International Academy Reviews

The International Academy is not just another high school, it's a community of kind and driven students, passionate teachers, and wonderful staff! Most people here are genuinely driven to learn and help others reach their full potential. The atmosphere is amazing, especially the tight bonds between each class, and even between the underclassmen and upperclassmen (unlike many other schools)! There are always teachers here to help if you ask, because they WANT to see you succeed. Furthermore, the Olympics we hold twice a year allow each class to battle it out for the title of first place and have a great time! The academics are also very focused and a little difficult at times, but that's the price to get an IB Diploma! Well worth it!

The International Academy has outstanding academics, as the school fully prepares students for college and educates them to be fully rounded students with various community service requirements, creative challenges, and extended essays and internal assessments. While the school is very advanced academically, the rigor of the school often becomes straining to students. Students that plan to attend to IA must recognize the expectations and be prepared for a mental and emotional challenge to keep up with the international baccalaureate program.
International Academy is an IB school. The curriculum is quite rigorous - a place for students willing to challenge themselves. Since it's a small school, with only 600 students or so, there is a sense of intimacy among both students and staff. Teachers are very approachable. They are almost always available for one-on-one chats and assistance. Not only are students able to build closer relations with each other, but also with their teachers. At International Academy, teachers really do become students' friends.
However, International Academy does have its imperfections. As a small, and relatively new school (I attend the east campus - the newest one), there aren't as many clubs as a normal high school. But then again, this provides the perfect opportunity for hardworking students to create and manage their own clubs for something they're passionate in.
