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 traditional high school, providing the goal of survival, trains an army of careless robots who just so happen to be the future. The is inaccurate in describing the IA; in fact, I have been pushed beyond my self-established limits. The teachers are extremely passionate about their subjects, creating an engaging environment focused upon skill development. As an IB school, the academics are rigorous, supporting determined students with deep passions and motivations. Learning is approached from questions and experiences. We are taught strive for a common goal: to be well rounded, to shape our world by first altering the way we think. I chose to attend the IA because I wanted an academically challenging school that appears with prestige on college applications. Little did I know I would receive so much more: valuable relationships, life lessons and inspiration, and most importantly, the motivation, skills and knowledge to make sense of the world experiences of myself and others.
