    All Categories
    Many Dedicated teachers focused on learning
    Many kids are not academically inclined
    Many APs and Honors program Needs more electives Teacher- parent communication great Half day school is efficient
    Mixed bag Baskeball football Baseball- premier programs
    Tennis and Soccer- go somewhere else- these programs are a Big mess Not sure about Track LAX or Golf but golf pros are not PGA pros
    Weakness: coaches turnover a lot, paid poorly- if you think you get the best at and brightest coaches here you will NOT unless you’re on the top team in premier programs. You may get lucky and catch a year or two with a rising star coach but it’s hit or miss Communication with parents from coaches is Fair to poor - not as promised Mental coaching: hit or miss- unless you are in top team of premier program
    College like atmosphere - Nice Good array of activities and fun events Super nice campus and dorms Dorm manager rude Strict on drugs Food not good - cafeteria inefficient

    Overprized and mass produced, but otherwise great opportunities. Tuition nowadays is $83,000 which In my opinion should include a personal butler and daily massages alongside a three-course menu cooked by a Michelin star chef. Unfortunately, none of that is the case. Upside: Experienced and knowledgeable coaches!
    IMG has been a wonderful experience for my son. He has loved the baseball community as much as the environment. More than anything, it has helped prepare him for his next steps in going away to college. He had to learn to be independent and navigate his way through life, which he has successfully done.
