I love this school! Not a lot of people notice it till later, but the International Academy prepares their students for college very well and the teachers are really nice and puts a lot of effort. One thing I would change is that I wish we were more open to opportunities other than school and were more aware of other volunteer services or scholarships. Although we were educationally prepared for college, there was not a lot of information on how to finanacially deal with college.

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 is an intense school. There is an excessive work load in all classes that stem from the IB curriculum. Difficult exams, busy work, and projects help prepare students for college and further academic studies. Most of the teachers are passionate about the information they teach. The school does not have any sports team of its own but does create a sense of community and involvement through clubs and activities (fall and winter Olympics, spring picnic, etc). However, there is not much regard for student mental health and well-being. It seems like the teachers encourage students to spend all of their time on schoolwork to the point where they lack balance.
