The 4 years went by fast, they had many programs such as national honors society and trio upward bound. The also have curriculum based off 5 academies which give us skills for the really.
I started attending Innovation Central my freshman year in 2020 during covid. Entering High School meeting people through the computer was a real pain, but the teachers made it all worth it because they kept saying their encouraging words everyday that made school so much better. I love that the teachers really make bonds with students. As a rising senior I now have a pick of teachers who i would love to write my recommendation letter. I love the bonds I have created with almost the whole school. What I wished that changed was the construction currently our school is getting renovations done and I don’t like that sometimes I have to ask my teacher to repeat something or having to nudge them and annoy them that I can’t hear them. I love that they want to give us a better school experience but I wish that we found a much more suitable time for all this. Other than that I really love my school because I entered being myself and I have not changed that what so ever .
For me, this school is very easy. The teachers are very relaxed, and generaly assign no homework. This has made my highschool experience very pleasant, with a very well mental health.
Innovation Central has given me the opportunity to truly embrace my skills and find my way through my academic career. Innovation is allowing me to have the opportunity to have my EMS license by the time I graduate in may setting me up for success all around! The teachers have been so nice, welcoming and helpful, they've allowed me to expand my horizons when it comes to furthering my education in university. Without this school and the help from all of the staff and students I wouldn't be here today being able to have the opportunity to further my education and make a difference in the world!
This school was a great experience all my years of high school. I like Innovation Central because they offer a variety of academies to join like Design and Construction, Health and Sciences, Teaching and Learning, Business and Law.
From a freshie to a senior, the highschool experience at my particular high school is not exactly what I envisioned. Over the course of my time studying there, I realize that it was just what I envisioned Union High School to be like: A school with a boring variety of students and no excitement at all. The teachers for the most part did their job, but some could definitely improve on intriguing the students more. One teacher in particular, who has been at the school for almost 2 decades, uses the exact same teaching worksheets every year! That has to be rough not only on the students but the teacher as well! Speaking of decades, the school has not changed in structure, and it's necessary for this school to do so because it's so old and it looks out of place in the area it is located in. Overall I expected more at a place named "Innovation" Central high school, but was merely disappointed.
I like the teachers and like how during the time on the pandemic that they give students a chance to catch up on homework.
My school has a lot of potential, it is in a poor district. The teachers are amazing and they offer so much help outside of class for students. I switched out of another school but this school has changed me into a better person. They are so welcoming to everyone and inclusive. The principal Mr.Frost learns everyones' name an greets them. He understands equality and treats everyone fairly. There are no favorites. Not everything is perfect the school is very old and it makes it feel gloomy sometimes, and the students can be trouble makers. The students are college focused but the teachers push them and try their hardest to encourage students. Overall, i really like my school besides how it looks and the setting,
My experience at Innovation Central High School was great! I had very great help from my teachers and other staff members. You would get more involved with them through meetings, clubs at school and after school, assemblies, workshops, and even so many field trips. The people at Innovation Central High School really let you know that they care about you and your future, they would organize the best field trips for you to experience any careers or colleges/universities. These field trips will make all students explore and want to learn more. I am go glad that I took those opportunities because I look forward to my bright future now! I could really say now that all because of Innovation Central High School I will someday become a pediatrician.
In my opinion is a descent school with a goo diversity, and culture. This school always celebrate students achievements and gives them the resources to succeed. My only problem with this school is how dirty the building is and the lack of air conditioning in parts of the building. Another thing I don't like is how we don't have sports, only clubs that aren't so great because they are stressful.
Most of the teachers are very nice and helping. There’s a few that are hard to get along with and pass their classes. However this school provides its students with amazing opportunities (jobs, field trips, and more)!
Every thing is honestly great about Innovation Central. The teachers are very nice and very understanding. They know when something’s up and they have everything under control which is great.
Innovation was a good school. But like most public schools it lacks resources for students to attend college.
It's a good school that offers many opportunities for underprivileged students to shine despite what others may think. The only bad thing about the school is that the students could sometimes be a bit much in terms of behavioral problems, although this is mostly true for the under class men.
Great school for inner city children. Good teachers that teach the curriculum very well and enjoy working with students.
My experience at Innovation Central High School has been great. The school offers four academies: Business, Health & technology, design & construction, and engineering. As a student there, I have been taking the courses of engineering. We go through the process of basic engineering to actually building them through revit. One thing I would love to change about the school is having sports. This school does not have enough funding for students to be involved in sports and it really bothers a lot of athletes.
Central does a wonderful job of keeping the family atmosphere alive. There are four major academies: health sciences, design and construction, modern engineering, and last but not least business and entrepreneurship. Throughout the last four years of your academic career you are trained and become accustomed to the career field of your choice.
