The environment is created to encourage students to do the best they can and have a plan for their future. This includes the teachers being very invested int he students inside and outside of the classroom, the classrooms designed in such a way to enable students to work efficiently, and admin/teachers/college counselor making resources on colleges and scholarships plainly available. One thing that should improve is student involvement, meaning creating multiple opportunities for the students to lead the school not just admin. Over the last year, I have seen an improvement of this.

Intrinsic is a great school to go to if you want a school that will give you the best help for life after high school. Since the school is small, a lot of things are limited like sports, clubs, and events. The majority of teachers at Intrinsic are great and are actually excited to come to school and teach. One problem is that the school teacher middle and high school so the high schoolers feels as though they never left middle school and they feel like they are not getting that high school experience one has always dreamt of.
The experience at Intrinsic Charter High School is really great. Everyone is friendly and is very respectful towards each other. The staff and teachers look out for the students academically . The school helps the student a lot by preparing them for PSAT's, SAT's and other major tests and also college. The only thing I would change is having lockers within the school. Students have to carry their items with them everyday throughout every class. And it's a lot of weight for a student. And also more space within the classrooms for students to move in.
