James Irwin Charter Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

My child has attended JICES since kindergarten and is now in 4th grade. She has learned so much. I don’t know many 4th graders who can recite the preamble to the constitution by memory. She can also do complicated math problems very quickly, read over 190 words per minute, write in cursive, sing the national anthem and so much more. More importantly, she has been taught to love, respect and honor her peers and adults. JICES doesn’t just focus on teaching your child, but develops their entire character. They are the best school in Colorado Springs, not just because their test scores are the highest, but because they are truly dedicated to building up the children to become successful in their lives in and out of school.

My experience at this school has been Horrible! I transferred my sons and I really regret it. I thought charters would be better than public schools, but each school has its own pros and cons. At this school, transfer students have to take a placement test. What I did not know is that the school has its own best interest at heart, which is extremely hurtful. I wanted my children to learn more and to get away from the craziness of public schools, so I trusted everything the school said, because I believed in their concept. However, my son no longer liked school after going to JICS. He was embarrassed to repeat the same grade. I tried so hard to make him feel better. No one at the school put him down for repeating a grade, but there was no point to repeat a grade if he already knew the parts that were being taught. It wasn't until the end of the year that he was finally introduced to new materials. His grades were good, therefore it made the school look good, but since he already understood the materials it did not enrich him and he was not feeling challenged. My son started focusing on his flaws and what he could have done better. My sons life was altered because of one bad test day. Can you believe it? The day he had his placement test, was a hectic time, because he was still dealing with the other school. That is why I was trying to get him into another school. However, to be tested and stuck by the results is not okay. He was judged and no corrections were made. I should have argued with the school more instead of just accepting it. Ultimately I put my son in this school trusting them, when I should not have, which makes me feel really bad. They put my child in limbo because he was high in some things like math, average on others and low only in reading. But to put him in a lower grade entirely for one subject is deplorable and also absolutely mean. The concept of the school could work but it depends on so many things including how the teacher implements the schools concepts. Therefore you could have a good experience or poor experience depending on the teacher your student has. Do your research! Ultimately I left the school, but if you want to try it, check your child's emotional state daily. I personally would not recommend the school.Thank you

This school never cease to amaze me. My daughter is in Kindergarten and I am so happy I chose this school. They discipline the kids very well with positive way that makes kids want to be good. I love their Direct Instruction method they use, I think it makes kids pay attention more to teachers. They constantly award kids who did well not only academically but also for having good personalities, and bring their spirit up. They don't overload us with homework, just the right amount every day, yet what kids learn at school is so advance. They teach with songs and hand gestures that makes memorizing so much fun! The communication between staff and parents are well established and parents are always welcomed to be involved. I can tell all the staff go through very well training and they are all so caring. My daughter loves this school and so do I. Especially if your kids love learning new things, this is the school to go!

My child has been attending JICES since kindergarten and is now in the 5th grade. He is excelling in all his studies and loves going to school. He has a love of math, reading and history because of the excellent teachers at JICES that are making a huge impact on his education. I could not have asked for a better school to send my child to.

I have three kids in the James Irwin schools soon to be four when she's old enough and I can't say enough about how great the school is. They really care about what is best for your child. The teachers not only help your child to strive for excellence but they themselves strive for excellence too. It feels good to know my children are in the hands of people who have high standards and will do everything in their power to help them reach their full potential. Thanks James Irwin for caring so much.
