As a former student of IA for the full 12 years, I have full rights to tell the truth about it. First of all, you must have the right last name to get anywhere there. Grades are handed out according to your parents social status, as well as sports inclusion regardless of how good you are in whatever the sport. I feel that many would-be sports legends were eliminated at IA simply because of the last name issue. Secondly, the teachers will bully students as much as the other students will. I had a teacher who, for whatever reason, didn't like my parents and she purposely tried to prevent me from graduating by failing me on purpose. So-called school administration was absolutely useless and worthless in getting this remedied. Thirdly, it is and has been a tremendous expense to avoid going to public schools. In the MS Delta area, there are no other choices, other than home schooling. Public schools are nothing but a zoo and private schools are a joke and a waste of money, at best. To sum it all up, avoid IA at all costs and home school if you can. The full twelve years I was incarcerated there, I had only three teachers that were of any quality. The rest were absolutely useless.

My children go to this school. It has a good athletic program and the academic curriculum is well rounded.

IA is excellent for sports (very competitive) and also offers an excellent education if you're up for the challenge. It takes work.

If you want 'top notch' schools, move to the Florida panhandle. We strive for the Best and nothing less. All public schools (with only a handful of Academy's in the area) here are excellent in my county. The teachers actually care about the children, schedule parent meetings, and email you if there is a problem. I would not live anywhere else but Florida, and I know my children are getting a great education.
