Imagine International Academy of North Texas Reviews

34 reviews
All Categories
The Imagine International Academy of North Texas is a college preparatory school, equipped with a rigorous IB curriculum for students in grades K-12. The work is more challenging than that of a typical public school. The assignments often encourage creativity and critical thinking. Most teachers are strict but fair, and have very high expectations for each student. The school culture is healthy, and [in my grade, at least] there is little bullying.

However, the school's athletics program is not very high in quality (there are no football or soccer teams). Additionally, many of the facilities (such as the gym, bathrooms, and classrooms) are small and could use improvement. Furthermore, there is a LOT of stress for those in the higher grades (10-12, especially). At times, the workload is unreasonably difficult and time-consuming.

Despite its flaws, however, Imagine is doing very well in preparing me for the future.

My school really is a community. With smaller class sizes and a larger focus on class and school bonding, I feel a connection to my school that my public school friends are envious of.

Imagine uses the IB curriculum, which is honestly useless until the Diploma Programme (11-12 grades) which teaches students how to write extended, thesis level research papers, how to take exams, write very good essays, give great presentations, and balance a heavy workload- all while encouraging well-roundedness and service. The school weighs art as a core subject, and 150 Creativity, Action, and Service hours are due by the end of the two years.

Going to my school is a struggle sometimes. The disorganization can be frustrating. Being at the same school as kindergartners can be frustrating. But all of this is not enough to outweigh the amazing education and community that it provides.
Excellent school academically, but lacks in all other aspects. Very diverse compared to other schools in area and virtually no bullying. Kids are all academically strong and attend this school only for that aspect. Teachers are nothing special; its the curriculum that advances the students. Mostly gifted/talented students are interested in this school so the success rate is high. Very few parent volunteers even though school needs them badly. This is a public charter so no city funding. Few opportunities other than academics. Project-based learning. Very liberal school but conservative views are accepted. Administration will not baby parents or students. They will defend teachers without fairly listening to parental concerns. Lower grades very overcrowded. Little interest in grades 9-12; enrollment drops significantly.
