Incarnate Word High School Reviews

The most important thing Incarnate Word High School did for me was that it taught me the importance of independence. Based off its mod schedule, students are taught time management, responsibility, and mainly independence. During our open mods, students can visit with teachers, visit peer tutors, and even go to the library to get their work completed. Aside from its academics, Incarnate Word provides a positive female environment. It does not show it's students how to become feminists, but it builds the confident energy in its all female school.
I loved the four years I have been at Incarnate Word. Many of my friends seem to complain and of course there may be flaws about the school but I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.

The academics at the school, the class schedule, and the environment prepares the girls for college. The schedule requires the girls to manage their time and holds them accountable for studying on their own and completing assignments and projects. The school promotes group activities and participation in athletic team sports. I would highly recommend the school for any high school female student wanting to prepare for college.
Something I loved about Incarnate Word High School was the modular schedule we had at the school. It was built very much like a college schedule and teaches the students to use their time wisely and learn to balance out their homework, social life, teacher-student relationships for tutoring, and athletics all at the same time.

What I would like to see change about Incarnate Word High School is to have updated facilities. It is understood by all that these facilities cost money, but I feel our school could put more consideration towards the facilities our students use daily such as: bathrooms, smartboards, more efficient water fountains, and parking space around the school depends on who arrives first due to there not being enough space.
