    I have 2 daughters and they both have gone to Ireland from Kinder to 6th grade. They have had great teachers and principals. I am so glad this is the school my girls have gone to I wouldn't trade it for anything. My girls have done so well in academics and the reading program here is wonderful.

    My son is now in the 3rd grade and he started his kinder year at Ireland. It is a wonderful school with wonderful staff.

    I feel Ireland is a great school. The teacher's are great. There could be more parent involvement but they have great musical programs and after school activities. The kids do have homework at least 3 nights a week and reading is heavily stressed.

    Ireland is a very great school. The magnet program Teachers P.E. Recess etc. It Gives great sport activities and it has TONS of extracurricular activities to do. If you are wanting your child to go to a Magnet school I recommend you send your child to Ireland.

    My daughter Azure attends Ireland this year. She is in the first grade. Her K teacher Ms. Hager was just what we prayed for. This year she has Ms Roberts. She is another answered prayer. Everyone at Ireland is very friendly and I am so glad we have chosen to send our daughter there.
