I am rating Hardaway High School a four out of five star rating because of the diversity of the atmosphere and the students themselves. Not only that, but Hardaway High offers different programs and options and choices for their students, such as their dual-enrollment program and their IB Program, or International Baccalaureate Program. I am currently enrolled as an IBDP (IB Diploma Program) student, and basically, Hardaway is offering college classes and credits to take as both a core class and extra curricular class. There are other programs, such as IBCP (IB Career Program) and Chord. IBCP offers students to interactive and began classes into a career that a student may be interested in. The only thing that I would change about Hardaway High is the introduction and preparing upcoming students into the different programs because, although the programs are very beneficial in their own ways, there are multiple difficulties and challenges that have to faced.
The main selling point for Hardaway is the IB Program. Students outside of the program tend to, as a general rule, be faaar less academically successful. The workload for IB may overwhelm some students, however, the difficult courses are extremely worthwhile. The school has a very unique approach to learning, and IB students tend to leave the school far more independent, open-minded, and driven than other high school graduates. Aspects of the program such as CAS and TOK in particular really help to encourage students to be more reflective, and ask questions about the world around them. The philosophy-oriented courses really inspire an inquisitive and considerate mindset for students, and CAS allows students to volunteer and develop a community driven mindset, while helping students build a resume and a history of volunteer work that look STELLAR on college applications.
