Connecticut International Baccalaureate Academy Reviews
The Connecticut IB Academy is an excellent school with dedicated teachers in an interesting circumstance. With only 200ish students, the school climate is very family like: everyone knows everyone. Some people love it, others do not. I for one like it, it makes me feel very comfortable. In being such a small school, the teachers are very involved with student activity and know their students very well. Sports are played through the public high school quite literally next door (we are attached by a bridge). The teams there are very competitive. This year the boys varsity soccer team is 9-0-1 so far and are #1 in the state (I am one of the captains). In spite of going to different schools, the athletes are very accepting. Additionally, seeing different faces at sports is a nice change up from seeing the same people everyday at school. Overall, there is a very strong academic and extracurricular focus (IB coursework is very demanding) that I find very rewarding.
CIBA is not an easy school. As a magnet school, students are often coming from other towns, into a new environment. With only 50 students per grade, coming from various walks of life, to an entirely new educational program, there are definitely plenty of hurdles to jump. However, the IB program is certainly something worth working through, and students still get the opportunity to enjoy high school.
I like the close connection the students can have with the teachers. It is easy to talk to most teachers about issues about school work. There is a lot of diversity in this school and we acknowledge different cultures and we gain knowledge about the students background. The workload is a lot but it is preparing the students for college and the real world. This school teaches students different ways of thinking and helps us with our social skills by doing different activities in the classroom. This school is overall a good school but their can be improvements, especially in the math department. Personally, that department does not engage with the students and help them like the other departments to. This is putting a strain upon the students in all grades from Freshman to Seniors.
