iPrep is made for the student who wants to learn independently. By that, I mean that the student will learn from a computer mostly. Most classes are based partially, if not entirely, on the use of FLVS content. . The model of iPrep opposes direct instruction. Although many students will sigh in relief when told they no longer have to listen to "boring" lectures, they should be aware that many iPrep students feel frustrated due to the absence of a teacher. Many students experienced grade drops from middle to high school, largely due to their inability to focus. Many students do transfer. Students should also be aware that iPrep is a small school (around 200 students). There are very little electives offered and the number of AP classes available is somewhat less than in other schools. Most students choose to take dual enrollment classes. A great deal of classes are taken through FLVS. However, FLVS does allow for a student to advance in credits. The environment itself is very safe. I have not heard of any cases of bullying. However, please be aware that typical teenage issues are still present at iPrep. . PS The reviews below appear to be written by faculty.

This is one of the best schools in the state. This school allows you to take your courses at your own pace. If you get far enough ahead, you can finish the course early and take another one. The entire point of this personalized learning is to have the ability to go far beyond what any school can teach you. Where other schools, you have a standard "teacher at the front of class" scenario, in iPrep, you have the ability to go into break-out rooms where you do individualized learning. iPrep is a fun experience where instead of a teacher boring you, friends are around you to keep you entertained. Work always gets done. The only people that don't do well, are the ones that want to leave the school.

Great school! Every student here last year passed the EOC exams, and a very high percentage of students here 94% passed the FCAT exams. There are very rigorous classes here, as all of the classes at this school are composed of either Advanced, Honors, or AP classes. The best part about this school, that appeals to most students, is the fact that each student gets their own laptop to keep for FREE for the duration of the school year. Very awesome school! Should get more recognition and acknowledgment.
