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.

I came from a predominantly white Catholic school. I never had a hard time in elementary or middle school. I'll admit, I was a bit skeptical about going to a magnet school. However, I was suddenly immersed in all different cultures from different parts of the world. It was definitely a shock for me, but I learned so much about different cultures, religion, and countries. Instead of being in a predominantly white school, I was in a school that was so diverse that there were no minorities. It was awesome. The schoolwork was tough. The IB program really pushes you the four years you are there to prepare you for college. I was always told that "college is going to be easier than this". In some areas, yes, but in others, no. The school is small-there were 42 people in my graduating class. There are pros and cons to this as everyone has struggled and grown up with each other that we are practically family, but some like big schools.
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.
