My experience was great here and it still is, I just can't wait to graduate and get my life started. My favorite thing to do here was to play volleyball here, I really loved the sport. And the one class I did like was science because I learned a lot in there and Mr.VanDamme is the best I had ever had. And there is nothing I would change about this school.

The school is so small that you cannot choose your friends. You end up knowing your classmates a lot better than you could ever want to. There is the same amount of peer pressure and other social issues as anywhere else. However they are more easily addressed because of the low number of students. This makes it easier to speak to the individual on a more personal level. Rather than speaking to an a huge group of students who aren't paying any attention.
Indus is definitely not a school for everyone. In the past it used to be somewhat glorious, however, in the next few years I would be surprised to see it stay open. The student population is very low and unstable. But the one on one time you get with the teachers is unbeatable.
