As a freshman in International High School, my experience so far is very excellent. In the school, however, there's the International Baccalaureate Programme. It supplies nationally accepted qualification for entry into higher education. In Freshmen and Sophomore years, you will be titled as "Accelerated Cohort" students. Once you get into Junior year, you'll receive your ceremony, an IB diploma, a gold pin that says "IB", titled as "IB" student, and a fun breakfast brunch! As you can see, I'm an Accelerated Cohort Freshmen student. They give you so much passion for learning and having a higher education. With this program, it will lead you to a higher college or university and start your career and future in the best way possible!

As a graduate or an alumni of International High School, I would say things went pretty smooth. I met great friends and have many great memories from that school. All the teachers were very helpful and has helped me become the person I am today. It's been 2 years that I have graduated but it feels like just yesterday I was walking down the halls and catching up with my friends. If I can go back and do things all over again since it really was the best four years of my life. I wouldn't take back anything. The environment and the people helped it be a better experience.
International High School is a welcoming school for everyone, regardless of race, gender , etc. There are also IB classes provided at this school. Despite this, there need to be a few improvements such as the amount of college readiness that this school provides. The administration should also look towards working more closely with the students to help them with college applications and scholarship opportunities.
