    As a recent relocation from Florida to the Indian Springs Area we could not be more happy with the school. It is rean better thatn the very expensive private schools our daughters were in before and the paretnal involvement is unbelievable here. We are thankful everyday we are a part of this community.

    As a former student of ISES and a current student teacher I am very impressed with the leadership faculty and staff team work and motivation that this school exemplifies. ISES is an awsome place where learning is a priorty and positive experiences are created for every child. The motivation and drive of the staff is certainly contaigous. The PTA program is outstanding and strives to provide the maximum services to teachers and faculty to ensure that all needs are met so that students have an ultimate learning experience. The Indian Springs Community strongly supports it's elementary school and the community's people are deticated to participating in the ISES programs activities and fundraising. This school is definatly for any child that deserves a fair structured and quality education.

    Indian Springs is by far one of the top schools in the Tri-Cities. I have two children who wake up everyday excited about going to this school and I believe that alone says so much. The principal Mrs. Sells and her staff get to know the students of ISE as well as the parents and have no tolerance for leaving any child out. ISE teachers are educated leaders as well as innovative instructors. They work hard as a team to implement the best possible lessons for improving the quality of learning for their students and the test scores prove it. I'm very happy to say that my children attend Indian Springs Elementary where I know they are safe and are being given the best methods of teaching available to enhance their learning capabilities. Thanks ISE!

    At ISES the faculty and staff are wonderful to work with. Both of my children went through from K-5th grade and had wonderful experiences. You can not ask for a more caring loving and dedicated group of people to work with. The PTA is also a very supportive group to work with and is always working to improve the school.
