Indian River Charter High School Reviews

Their vapa program is outstanding! At charter everyone is accepted for who they are which is amazing there is no discrimination on your race, sexuality, and gender. The teachers work great with the students. Our school is a safe environment because we have randomized drug test; and if the test is positive they just don't kick you out they help get help and have a second chance. My favorite thing about the school is the freedom, we can go off campus, and it makes it so much fun to go to a restaurant with friend during our breaks. We can create our own schedule at charter! We have homebases where we have to do chores once a week. There is about 20 kids in each homebase all in the same grade as you, homebase is basically a teen lounge. When I started they said this was going to be like your second family but I didn't believe them, trust me they were not kidding, these kids are my family.

The school is kind of strict on the rules, which is good and bad. They weed out the kids who don't want to be at the school but their attendance policy is difficult to maintain for many people. When children are sick; many come to school afraid to be on attendance contract. Overall though the school gives a lot of resources such as access to computers and a college readiness class. The teachers are usually pretty helpful and willing to work with different learning styles. The school gives breaks and ample opportunities for dual enrollment. The students are really nice and mostly really dedicated to their grades. The teachers honestly care about you and want you to succeed. We host many fun and interesting events from movie nights to plays and concerts. We do not have many sports only classes with many sports, or golf. The school also host many exchange students and it's pretty cool to befriend them and see different cultures.
While IRCHS didn't receive equal funding from the Indian River School Board during a majority of my time there, their academics and their Visual and Performing Arts program remained the best in the district. While I attended, I was given a very individualized education, in part because my homebase (a class of the same ~20 students that persists throughout all four years), and I was wonderfully prepared for college by the career and senior seminar classes. Now with more money available, the school can improve by further expanding its already great AP and VAPA programs and by increasing opportunities for students.
