Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics & Humanities Reviews

Academics are rigorous and challenging while still remaining at a manageable level in order to push students to excel. Student's safety is guaranteed and having the resources of Ball State University available to us was extremely beneficial to my education and I think taking Ball State Classes helped me in both handling collegiate level academics and in giving my college application a leg up over my peers. One of the biggest flaws in the Indiana Academy is their mental health support services. Although resources weren't ideal to begin with, in the Fall of 2017 the were NO LICENSED MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELORS available to students for the entire semester. In a stressful and new environment like a residential HS, mental health is a prominent issue among a majority of students. Protocol for students experiencing problems with their mental health is extremely flawed and borderline dangerous. Additionally, discrimination is prevalent and handled just as poorly as mental health.

The Indiana Academy has been one of the best decisions of my life. However, the administration is extremely corrupt, we, the students, are nothing but dollar signs. The administration threatens teachers with pay cuts when they don't agree with a new rule, they tolerate bullying and racism, and they put their own paycheck in front of us students and teachers. The Academy administration condones racism, bluntly honest. But, the Academy community does not. Students have created petitions for a stronger rule against racism, clubs have met together to address the problems, and even parents are getting involved. The administration is the only sour point of this school. The faculty and staff are excellent and truly care about students. I strongly recommend this school to everyone. It challenges your academic ability and your humanity.
The Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Humanities has amazing teachers. As a student, I can meet with them during their office hours when I am not in class. The academy has classes set up like college, allowing for time to meet with these teachers. A majority of the classes are college level and it can be challenging as a high school student to handle. However, the academic and personal growth gained from this experience is worth it. I would like to see more eating options than just DS on the weekdays and Tally on the weekends. (the atrium being open on friday night doesn't count) Eating the same food all the time is not good or healthy. On the weekends at Tally, the salad bar is too expensive and constantly eating Taco Bell and french fries makes me feel sick.
