What Parents Are Saying

I want to say how much I am thankful for Indiana Ag and Technical School. It was a lifesaver for my grandson. He has achieved so much and the FFA program is excellent. He is taking classes in areas that he wants to excel in and is. Now this year was the first year for his sister and she has done very well too. She is in the FFA program and the classes she is enrolled in is based on what she wants to do after she gets out of high school. It has been a true blessing for the whole family. Thank you IATS!!!

We love our IATS school family! IATS provided the change our sons needed to excel academically and emotionally. They learn at their own pace with the schedule for real life experiences. The SPED department has provided exceptional personalized services that allow opportunities for all. IATS gave us our family time back due the flexibility of their program.

– Parent of IATS Students

Indiana Agriculture and Technology has been a game changer for our family. This program has provided some amazing opportunities for my 8th grader and freshman both within the school and outside of the school. Within the school setting, they love the flexibility and support within the curriculum, and the active participation days are the best day of the week for them as they love socializing with their friends and learning about relevant topics related directly to agriculture. Because of the flexibility of the curriculum, my kids have also been afforded some amazing opportunities outside of school. In the past year alone, they have had the opportunity to participate in our daily family grain farm operations as well as our family show pig business from breeding to farrowing to sales and show preparations. We enjoyed traveling as a family without the worry of missing out on curriculum as the curriculum “came with us.” Morgan and Marek have even been able to start their own business this past year. Our family looks forward to what the future holds with an IATS education.

– IATS Parent and Student Learning Advocate

IATS was an absolute game changer and God Send for our family! We were in a tough situation and had to find an alternative to public school for my son. Not at any fault of his, but our local High School had nothing for him, and things were happening out of our control. We heard of IATS through a local farmer who had been to a Crop dinner and learned of this school. I immediately looked into it and I was completely impressed when I spoke directly to the Executive Director Keith Marsh as soon as I called. He gave me all the information I needed and even though it was 1/2 way through the school year he had my son ready to start his 2nd semester of his freshman year at IATS. He was President of their FFA chapter 2 years, and He LOVES the ability to do his work in his time and still have time to run his goat business on the side along with working at a local dairy. He is getting ready to be a senior this fall, and we have absolutely no regrets of making this decision. After Covid hit and my daughter who was in the 7th grade in public school grades started dropping horribly we decided to also enroll her in IATS last fall, and she will now be beginning her freshman year this fall. We are excited to continue down this path. Everyone is like family there and my kids are totally different in a good way since attending this amazing school.
