    This is a very good school my kids are learning a lot thanks to the good staff they got there.

    I took my college class studying the immigration controversy to observe the bilingual program at Irving both this year and last year. The class and I were amazed at how well the program is working and at the competence of the teachers and administrators involved. it was the enthusiasm and fluency in both languages that made the visit so special. Congrats to all involved.
