Incarnate Word Academy High School Reviews

My experience here at IWA has been great! All of the courses help prepare you for college and they offer a good amount of dual enrollment classes and have sat/act practice classes as well. The well rounded environment has made me feel welcomed, safe, and at home. I would like to see change in the student involvement aspect. I believe that doing so would encourage other students to attend and engage current students to appreciate their campus more.

What I like about Incarnate Word Academy is how well this school prepares you for college. The strictness of the teachers and the difficulty of the work has challenged me year after year. I know for a fact that when I attend the university of my choice, I will be ahead of the majority of my peers because of the curriculum of Incarnate Word that so closely reflects that of a college. So often do alumni who have just graduated from college or are in the process of doing so, come back to thank the teachers and staff for not only pushing them to try their hardest in every subject but for creating such a challenging school environment. If I were to change anything about IWA, it would be the menu that the cafeteria offers. This is because there is such a limited amount and assortment of nutritional foods. It is crucial for high school students to consume fruits, vegetables, and whole grains so that they may perform well in their studies and on the court.
This is my sixth year attending Incarnate Word Academy. I have learned the meaning of the word discipline. You have to be very disciplined to succeed at IWA. It is considered a college preparatory school, with its aim placed on preparing us for the rigors of college life. Almost 100% of all seniors attend college. Students are given individualized attention by a team of outstanding teachers and administrators who truly care. They know every student by name. In addition, the school offers many opportunities for us to become successful leaders.
