International Polytechnic High School Reviews

Really great atmosphere! As a soon to be junior I can honestly and truthfully say that the teachers really do care about their students. Classes are engaging and all around enjoyable. Though the later is true, this school is most definitely not for everyone. It is entirely project based, meaning that you will almost always be tasked with working alongside others. Groups are rarely chosen by the students, and are almost always designed to push students both academically and socially. In addition, iPoly provides many programs designed for students who wish to begin taking official college courses prior to graduation. Truthfully the only downside is the lack of sports. Though iPoly does not have any sports teams, it does have plenty of engaging clubs and electives, such as drama and dance. All in all, iPoly is pretty great!

Being part of the International Polytechnic High School community has allowed me to provide self growth from things I would have never imagined doing such as acting, presenting in a room of 144 students, and attending college classes. Through the different teaching styles of critical thinking tasks I have found myself motivated to not let fear take over but to persevere on as I am tasked with more challenging curricular. Personally, what I like about International Polytechnic High School is the community and how everyone works as one through assigned group projects to either make a student produced film or play. What I would like to see change is the fact that there needs to be more communication between admin and the students because often times there are things that are misinterpreted because of the lack of communication. Overall, I'd say that it's a decent school but it has it's pros and its cons unfortunately, the cons outweigh the pros.
My experience at International Polytechnic High School was amazing, fun, and fullfilling. Lots of great memories were built in that school and everyone was always involved. It truelt felt like a unique school with the amount of positive energy in the building. An improvement would be administration's involvement with helping students for college and leading students to the right direction without dropping their confidence. Its good to understand that you should go above and beyond but students who struggle a little more than others shouldn't live wuth the fear that they won't succeed.
