Imhotep is such a great school! With all of their prestigious academics and sports! Imhotep circles around African American culture but and race or ethnicity is able to join! Imhotep is like a family. I have made many relationships with teachers and students alike. And I couldn't be happier with who is present in my life. I wouldn't have it any other way with attending Imhotep. These last 3 and a half years have been the best times of my life! I hope someday you and your children or loved ones can experience this school too!

The special Education Program is excellent.We have been very pleased with the education our granddaughter has received for the past four years.Our Hats are off to all Imhotep Staff.
My overall experience at Imhotep Charter High School is good. I am a senior and I have had my times when I felt like I wanted to leave and I had times when I felt like I wanted to stay,but the good outweighs the bad so I am satisfied. One thing that I would change would be the selection of teachers sometimes. One thing I love about imhotep is that they really prepare you for college. They help you find websites for scholarships and everything. Also, they help you to stay on top of the whole college admission process.
