Infinity Institute Reviews
Rating 3.55 out of 5 44 reviews
I am currently a senior at Infinity Insititute. The school holds a ton of diversity and has a sense of community due to the school being a little bit small. There are many knowledgeable teachers who do a great job in providing and teaching prestigious material. However, outside of academics, the school is a bit boring.
I've made the best friends in this school. Classes are challenging enough to the point where it can become overwhelming. Teachers are overall nice, but the college prep could be improved. I feel like the "college prep" that there is mostly prepares you for the amount of material, not really other factors that could be useful such as programs, community service projects, long-term projects, and the like.
There is a lot of work and stress at Infinity. Over the years it has became very unorganized and it is trama to add to your kids. Your kids will learn a lot, but the amount of stress is not worth it.
Infinity Institute is a high academic achieving school and pushes their scholars to work hard to reach their goals.
went to infinity for my whole middle school. overall wasnt horrible but it wasnt the best. firstly, the communication is horrible. there would be events and things that no one would know about because no one is sending out emails or reminding us whats going on. one of the main things ive heard myself saying during middle school is "i dont know, they never told us." secondly the building is really small and old. its not the best for a school but i cant complain because the school probably doesnt get much money. then the events + extra curriculars, theres nothing to talk about because theres basically none. they have sports occasionally but as someone whos not a sports girl there was nothing for me to do. lastly, the teachers was probably the worst part out of all of this. half of the time there was no teacher and the other half the teachers didnt care for the students. however my friends i made @ ii helped me get thru all of this horrid experience and im glad im not going here for hs.
The experience was good overall, the only downside was that the school was a smaller school. Due to this, there was less opportunities for extra curriculars such as sports. In the future, I would like to see the building of the school change to provide a proper gym and would also help the classroom size as well.
I would like to see changes in the facility. The academics are pretty good. There can be more of a variety with the courses, however.
I had a vision of what high school was going to look like for me. I was expecting an experience like the High School Musical movies. Where you sat on the benches for lunch, went to homecoming, and watch boys play American football with cheerleaders dancing and cheering them on. However, my reality was shattered after stumbling upon Infinity Institute. This school solely focuses on academics, if you are looking for fun, aesthetic high school years, Infinity is not the place to go. Despite the fact I wanted to go home every day, the people I met here are unforgettable. The friends I made here have been great people and they are the only reason I gave up the idea of transferring. We have found ways to turn boring moments into fun. I have laughed, cried, and heal in this school. The academic expectations in this school have made me stronger, I feel ready for college. I know I will be fine no matter what happens.
I like how academic-based Infinity Institute is. I would like to see the clubs and sports change. I think they need to have more sport clubs and a sports team.
Infinity is a great school if you strive for academic excellence. Most teachers are very nice, and all efforts and achievements during the school year will be worth it in the end.
all though it can be very challenging, and it is not the cleanest it still has something to offer. Try your best to not let the grade letter or amount of work you do define you.
this school is a small school, that is all honors, it’s difficult but the work is doable, everyone knows each other, and it is also a blue ribbon school.
I like how Infinity is a small school so everyone knows each other. However, it might take you a while to get used to the amount of work, especially if you're a middle schooler.
There were great teachers being involved every day with students. Made great friends who turned into family.
This school is a very academic based school. If you are looking for a normal high school experience, do not come here. There are no sports or football games. Otherwise, they have the best teachers and prepare you academically for college and the future. In comparison to other high schools in the district, the work is definitely more difficult. After adjusting to the work, it is definitely worth it because everything else seems so easy. The habits you learn here will carry over to college and allow you to be the best student you can be.
Infinity Institute provides a small, rigorous academic environment that helps prepare its students for college. The workload can be overwhelming at first but is possible to manage over time. The quality of their academics varies depending on the teacher. During my time in Infinity, the administration has shuffled through questionable teachers in their science departments. Diversity is outstanding but I guess that's to be expected of any school in Jersey City. One sector that they do lack is in sports and clubs which is a problem for any student wishing to shape their overall character. This can be fixed however with participation in outside organizations, classes, and hobbies.
I was bullied in this school. By many people and it was not handled correctly. Majority of the teachers are fine, just fine but to name a few good ones would be hard. The middle school social studies teachers are the best, and so are the science teachers. I don't like the administration, since they did not handle situation properly and I feel they mean to do good but don't get it. As people the admin are nice and respectful as humans but wont listen to your claims and take them seriously. The school offers barely any sports, or extra clubs. There was a stabbing while I was there, and a gun threat which caused half the school to leave for that day. Also, admit students in a beginning year like 6th or 9th grade so they can have a established friend group, after a while the school gets cliquey and tribal.
