Indian River Charter High School Reviews

I am a senior at IRCHS, and I have had an extremely pleasant experience with the curriculum, teachers, and students. At IRCHS, students are placed in homebases which consist of approximately twenty-five students who spend all four years of high school together and have the same homebase teacher who guides them through their whole high school experience. Homebases allow students to feel that they have a supportive on-campus family to share their experiences with and help them grow. Students also have many responsibilities that students at other schools do not have, such as weekly chores, government meetings, volunteer hours, and cultural events which help students mature into well-rounded adults. Overall, the faculty and the curriculum at IRCHS foster a positive learning environment for students that encourages their personal development and prepares them for post-secondary education.

IRCHS has a lot more freedom than most other high schools and the student body is significantly smaller, which is great for those who dislike being around too many people. The students there rarely ever get into trouble and IRCHS is rarely the center of controversy over some safety issue, unlike other high schools. There are more responsibilities that come with attending this school, such as needing ten volunteer hours, a cultural event, and a government meeting every semester in order to stay enrolled. Administration can be a bit difficult to work with, but the teachers there really do care about their students.
Indian River Charter High School has been a very beneficial school to me. I have gained much experience from the teachers here, as well as the coursework. I have been fortunate to take dual enrollment classes here and one of the campuses is directly next to my school, so it was very easy to go and come from high school classes to college classes. I have met many great people here, students, teachers, other faculty, and even guest speakers. All of these people have truly impacted my life, even in small ways. The teachers here genuinely care for your future and will help in anyway possible and the students are like no other group of individuals I have been exposed to. I would not trade my time here for any other high school and I strongly believe my school has prepared me as much as possible for college.
