As a senior, I can say Impact Academy is an amazing school. The staff is wonderful, and the teachers are very interactive and work with the students. In my 4 years, I have been welcomed by the diverse students and staff. There are a variety of clubs started by the students themselves! We even have fun events during the year for each grade level. The classes provided at Impact help prepare the students for college in the most efficient way. This school is not just a school. It is a community, and I cannot think of any other school that will make me feel more at home than this one does.

Impact Academy is an okay school. What sets this school apart is that this is part of a charter school network called Envision Education. The lesson planning from the teachers are well-organized, the teachers are willing to help students both inside and outside the classroom, and projects were the cornerstone in introducing leadership skills for the students. However, in spite of the welcoming environment with diversity with both students and teachers, conflicts have occurred time-to-time and the administration has not handled it well in some aspects. I was fortunate enough to graduate in due time, but I cannot recommend this school to other students as a recent alum.
I like how they guide you towards college very heavily and really push for everyone to go to college despite boundaries set by society. The teachers and staff are all friendly and care about you. If at any time you were not feeling so good, student or teacher, someone would check in with you. I also like how for SAT and sometimes AP testing, they can cover the costs for low income families or those who had problems come up with the ability to take one. Although being a small school, the fun and livelihood don't have the same limit.
