This school was very unprepared. The teachers were nice, but more like friends than teachers. And there was rarely any actual work being done. My daughter likened it to playing and having fun all day, with the bonus of being able to get online to chat and surf!!!
I give Indy Met a five star salute!! My family has been part of the Indy Met since the doors opened some six years ago. I am a very proud parent of a daughter that graduated in the first class. This May, I will witness my twin daughters graduating from this same school. And in the following year, my son will graduate, prayfully with a basketball scholoarship. All my daughters are in college or are on their way... so I am, again, proud to have four children to graduate from this school. Indy Met has become part of my family. The advisors are and have always been one on one with my children. I recommend it to anyone!
i am a parent of a student that attends this school.i dont not think they teach basic courses.
Indy Met is the best kept secret in education in Indianapolis. The services provided to students are unmatched anywhere in the city. Students are given the opportunity to explore their communities and learn more about their selves. Students are taught at their own pace and staff, students, and families have meaningful relationships. Contrary to some reviews, students are not taught every subject by the same teacher, but by highly qualified content area teachers. This is not like a traditional high school, for good reason.
I am a parent of a student that attended the school last year. The school does not teach the students, the students are expected to teach themselves. I am not sure how one teacher is supposed to teach all high school subjects. As a result, I believe my child was not given an appropriate high school education. My child also stated that many of the seniors had to come back after they graduated to complete requirements. Correct me if I am wrong, but how can a school enforce completion of coursework when the student already graduated? The Department of Education should ask some serious questions regarding this school and their practices. My child will never return to this school.
I'm a parent of a student in Mrs. Leondra's class. She is amazing. I've never seen anyone, teacher or otherwise, go the distants she has with her students. When my chid comes home from school all she talkes about is her teacher. She also has this relationship with her other students. I'm so impressed with how far she's gone to be a part of my daughter's whole life, not just academically. I've seen her ralley parents and community members together to meet the needs of studnets and their families. I can't say enough good things about her. I thank God everyday for her being a part of my daughter's life because she was behind in reading when she came to the Met and today she was accepted to her 1st choice in college. This school has opened her eyes to so many possibilities.
I am a parent of a student that attends this school. I believe most of the educators and staff actually care about the students. However, there are so many students with social and discipline problems, it seems to overshadow everything else. We are only going to finish out the year there, never to return.
I have a step-son that attends this school. I just don't agree with the way things are taught here. When I was in school, we were taught Math, English, Science, etc. I don't understand what hapened to the basics of education.
