My school, DC International Public Charter School is International Baccalaureate (IB) school which offers college-level courses and the opportunity to earn college credit. I am fluent in Mandarin due to these wondeful programs offered at my school. I have traveled to China twice with my school to enhance my Mandarian in a full immersion setting. Most DCPS and DCPCS High Schools allow students to go off campus during lunch, I wish my school, DCI would allow us to go off campus during lunch as well. Overall my school is totally awesome. Go Dragons!!!

I experience that this institution is very good and Academically strong. Administrations are working hard to get students who will improve the academic level, if they are old and unable to work.

I want to change the level of low competition to high competition amoung students that is by studying and encouraging students also.
The immersion is great, and academics are more than satisfactory. The tier-one school makes college application an easier process by exposing the students to colleges and information early on, however, the actual work for underclass high school students is not hard enough to prepare for college. The 11th grade IB diploma program gets complex and time consuming without much preparation, which startles the students at first. After some time, it does get the students ready for a greater workload and professional environment with high expectations.
