When I first started attending this school it was full of certified teachers and principals who came to work striving better for the kids. The school had set a high standard and name for itself. However, we are losing students yearly rate. Our high has been hopeless for us students. Although they've tried bringing new sports such as soccer we still need more resources and connections to be a successful high school. I would like to see the school become better when it comes to seniors and their senior year. Also high school in general. We need to go back to that thriving school that everybody loved.
Some of my best times were middle school due to the relationship I gained I’ll say the worst of it was during covid-19 because I wasn’t able to really get the dedication for school.
It is a great learning environment to be in and it made me a better person overall including the staff and students that helped me.
I love that student and staff here at international academy are very kind and welcoming; our school feels just like a family. What’s saddening is that the school is so unorganized. Everything from dances to how students will get their club and sports attire is so last minute. We seniors have been starting to take things into our hands by talking to our staff about student government, something that we should’ve been had.
It’s a alright school but i would not go there but i been here to build love and support for me to get to the college and be ready because this is a college prep school
I love how they enforce rules. I love how the students get to participate on a lot of things such as SLO(student life organizations). I love how their getting us ready for college. They make sure we are students before anything else such as athletics. It is a very good school if your child, can take tests a lot. They put a lot of thoughts of having the younger students involved with the older ones. For example the older ones being mentors to kindergarten through sixth graders.
Teachers are very caring , they are helpful when you need them most andnice people. The learning is great but yet gives you a challenge ... chances to push yourself further. Allow you to understand your abilities.
It was amazing my whole life being there. They taught me so much stuff school wise and life wise. I learned that just talking stuff out would be a lot better then just jumping into conclusions and I also learned a lot of ways of helping people out being at IAF. I done a lot of helping in my IAF days.
I have been attending IAF since Kindergarten. The curriculum is one of the best in town. I like the fact that it is a college prep school so they are prepping us for college.
I have been at IAF since Kindergarten so, I've been able to see all of the changes (both good and bad). I've learned a lot of lessons and met many great friends and teachers during my time there. Though IAF is one of the best schools in Flint, there's always room for improvement. Better training could be implemented for staff, better food options could be given to students, and "Student Management Coordinators (SMC's)" could find less harsh consequences to give students.
International Academy of flint challenges you to work harder in your academics. If you have never been challenged before in Academics, International is the place to be. You can guarantee curriculum that will make you work and have to think. International is not a school where you don’t have to study for an upcoming test, because you WILL need to study. Something that should change at International is that even though it is a college prep school it can sometimes be too challenging. You could have 3 tests a day or have 6 tests in one week. It can put stress on students, especially those involved in extracurricular activities such as sports.
international academy of flint is an good educational school they help you prepare for college. also they help you grow as a person they expect a lot from you at a young age that can either make you or break you. i have been going here since the third grade and i've been able too maintain the system and grow as a person.
International Academy of flint is a great school for all ages out of my 12 years attending IAF I never seen a case of bullying. In my opinion it is the most challenging out of all the schools in Flint and that's why I like it. Great teachers, it is a college prep.
I've been going to International Academy of Flint since I was in sixth grade. I am now a Junior in high school and i can say with complete assuredness that these years have been amazing and have been really preparing me for life. I wouldn't change anything about it at all.
It’s okay . it’s good educational wise , but you have to start their in kindergarten. it’s not bad though . the teachers could be better , their attitudes and the students attitudes always clash. which is not good if your actually trying to get your education. but the lunch could be better. I’ve been going here since 2005. it has changed a lot. In regards to teachers , schooling and the buildings. The classes aren’t that big. it’s rougly 30 students in each class with one or two teachers. The director is okay too.
International Academy of Flint is a college prep charter school with great academics to help high school students prepare for college and real life. Staff os strict on expectations from the students for the simple fact that we are not like most Flint schools. We are one of top schools in Flint Michigan. I am grateful to attend here.
It's nice and homey. The school is becoming more like an actual high school, which is great. It's becoming bigger and better day by day. The community is starting to become more involved with the school which helps. The athletics and academics are blossoming in full effect.
