The teachers are either amazing or pretty good, with very few exceptions! The size of the school allows for students to develop meaningful relationships with teachers, and they're always really supportive. Speaking of support, the student environment is unparalleled. Students learn to work together and underclassmen are usually heavily supported and guided by the upperclassmen. The clubs are easy to set up and vary widely in options, so there's something for everyone (and if there's not, you can just make a club)! I will say that the environment is extremely stressful for freshmen and juniors, but not impossible to accomplish. It's a challenge! The biggest thing I could hope for is a wider range of available subjects, or more freedom to pick our IB courses, because the school, despite being a liberal arts high school, leans heavily into History and Literature as mandatory courses and leaves STEM students with limited options to explore. Otherwise, it's a really good school!

I love our school! I love the teachers, the students, the classes, and the vibe. While not everyone is as hard-working as they said, the percentage of serious and diligent students is much higher than at any public school that I've ever seen or experienced. The smaller student body and administration means that all of us are able to be on a more personal level with each other. When I was an underclassmen, I had little to no trouble talking to upperclassmen. Now, I talk to underclassmen all the time.
The International Academy is a wonderful school in terms of college readiness. The IB program is very rigorous which shares similar qualities that colleges have; however, the school lacks a variety of classes as the school is small in size. On the other hand, the sizing of the school allows a strong connection to be present between students and teachers which I absolutely love! Overall a great school filled with awesome teachers
