    I'm very happy with our school my son is returning as a 2nd grader and my little one will start K. We as a family have had a great experience at this wonderful school. I believe my kids will get an excellent education I am given plenty of oportunities to be involve in the school and I'm happy to be returning this year. I have met our new principal Mrs. Kahn and I'm excited for this new year.

    My children have gone to IV the youngest graduated this past spring. It has been a nurturing educational environment I am exceptionally happy about. The staff is innovative enthusiastic loves and challenges the students and works very well together. Ms. Maglione is approachable creative and motivating. Art music and PE are part of the cirriculum and the technology all of the teachers are able to use in their teaching as well as the technology the students are using is fantastic! This school with over 20 languages and multiple cultures is a wonderful learning environment for any student.

    Very disappointed with the way the principal leads the school and lack of mentoring and leading teachers. Lack of communication and accountability.

    This school is EXCELLENT! It is a melting pot of children from all over the world. My son is now in his 2nd year at IV school. I am amazed at the academics at IV. My son comes home SO positive about his day and it makes me So happy to see him gain confidence and enjoy learning. The Principal and the staff are SO dedicated. Our principal Mrs. Maglione is APPROACHABLE ENTHUSIASTIC and a POSITIVE role model to her staff and to the students as well. The teachers and staff are HAPPY to be at IV. Mrs Maglione is a proud principle and it shows in her daily work at Isla Vista. IV school has SO much to offer academically socially and emotionally to every child and parent that walks through those doors. Isla Vista school keep up the good work! sincerely a Proud Isla Vista school parent Julissa Valerjev

    Isla Vista School is an exciting school. Children there represent over twenty countries and languages. This environment provides the possibility of learning about and understanding different cultures religions and races. Staff includes an art teacher music teacher GATE teacher and many language arts specialists. Teachers love to be At Isla Vista. Many chose to send their own children there when they could attend a more affluent school. The teachers are committed to the children and work very hard to reach the academic standards that government has imposed. Though a large percentage of parents do not speak English the administration makes every effort to involve the parents not only as volunteers but in learning the English language training them how to help their children and providing reasonable child care for families who must work to meet the cost of living in this community. Look beyond the statistics & try to understand this school.
