IEA prides itself on giving back to the community. Each month the students chose a charity to support through a monthly dress down day. Through monetary contributions and the donation of goods, IEA has been able to support the Lupus Foundation of America, West Hartford Food Bank, and local families.
Additionally, at the end of each school-year, students and staff come together to form an Austism Speaks Walk team. Last year, the school was the recepient of the Silver Team Award for Greater Hartford Walk.
