I have had a great experience at International Studies Preparatory Academy. It has been an institution that has taken care of each one of its students in a professional and fraternal way at the same time. Being a High School with international agreements, cultural diversity is an aspect to be highlighted. It allows students of the French, Italian and Spanish program to exchange experiences with each other. There is a great awareness about many reasons, such as the use of tobacco or alcohol in young people. Also, security is taken very seriously. The teachers are mostly excellent. The administration really listens to the students and do their part correctly. The preparation given is very good, students usually go to the outside world with more than average preparation and a very broad cultural knowledge. The only aspect in which it fails is in the sports area, since for a very small High School that lacks an outdoor campus it is not possible to have teams of any kind.

International Studies Preparatory Academy is a wonderful high school where the staff is very helpful and the teachers take the time to make sure that the students are exactly where they are supposed to be academically. Class sizes are relatively small, which means that students are able to receive individualized help from the teachers. The Spanish, Italian and French language programs are exceptional, as they challenge the students and push them to not only study the language, but the culture of the country as well. The school is also not only pristine, but safe as well. The school has students from all over the world, meaning that the diversity students learn about does not only come from the classroom, but through their interactions among peers. There are police officers present in the building at all times. Security cameras are heavily used to ensure the safety of students and staff.
ISPA is unique in terms of the small amount of students we have, and the...strange campus we're on. Practically a five floor repurposed office building. It's nestled in the heart of South Miami. It's is kind of a gem, considering it's the cleanest public high school in the area, our teachers are elite, and our staff pays close attention to us and helps. I'd really only complain about our lack of flexibility and choice. We're so small that we can barely afford a thing, let alone proper equipment for certain classes...
