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!

My experience at international high school was overall the best, I’ve attended this high school for 4 long but short years. And I’ve learned so much from not only the teachers in the classes but outside the classes from students, guidance counselors, even the principals. And going to that school changed my life before I attended international I was going down a path nobody wanted me to go down and then it just finally hit me and it was time for a change and international changed me and molded me to be great and now I’m a high school graduate going to college in the fall. If I hadn’t changed because of international I don’t know where I’d be, and I thank the school for helping and be there every step of the way.
International High School is good high school for a more friendly atmosphere. Since it is a smaller school, the many students do form bonds with one another and help each other out. The teachers are all very helpful and work well with students and try to comply with student needs as best as they possibly can. Some students however, regard high school as a waste of time and it shows as they walk through the school. They show no remorse in their lack of interest for the school or their education. However, in my experience International High School has been a great school where I feel safe and feel as though I am getting a good education.
