International Community School Reviews

I thought that the small community that the students have is good and bad. In some aspects, one can make very good friends when one is with their classmates from 6-12 grade, but there are also negative aspects. Naturally, not all the students will get along and this can create tension. There is also a lot of gossip and drama that will inevitably be spread around the whole school because it is so small. The fierce academic competition sometimes makes students feel bad about themselves because he or she didn’t do as well as another student.

I love my school because of all the supportive teachers that take their time to help you with anything you need and they genuinely care about getting to know each student individually. Also, I love being a part of a big community where I know everyone and everyone knows me. Being apart of the community is a big part of the school, the upperclassmen work together to help the underclassmen succeed in school by helping them deal with academic and personal issues they might be facing. Although the school has a very rigorous curriculum set up to push students continuously, students end up having an easier time in college after high school.
This is truly an amazing establishment. All the teachers care about the students and are so passionate about the subjects that they teach. The small school size allows for many intimate connects to be formed, especially with programs such as Focus Week, where students and teachers take a week to go abroad or try a new activity, and International Night where students, parents and teachers come together to sample foods from all over the world. But, this school is extremely academically rigorous, and it's a big commitment. I think it is 100% worth it; the holistic approach to academics and the work load has pushed me to my limits, and made a better and stronger student.
