A very tight knit community that is very supportive in getting the students the education they need. There is a real sense of unity in this school and it is easy to connect with other students. Both teachers and administration are really caring and supportive to all the students and easy to reach out to. The classes are very interesting but there isn't and abundance of classes so you'll have to take summer classes at the local community college in order to take classes that interest you. Classes are not available for students who are advanced so taking classes at the local community college are required if you want to surpass the required the required A-G courses. Overall, Impact is an excellent community for students who want to learn.

I would say academically the school is a great choice for college ready and to really be creative with assignments but it takes away the high school experience by not having lockers, a football team, a library and a gym. Impact is very small and needs to fix there buildings because they are terrible and falling apart. The food is not the greatest and the clubs are really limited in choice, along with there sports. The only positive trait is there academics because they really do support you in homework and big assignments, especially college.
I am a tenth grade student at Impact. Overall, Impact is a very welcoming place. Students are very kind and they motivate me to do well. My teachers make sure that I understand the topic by using new teaching strategies. I really love how this school has projects that prepare me for the real world. For instance, I had to do many presentations that helped me better communicate and present my works. The assignments that I have been given have helped me collaborate more productively with my peers. Rather than doing standardized tests to determine our academic growth, everybody does projects that display what we have learned over the year.
