no teacher at all she has been ahead of her class and now in Pre- School she's doing Pre-K work. I am really pleased at how parents come together they are like family at IJA and I love it. My daughter at the age of three and now four is so overwhelmed with the fact that she does homework like the 'Big Kids' and loves doing the work. She got Perfect Homework Attendance last year and will strive for perfect atttendance this year also. Thank you Ms Henry & Ms Jenkins for all your hard work. Welcome to the new Principal look forward to the new year. - Yvette White

    My child is now 5 years old and has been going to IJA since he was 3 1/2. He started in preschool. First of all he is way beyond any kid I know that is going to Township and private schools. It was hard for his to like to do homework when he was 3...(YES 3).. But now he loves to do homework! And I am still very SHOCKED!! Now that he is home on break he always wants to go by his school. And he recently said he wants to break the door down so that he can do his homework!! BRAVO to all of the teachers!!! And welcome to Mr and Mrs Lee YOU ARE DOING A WONDERFUL JOB!! KEEP THE GOOD WORK UP! Signed A very happy Parent!
