I absolutely loved it. I made my own schedule, open campus basically the best teachers. Wish i could go back!
Our daughter had an exceptional experience at IRCHS. This is a performing arts school and for students who work hard will be rewarded with lots of opportunities to excel. Administrators and faculty are hands on and dedicated to the success of the students. Charter students are required to be responsible as it is an open campus. A great school environment with no drugs, fights, bullying. School drug tests and has zero tolerance. Fantastic opportunity for any student with a focus in the Arts.
This school is amazing. I love coming here everyday. I come early and leave late. I love it.
My daughter attends this school and it has changed her life. She has become a stronger student, a better communicator and an inquisitive learner. The performing arts program (VAPA) is amazing. If you don't go to the school, you should go and see one of their performances
As my child prepares to graduate from the Charter High School I feel that people need to know what an amazing school this is. Everyone that works at the school is there to benefit the students, and it doesn't matter if they are a teacher, counselor or even the security guard. They all look out for, listen too, and care for each other. The charter high school students have many different personality types, and yet every one gets along. It is truly a place for teenagers to grow and become more independent. The teachers really focus on your child, and their future. Great things are to come from students graduating from the Indian River Charter High School
My student was falsely accused of academic honesty at this school. When it became clear she was not cheating, no one offered an apology. If you attend this school, be certain to copy and save all homework assignments and doctor's notes to support absences because the teachers and administrators lose these items constantly.
Charter is an amazing school. In my opinion, the best in the county. It is the only school that, to my knowledge, offers dance, art, piano, jazz, orchestra, chorus, golf, and other art classes. Additionally, it is on the same campus as Indian River State College. Duel Enrollment is extremely common. IRCHS provides every duel enrolled student with free books for all their colleges classes (as well as high school classes) that would otherwise could hace cost hundreds each. Students DO get demerits if they have an unexcused absense to class. If students want a more challenging curriculum, I suggesst that they enroll in duel enrollment, AP, or Honors courses instead of complaining that the classes aren't difficult enough. The teachers are friendly, smart, and caring. The students are very talented and their is no shortage of personality. IRCHS is by far the best in the county.
Fantastic atmosphere for learning with the opportunity to walk to the State College for dual enrollment.
I graduated from IRCHS in 2009 and the teachers are awesome. The teachers were very caring and helped students achieve thier very best. IRCHS offered a great learning environment and while there I was also able to do dual enrollment classes which is making college much easier since I completed all my general education classes! Great school!!!
The teachers know us all by name not just an ID number. The staff really does care about the well-being of all the students and together we all help create a safer, friendlier environment for everyone.
child to teacher ratio - outstanding. teachers really care for the kids
I feel the school really cares about the students and their learning. It allows them to think for themselves and be responsible for their actions.
My son has been attending this school for the 1st time this year...He has just flourished with the treachers and staff, that just CARE for their students!!!!
Indian River Charter High School has a great many opportunities for a student. Being a junior at IRCHS, i have learned a lot from my teacher's excellent, hands-on labs and curriculum. Since Indian River Charter High School is a short distance away from Indian River State College, this provides an opportunity for students at IRCHS to earn a degree before graduating from our school. We may have a small amount of 600-700 students, but the learning opportunities are great.
Indian River Charter High School has excellent education standards, great campus, and the teachers create suburb, hands-on curriculum. The Science classes have many labs; for instance, we are mummifying fish in my Marine Science class for the Egypt Hands-on Museum coming up on soon in November. The Commercial Art/Web Design classes are creating their own topics off of the current time period that the entire school is following this year. This year, at IRCHS, we are doing from the beginning of time to 800 A.D. Many Projects in all of the classes are based around this era of time.
Incredible teachers + Rich diversity + Caring administrator + Helpful staff + Superb facilities = IRCHS !!
Our School is a place that offers variety of courses for students, an outstanding arts department, and excellent academic and physical ed courses. There is a big sunny campus with options for everyone to get to know one another,during classes and also during the many activities outside of curriculum schedules. The faculty & administration have been supportive and friendly, so it's a pleasure to be here.
As a parent, I feel like my child is at a caring school, not 'lost in the system' of a larger school. Teachers are personal and know their students, and that makes a world of difference during the transformative teenage years!
