Ms. Zack,

I just want to thank you for your hard work and efforts in preparing our children for success with a solid foundation of reading. Reading was my refuge as a child, and continues to be one of my biggest joys. I love seeing that same excitement in Jalen and Jared,  as they work to exceed expectations and make us proud. I especially want to thank you for the retreat last night at the Carmel Community Center. You provided healthy snacks, a great fun room, and made everyone feel deserving and welcome. All while being a gracious hostess, event organizer, etc. I tip my hat to you, and can honestly say that educators like you are what set IMSA North apart from everyone else, and is also why I look forward to my boys attending next year. Enjoy your Sunday and try to get that hour back we lost overnight!
H. Bonds, Parent

Mr Secen,
I just thought you should know how thankful I am for your staff. 3 people in particular went above, beyond, and out of their way to make sure my son Jude was taken care of. On Tuesday apparently he started not feeling good so he was sent to your nurse Lisa Watts. She was able to take her time and examine him. She saw that his fingers were peeling and immediately thought strep(I had no idea that was a symptom). She called me to let me know she wanted to do a strep test. I agreed but also let her know he has major anxiety when it comes to his throat as he had a bad infection years ago that caused him to have surgery and a 5 day hospital stay. She tried for over a 1/2 hour to get him to let her swab his throat. With no success she called and asked if he was close with anyone within the building that may help calm his anxiety. I told her Miss April is his #1 go too. (Mine too) . She also came to the aid of Jude. She tried everything she could to help Miss Lisa. Even offering to let her swab her throat as well to show him that its so fast and quick and does not hurt. Anyway, long story short, I came up to help as well, Miss Mills is always so pleasant at the office and she was aware of the situation and was very helpful as well. These 3 women all have kids and know how I feel. I can’t always be there to save the day but they can. And did! Thank you for loving my children and taking time to make sure that no matter what, Jude was not just going to be pushed to the side or sent home without knowing what was going on. It saved us a trip to an ER and with a high deductible insurance it saved us a lot of money and worry. Jude is in 4th grade and has been a student there since kindergarten so Miss April has always been a part of his daily routine. She goes out of her way more to make sure Jude and Jagger are taken care of, educated, and loved but also held accountable for their actions. Thank you! Miss Lisa is a wonderful asset to the school. The school nurse is not just someone who hands out ice packs and band aids. She is a professional who handles the care of our future. Our kids! She has knowledge, patience, and love. Thank you! And also, Miss Mills. Again, knows the boys, their routine, their facial expressions. And mine as well. She knows when something is wrong. She has always handled anything we have thrown her way with a smile. I love that when I walk in to school, they are aware of who I am and who belongs to me. We are more than just a number or a test score. Thank you! Keep up the good work!

“Since working at IMSA North, I have had the opportunity to see and experience first-hand the operation and growth of the school.  Each week that passes I see the progress that the students are making as well as the progress the school is making towards being an environment that challenges the students and encourages their independence.  It is a pleasure to get to know so many families and students that make their home here.  Truly it is an environment of community and it builds more each week.  As I walk in the halls I am greeted by many students and I see them building friendships and entrusting their teachers as they sense the common goal of all at the school – to see the students succeed.

The experiences I’ve had on the field trips have been amazing and have provided even more of an opportunity to see the student’s personalities and curiosity to know they are in the environment that best suits these curiosities.  It reminds me of what a great opportunity they have before them if they choose to accept it.

Personally, I find IMSA North a place that challenges me to succeed as well while also allowing me to build friendships that will sustain.  This is a position that is very rewarding and one that I anticipate growing into for years to come.”

-Katherine Beckwith- Regional Community Relations Coordinator



“We have been very pleased with IMSA North.  The staff demonstrate professionalism and exhibit genuine interest in the students’ well being.  It has been a wonderful experience to share our son’s enthusiasm for his school.  IMSA North offers a nice balance of structure & socialization in a safe environment, as well as a rich, dynamic curriculum to foster positive learning experiences.  All children are held accountable for their behavior and encouraged to be responsible leaders from day one.  We look forward to growing with IMSA North over the years to come!”
