International Studies Preparatory Academy Reviews

It’s a great school with great opportunities in academics. It’s a language school where students excel in Spanish, French, or Italian. Teachers are well prepared and knowledgeable. Administration cares about students and knows everyone on a first name basis. Students are expected to maintain a high GPA since it’s a magnet school and they must apply to be able to attend. All classes are honor classes and students are able enroll in AP courses as well. During junior and senior year, students may do dual enrollment where they get a head start on college for free. Accessibility to counselors and support personnel is easily available. And last, courses are rigorous and students are recommended for accelerated programs like Capstone which is very similar to IB. In general, is a fantastic school to attend if a student prefers a smaller school setting.

I like everything about International Studies Preparatory Academy, it's an amazing school with nothing wrong with it and I really enjoyed my high-school experience here. The only main thing that there wasn't is a lack of a sports program (such as football and basketball teams) and the small size of the school which really isn't an issue with me. Other than that I really love this school because of its academics, college readiness, friendly students from different cultural backgrounds and the friendly staff there.
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.
