  • I have 2 children who attended Imperial, and they received an excellent education. They became superior readers, loved school and their teachers, and were given a great foundation for the years to come. Parking is an issue at every school because the lots were not built to accomodate the volume of cars that we see today. Imperial's parking lot is "tame" compared to the other schools that my children now attend. Lastly, because Imperial only goes up to 3rd grade, they have the ability to concentrate on those students without disctrations.

  • I think the school is great. I just wish more parents would become more involved. As far as the parking? It is a small school and the major problem I see is the parent (or whom ever is picking the child up) not following instructions. Maybe parents should start following the rules. They have afterall, received permission from a church right next to the school to use their parking lot. If you need to drive, park next to the school and walk!

  • The school parking lot is horrible.
    The most recent renovation, to up-date the parking structure is not working. Their idea of closing the far gate on the opposite side of imperials front entrance was a very bad idea. TO pick up your children you have to wait in a huge long line usually on imperial blvd, miss one to three green light because everyone is turning right into imperial. Once you turn into the school, it's a mad-house. I think they need to open the back gate again.
