Ivy Academia used to be a good school for a while but then things went downhill. There food went from great to crap. Their curriculum feels like they bought it from the dollar store. Do you really want your child for a whole semester to learn what they learned last year. Their courses are stupid you don't even have many options. You can only learn Spanish for high school(hello theirs Latinos that want to learn more languages). You probably will have the same teacher for two different subjects and they won't even know what to teach. The teachers are not disciplined they allow students on phones, curse , and racism slip by them. Their are some teachers that don't even teach anything and let the students do whatever they want.. And they let the stupidest kids pass. If you want good grades your going to have to be a teachers favorite (stupid).Don't even get me started on some nasty things that little kids see from the older kids. Cheeks, profanity, and intense make-outs.
I graduated from Ivy Academia Entrepreneurial Charter HighSchool back in June 2016 and I would say that my experience being in a small charter school from 5th-12th grade molded me to take initiative when discussing college classes in small groups. I was able to receive one-on-one education with some of the nicest teachers I've had. They were extremely helpful to students that reached out and encouraged the students, that might not have felt comfortable, to feel that their classrooms were a safe space.
My experience at Ivy Academia was good overall. Although the school itself is pretty small and does not have that many students, I believe that it allows teachers to work closer with students, therefore readying the students for the future. Making sure that they fully understand the concepts being taught.
I had a great experience at Ivy academia. I gained many relationships with my friends and or teachers. I really like the way that the teachers connected with the students and made an effort to have all students pass. The teachers showed care and love towards everyone.
I liked the student-teacher ratio, and how the framework of teaching in business classes is from a realistic perspective. It teaches students the value of communication, collaboration, and consistency.
I have been at the school from the 4th grade. I many teachers have left due to funding that the school recieved, not getting paid, or just not having the resources to teach. Though the school tries, its not the best school in the district for LAUSD and Charter system.
My experience at this school so far has not been the greatest but it has its moments. I met some of the most influential people in my life at this school.
Most of the teachers at this school enjoy what they do and do want their students to succeed.
The academics at this school are average considering the smallness of the school. Most of the teachers however are very good at what they do.
Since the school is very small there are only a few extracurricular activities students can join
Since it is a very small school, it is harder to get everyone involved and enthusiastic during school events. However, the students are nice and the teachers are very knowledgeable when there is one.
Most of the teachers are very knowledgeable and approachable. Since it is a very small school, every student gets attention from their teacher. Overall, they are fair and considerate of students.
The security is okay and the students feel safe to be at school.
Some of the teachers are great at what they do and some go above and beyond to help out the students.
It okay. not the best. Sometimes the principals don't even listen to our concerns about a teacher or a specific student that ruins the class for everybody. I often have to loose valuable class time from the teacher trying to deal with an unmanageable student.
I tried to participate in every club that was possible but there wasn't much options. I was in national honor society for 4 years straight and that was probably the most prestigious club there. then they started to take all these people who didn't deserve to be in and then the club just lost severe value. it was embarrassing.
Before entered 6th grade, the school was AMAZING. we had so much support and funding for all our activities which was good because we were a business school. after 6th grade, something with our principal happened and our school just went down hill from there. Most of my classmates left the school in 7th grade but we are all together again in high school. this is where I see how undeveloped my skills were compared t them who left the school.
