Illinois Mathematics & Science Academy Reviews
Review Illinois Mathematics & Science Academy
I love IMSA! There is a great balance of academic and social opportunities. The people that you meet and the opportunities/experience you will gain is priceless Personally, I feel like the academic support for minorities could definitely be stronger, nevertheless it's still a great institution.
The most unique part about IMSA is that it simulates a college experience, from college prep classes to sleeping in residence halls on campus, to the variety of food delivery options available. It teaches lessons that are beyond the classroom, such as personal care, respecting community, and most importantly respecting the backgrounds of those around you. While they don't always go about it in the best way possible, and stress and lack of sleep are always common problems on campus, you come out of this experience a different person, for better or for worse. You'll make amazing friends and connections along the way that makes the experience all the better.
Imsa is going downhill very quickly. I'm glad I am going to be leaving this school. The administration and officials are secretive and hide things from parents and students. They do not collaborate or accommodate well with parents or students either. They are unfair, unhelpful, secretive, and unreasonable. All departments are slipping as policies are changing that take away what IMSA is really about: self guided learning and true passion. Student opportunities are dwindling and imsa is becoming more and more restrictive while at the same time other high schools are giving students more opportunities. Imsa is a great concept and was once great but the quality of education and student life are plummeting. Some real changes to policies and staff need to be enacted if this place wants to be open in 5 years. Because at this rate, imsa is going to crash and burn really fast.
