8/20/2011parentTerrible year so far. Utter confusion. Lack of experience. My son has a sub for a months!
5/13/2011parentMy daughter is in 5th grade at MIS...I feel the school has sooo much for its kids and really focuses on the kids. They have a great discpline policy and academic program.
3/31/2009parentMy daughter began 5th grade in Fall of 2008 @ MIS. We heard more negative than positive things about the school which was sad since most of it seemed to rumor. I know there are problems with every school, however the teachers have been great, both in teaching and communicating, Mrs. Renner is readily available to listen to any issuses. Only issue I have with MIS is the lunch time and the chaos that goes with it. By the time everyone is served the last kids seem to only have 2-3 minutes to eat. When the students are unruly everyone suffers. Sad that these days many (not all) students feel some sense of entitlement and do whatever they please. Parents need to work with the faculty and accept that no one is perfect including their own child. Bottome line, MIS is a great school!
3/10/2008parentChild are expected to act as mindless robots on a daily basis and the school answer to normal behavior is detention, detention, detention. Please, as educated professionals, can't you find a more productive way of teaching and challenging our children than by dismissing them and making them feel as if they are insignificant and not worth the time.
4/12/2005parentYour children must not be minorities, because if they are you won't get much help from the teachers.
1/5/2005parentMy son has been a student at MIS since September. I am completely satisfied & overjoyed that he is in a good school. His teachers are very caring and if there is a problem they are right on it. The communication is A+. He has learned more this year than at the private school I took him out of. I would recommend MIS and the town of Merrillville to anyone looking for a new community to live in. I don't regret my decision to leave my old community at all.
6/13/2004parentMy child is very happy at this school. Last year at Iddings my child was struggling and he received no support or help from his teacher. Too many children in each class and quite frankly the teacher should have not been teaching. She was near retirement age and not well physically to be in a classroom . This year my son had an excellent teacher and he made the honor roll each semester and even the high honor roll. My son is doing excellent in this school.
