I am in a program called the California Early College Academy.I became part of what we call the "CECA Family."I was able to meet new people, take advantage of college readiness classes, & most importantly I was able to take classes at American River College. My experience revolves around meeting people and join diversity clubs, volunteer opportunities, sports, and college readiness programs. I played soccer, cheerleading, volunteered in National Honor Society, Key Club, Poly club, & Link Crew.One change that I would like to see & implemented is more access to the counselors because I would never be able to find them at the right time & admin was not as strict. Students would go off campus,when not allowed,yet admin did not do much to stop students, and the aftermath of the actions were not dealt with seriously. Inderkum is a welcoming campus & has been a great experience. Thanks to Inderkum, I am who I am today & am motivated to further my education, explore & experience!

This school offers a great selection of academic programs. Most notable, the IB program and the CECA program. If a student is attending classes within these programs then the classes are intimate and the students are placed in a competitive learning environment where students are, for the majority of the time, respectful and participant. However, the classroom environment for students not part of these programs is drastically different. Many students lack respecting their teachers and do not mind disrupting the class. If interested in this school, definitely consider the academic programs. As far as school events, Inderkum definitely, all hands down, has the best events that are fun semi-afforable.
This school is extremely diverse and they support all kinds of people. There are plenty of clubs to choose from, and they are growing every day! In regards to academics, the school is an IB World school and it provides many AP classes. From my experience, the IB courses were far more rigorous than the AP classes, but they prepare you for college. The football team is amazing as well as the band program.

The only complaint I have is the food. The food is very minimal and the preparation of it could be much better. I'd say, bring your own lunch.
