On September 6, 2022, Principal Paich had the incredible honor of opening Ironbound Academy Elementary School (IAES). IAES is Newark Board of Education’s newest school! The opening of IAES reimagined and transformed a shuttered parochial school within the Ironbound. In response to the growing population in the area, Superintendent León sought opportunities to provide families with additional seats in their neighborhood. As a result, IAES has been remodeled into a vibrant school building with smiling faces, positive energy, and an abundance of love! The dynamic teachers, coaches, building staff, and principal are committed to the academic, social, and emotional success of all.
Every aspect of Ironbound Academy Elementary School represents the love NBOE has for the city of Newark. Newark Board of Education’s highly skilled facilities and trades professionals fully upgraded the building which included improvements in lighting, flooring, paint, technology and infrastructure. Everyone who has contributed to the successful opening of this school is an important part of the legacy of Ironbound Academy Elementary School. The district is excited about “Building Strong Foundations at Ironbound Academy Elementary School”!
