Angel Robinson Garrett, Office Administrator and Day Care Program Director:

​​Though a native of Denver, CO, Angel spent most of her childhood through young adulthood living in Pasadena, CA. She attended both the University of Colorado-Denver and UCLA.  Angel worked in the banking and finance industries prior to beginning a career first as a stay at home mom in 2005 and then as the head chef at a local child care facility. When her son was in 2nd grade, she was looking for a Christian school that would teach him structure, build character, discipline, have small class sizes, and give him the tools he needed to be successful. ICS provided all of these tools and then some. Little did she know that this was the Lord's way of changing her career yet again.  She enjoys her job, loves the staff, and kids. She is extremely grateful to work for ICS as the office administrator and Day Care Director. In 2017 she received her Director's Certification and is continuing her education in ECE, and has been dubbed the “chef” for the staff.

The Inner City School staff are dedicated and loving individuals who care about the future of our children.
