This school is ok. Whenever you get a few assignments behind the teacher are very quick to tell EVERYONE your business (even to other students), its quite embarrassing. Although there is a few nice and helpful the est are quite rude and unwilling to help. I've always been a good student in school and i've always earned good grades but since i've been here i feel very unsafe in the area and unmotivated to learn. a
If you are looking for a decent high school experience, I would not recommend iHigh Virtual Academy. Although it is an "independent" school, you still have to teach yourself through each and every subject. (The following is from personal experience) Whenever I ask a teacher for help with any of my assignments, they direct me toward the use of a website, rather than bothering to help themselves. There is a great lack of teacher-student communication as well. Even worse, the teachers are quite rude (to be honest) and will treat you differently if you look a certain way (regarding appearance) or if you don't "fit-in". Also, if you are looking for a decently-financed high school, I would look elsewhere, as the main building is nothing more than a trailer, while the rest of the campus is a complex of small abandoned buildings.
Excellent school with dedicated teachers, students and staff. I appreciate the 1:1 access, it's like having a personal tutor. Better than sitting in a class with 40 other kids trying to get my questions answered.
We are SO happy with this school, and that we made the decision to enroll our 10th grade daughter here. We knew that she was not performing as well as she could at our neighborhood school that is very overcrowded. She was just not getting very distracted and was not getting the help that she needed. She has been at iHigh for about 2 weeks and we have seen significant improvement in both her grades and confidence. She is learning the invaluable tool of becoming a independent/virtual learner, which is so important today. When she needed help in Algebra I drove her down (their teachers are available 8-3 each day) to get help. She was beaming telling me that she had TWO teachers sit with her until she understood the concept. We are a military family and also appreciate that *most* high schools within San Diego Unified partner with iHigh so that students can dual enroll for extra credits or credit recovery to help meet graduation requirements when PCSing state to state. I love that the administration really GETS that one size does NOT fit all when it comes to education. If you have a high school student that is struggling, I highly recommend giving iHigh a chance.
Seems like the teachers at this school have no grasp on the reality of high school students. Take a walk around San Diego High School and you will have an idea how it really is today. The teachers are fine if all involvement is over the computer.
As an honor roll student, I felt the teachers were more concerned about themselves than the students. The principal seems to lack the experience working with high school students.
My son is going to be graduating in a couple of weeks from ihigh. I have paid thousands of dollars to private schools throughout his life and never received the individual attention that we have at ihigh. We love this school and I would recommend it to anybody who is looking for something flexible for their child while keeping the highest quality of education.
