International High School of New Orleans Reviews

International High School is not the best academic school. Starting with the counselor, she is unorganized and preoccupied. I ask my counselor to send my high school transcript to a specific university, she said she would get to that, weeks has pass and I receive a letter saying that I am missing my high school transcript. The next day I went to room and remind her again, I had to stay in that room until she did it, it took my whole class period. Many student struggle with this situation as a senior. The system is poor, we have many fights in the first week of school,we had cops and police dogs to come in our school because they believe that the student are selling drugs. No matter how cops comes in the school will never change. The system only covers the school but it should focus more on the student,these two things are the main cause of destroying the whole school.

International High School of New Orleans has a very diverse population not only among students but teachers as well. It has a comfortable atmosphere that helps you blend in along with everyone else instead of being nervous when you first join in the school. Unlike most foreign language courses, International let you learn in a total of five different languages which are all taught by native speakers. The school also has Foreign Exchange students where many students would take interest to communicate with them and learn more about their background. International is one of the few high school that cooperates with the International Baccalaureate Program. The program offer advance courses that ensure better academic, social, and emotional qualities for students that join the program. International has a lot of options that benefits students given the many choices it has to offer. It has been enjoyable to experience new cultures, education, and interaction within this school.
My overall experience at International High School has been pretty good. I love the academics part of it and how the teachers are always willing to help the students. I’m also happy that they offer dual enrollment courses to students. Which is a big help to earn college credit while I’m still in high school. The only thing I wish that they could change is the extracurricular activities. I wish they had cheerleading,dance,majorette,football and baseball like most schools have. Another thing is that the administration should learn how to communicate information better with the students. They always tell us things at the last minute and we as students don’t have enough time to prep for it. Other than than that , I believe I’m satisfied with my school.
