This school is a great place. It was just ranked the #1 high school in Connecticut by U.S. News and World Report and The Washington Post (and the #34 BEST high school in the USA). It has a strong focus on academic rigor. The IB Diploma Programme is expected of all students and now the school is introducing the IN Middle Years Programme in grades 9 and 10. The work ethic among the students is amazing.Everyone knows everyone and the teachers and students accept and support one another in this extremely diverse learning environment.

This is one the greatest schools in the entire country. The environment is set up to ensure ultimate success in the IB program. The teachers are willing and dedicated, the students are friendly and accepting. There are endless benefits for you if you attend CIBA. I recommend this school to anyone who wants to excel in life and succeed.

After sending two of my children through this program, I can say I have not seen a better high school to challange and encourage students who want to excell. The students are friendly and accepting of others. The teachers are dedicated.

The community in this school is like no other I've seen. The students are accepting and friendly, to every student. The education is also very good, and everyone feels a strong sense of a family at the IB.

I am a student, and I absolutely love it here thus far, I've been here for four year. It is hard work, but it is rewarded; I would reccommend this for anybody, even slackers.

The Academic programs are great, especially Biology, History and English. Math is relatively weaker. The best thing about the school is the investment teachers make in the lives of their students, and their unremitting committment to academic excellence. This is not for the faint of heart, but for students who are interested in learning and motivated to work hard, it is an incredible educational experience. Music opportunities are quite limited; the art program is stronger. Sports are available throught East Hartford High. Other extracurricular activities include student government, Mock Trial and Model U.N., but all of these are in early stages of development. Parents are involved through a PTA -like organization devoted largely to fund-raising. Clearly there is much to be done here, but this school can restore your faith in meaningful and rigorous public education.
