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!

International Polytechnic High School is an amazing school for anyone that is serious about his or her education.

The institution of learning provides students with a challenging project-based curriculum that is sure to prepare anyone that is willing to go through it. The school is STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) based, so, with the exception of the drama elective, it is very little in terms of high arts. The project-based curriculum, supplemented by the amazing facilities, helps prepare students to tackle problems in the real world.

Overall, This school is a great school for anyone that is taking a true interest in his or her education and searching for a successful career in a STEM field.
Most high schools structure their curriculums around improving the students' test scores, with little focus on applied learning or college preparation. International Polytechnic High School focuses on putting students in a college-like setting, teaching them to apply the knowledge learned through individual and group projects. Throughout my years at IPoly, I have completed many group projects, all of which have tested time management and application of knowledge. Most of the projects require outside research, and time schedules often need to be adjusted for work outside of school hours.
