Education Services

Thank you for visiting the Education Services homepage.

We believe IUSD's record of academic excellence is the result of a combination of fundamental elements:

  • Parents who insist on dedicated time for school work and reading
  • Students who give strong effort and hard work to their learning
  • Curriculum designed to prepare students for the future they will face, balanced across essential skills and concepts, and the challenge of using those skills and concepts
  • Teaching strategies based on how the brain works and how students learn best
  • Assessment of both essential learning, and the application of learning in real-world contexts

We invite you to learn more about our programs and our continuous improvement efforts. Thank you for visiting us.
