International Studies Charter High School Reviews

I spent my entire High School life at ISCHS. At first I was hesitant in going there when searching for a high school to go to. But once I got there and integrated myself I absolutely loved it. I attended ISCHS to follow a dual-curriculum program which included the French Baccalaureate High School Diploma and the American High School Diploma. I received a very thorough education in everything needed to succeed. The french program is so good that when I initially went in I barely even knew how to read and write in french, and I only spoke a bit. By my senior year I was passing the French national exams along with my french classmates and passed!
International Studies Charter High School is a fairly small school which lends to the atmosphere of knowing everyone. All your teachers are friendly and you know practically everyone you pass in the halls.
I highly recommend this school.

The quality of this school has gone down over time. All of the great teachers that were once there have left. Not many course offerings. School does not communicate information well, many are not well informed. Clubs and activities are very limited. Security guards are very rude. Teachers communicate well with students and create a great classroom environment. School has little money to provide students with necessities. The school's location should encourage staff to make it safer. Some administration is friendly, but others do not help students. Food in the school is not varied, just hispanic. This limits students who are vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, lactose intolerant.
These past 4 years of my life in International Studies Charter have been life changing. Since, it is an international school, I had the opportunity to to learn and appreciate the culture of the French, Italians and Spanish students. I was amazed on how each culture has their own traditions. In my 4 years of high school, I have been able to differentiate when an individual is speaking French or Italian, which was an ability I did not have before. Throughout middle school and first 3 years of high school I have taken Spanish as my language, however, this year I decided to expand my horizons and take advantage of ISCHS's resources and take an Italian course. I am more than thankful for choosing ISCHS's as my school throughout high school as I will always call it my "home".
