Innovation Academy Charter School Reviews

I love this school! The small size allowed me to get close to my teachers. There is nothing like getting taught by someone who knows you well and can help you with your specific needs. Also, the school is always changing for the better. This fall I attended a conference run by the head of the school and it included teachers, parents, alumni, board members, and administration. The conference was about improving the school for the nest generations of students. I love that our school actively looks for opportunities to be better. I just can't express my love for this school and how much it has made me love learning. Every project is hands on and intuitive; they let us figure things out on our own and that makes it stick and be more enjoyable. This school has been the best fit for me in every aspect, the culture, the education, and absolutely everything.

Innovation Academy is a small, inclusive, and extremely closely-knit community consisting of parents, teachers, faculty, and ~800 students. Although its small size prevents it from offering a great deal of sports teams or AP-level courses, they make up for it with their well-established teacher/student relationships which ensure that every student receives the individual assistance they need.

Sitting on a large 200-acre campus, Innovation Academy is perhaps best known for its project-based nature, which shifts educational focus and goals from increasing test-taking skills to bettering project producing and presentation giving ability.
As a 5-12 institution with approximately 800 students, it has these qualities:

Reformations are sometimes student-driven; staff are knowledgeable, conscientious, and overall pleasant to be around; HS courses are more or less elective-based; exceptionally low bullying rate; very accommodating with gifted children and those with special needs (I know from experience), friendly atmosphere, and high quality dual enrollment options.

In addition, there is currently one AP class (Calculus AB/BC) (test-optional), a nationally ranking athlete, and a transgender bathroom (if that's important to you).

Science lab and outdoor track are also neat recent additions.
