I like the schedule. I don't like the lack of improvement on certain things. There are things to be improved such as getting new programs/advanced classes.
The teachers at IHSCA would always make you feel motivated and help you reach your goals. A thing I would change is they should give students less homework.
What I like about Ihsca is that they have a many clubs where we can join and every person is respectful with other. Also, they offers program for the person who likes medicine and it is super emotional because we learning something new every month about the high pression and other things which is so important. That’s the reason that I like the way the school worried about the students
IHSCA has very great and involved advisors that dedicate their time and effort to making sure all their students are on track and are getting the needed help that they Deserve and need ! While they make sure they give students opportunities like gaining college credits while being in high school! They also have many internships if you as a person become very involved and dedicated to doing good , while we also have many clubs for you to join and participate in.
My experience at instituto is disappointing the board gets rid of the teacher way too often and we often see Subs in at least 1 class every day.
IHSCA is a place where honestly administrations care more about how the student looks than the their education. The Dean Ramos is very inspiring and knows how to push you like other teachers they will always push your limits and make you realize that you can do whatever you put your mind on. Security has not pleased me being here they all have their favorites most of them not all of them.
IHSCA is a very popular high school that is located on 25 and western . I really enjoy my high years here the teacher and great, they manage to help you understand the subject completely . In the other hand , the administration is terrible . They are not engage with the students nor bother to check with the staff . I wish I could see that change for the following years.
What I liked about IHSCA was having to bring cultural to other students and the safety measurements in there is excellent. What I don't like about is the lack of sports and the food in there isn't that great to which no one can not bring outside food.
I have been there all four years but I would have wanted the school to be more involved in the students and actually learning what we need to be college reading since freshman year instead of senior year. I had great and bad times here at instituto but it could be better for next generations. I like how we have school events throughout the school year.
IHSCA is a great school! Especially the extra programs and internships that help you get different experiences. For instance I'm interested in the Medical Field so since freshman year I have been a part of Rush University, & the University of Chicago. IHSCA gives you the push and exposure you need to find what you like to do in general and career wise.
The teachers are helpful to students they actually care about them. There's a lot of internships you can do. I feel pretty safe in this school.
My academic experience here at IHSCA has been great. The classes are 80 minutes long and I believe that is a good thing because its more time for learning. We have a total of 5 classes but we learn alot in them. Theres classes like AVID that helps you be prepared for college. I think its a good school because it helps out a lot. The advisors and staff are friendly.
My experience in this school was a challenge, but this school was also an amazing experience. I met all my friends and found what I want to do in life. All the staff were very helpful and are always there for you when you need it. The rules are pretty easy to follow. The classes are long and interesting. You learn a lot and with that the years go by so fast. In conclusion, it’s a good school to get your medical career or other.
My experience in IHSCA has been like a roller coaster. At some points, I liked it, and at some points, I didn't.
As of now I am half way through my highschool experience and it has been a great journey. I feel comfortable in my classes and my counselor is always making sure I am in the right classes. Not too easy but yet also challenge me. Ihsca is a really clean building and they have brought me much help so I can make my final decision into attending the college that I would desire to attend.
I think it's an average school because the diversity is minimal. But it's also a school that highlights hispanic culture. They do this by having Spanish required for the four years of attendance. The bad thing about this is that this is the only foreign language that's available
As a junior in IHSCA, for the past 3 years, my experience has been great. The students, teachers, and staff are very friendly here. There are many classes that we take throughout the years. There are classes that prepare you for college like AP and AVID classes. We have clubs and programs that are open for students and parents. The food here can be improved. I’ve met new and old friends here,I have learned things, and have recieved opportunities for my well being, which is great.
