From my experience at iSchool High, I can honestly say that the school is everything you could ask for in a college preparatory school. The mixture of high school and college courses establishes the ability to manage heavy loads of coursework in the students. The self-paced work schedule allows for the students to become comfortable with managing time and deadlines. If you are looking for a school that will push you to be your best self and help you to become a better learner, this is the school for you.

It is a unique experience attending iSchool High. It is very different from a traditional school as it is located inside of a community college so if tradition is something you're not fond of for whatever personal reason, it is a great place for students to go.

Options for extracurricular activities are virtually endless. The combined clubs from both the college and high school allow students to explore their interests.

Academics aren't limited to dual credit as a few students and I self-studied AP tests. The design of the high school courses allows students to complete high school courses earlier and begin the following semester/year in college courses. This design also permits students to graduate early if they desire to.

While it is a small school (300-400), communication is also possible with the college student opening up the door even more for social interaction. Even within the campus walls of the high school, the student body is as diverse as it gets.
iSchool was good for mature kids who wanted to get ahead, it gave us freedom in going to college classes and gaining credit, and it also did a very good job of preparing us for college in a low-stress environment. In my senior year, these freedoms started being revoked and replaced with pointless mandatory things, such as presentations from colleges I am not interested in attending and Friday lectures on traits such as "bravery" and "character." Also, I am required to do things like send home parent emails every Friday reporting my progress and keep track of every grade from my classes in a spreadsheet. These things are not necessarily bad, just tedious and annoying if I have actual work to attend to. In conclusion, it's a good school and a fantastic opportunity to get ahead; however, due to requirements and regulations, I am regularly treated like a child with the workload of a college student.
