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.

The teachers at my school are the best! Each teacher of course have their very own teaching style, yet it always seems to work out for the best. The main reason why I favor the teachers at my school so much, is that they are open to new ideas and concepts from the students' perspective. They are very knowledgeable about their subject area, but truly listen to what the students have to offer as well. Teachers at Connecticut I.B. Academy are great educators. This is evident when they can easily relate their learning topics to real world experiences, which in the long run helps us students to better understand the material being taught. The teachers are very consistent with their grading and really take the time and effort to go over and correct any mistakes you may have if asked.
CIBA was one of the most challenging academic institutions I have ever attended, but definitely prepared me for university. The school definitely put a lot of pressure on students, with intense assignments and very high standards/expectations. Sometimes, the stress got overwhelming and it was hard to live up to the aim of the school. However, because of CIBA, I am a much better student, and can pride myself on my ability to write an essay in an hour or less. Additionally, the intense atmosphere of the school - combined with the small class sizes - gave me some of my closest friends. As we often say, it's hard to understand CIBA unless you went to CIBA, which is often difficult in the midst of it but which gains you access to a vibrant community of intelligent, driven alums once you make it through.
