This school is NOT what i expected! The school does not have a principal, there are no lockers therefore the children have to carry their notebooks to and from school (the children are given a set of text books to keep at home bc they obviously cant carry them every day and work from text books left in school), no extra activities activities (no gym, art, music etc), no cafeteria. All the kids really get is a ton of homework! My poor kid falls asleep doing all of the work bc its so much. There's no stability. By that i mean, there was a spanish teacher at the beginning of the year, she left and then a chinese teacher came to teach mandarin and she left and now theres a new spanish teacher that cant teach because a good amount of non spanish speaking kids all received grades in the 60's. the school is beyond small. Before deciding to send my child to this school, we were told the school would be in a new building in sept 2014 and guess what? The school was no where near built. The school overall is a big disappointment and i truly pray that my kid gets accepted to a more equipped high school.
(4/4) There are metal detectors, but not the ones you think. It's the ones where the person waves a wand all around your body to check for metals. The good thing is that they haven't patted anyone down so far, for as long as I know. That's all I will write for today. I recommend you don't bring your child to this abomination of a charter school, since he/she will suffer immense pain with the staff and teachers. I am a straight A student but am trying to transfer next year. Best of wishes.
ILCHS is one of the best high school in NYC. Press Release 9/ 9/ 2014 This year, Newsweek sought to recognize schools that beat the odds and who performed better than statistically expected for the students level of poverty.

These honors are in addition to our school being ranked #6 of all NYC Public High Schools. This national recognition in Newsweek America s Top High Schools 2014,
THIS IS THE WORST SCHOOL YOU COULD EVER GO TO . you can't bring lotion, juice, snacks, etc. the school claims to be a college-prep high school YET we don't even take geometry which is a major part in the SAT and in college. Also students are restricted from expressing themselves.
This school does not allow my child to take regent exam until 12th grade. This is ridiculous! The school does not have good curriculum, they don't have earth science, gym, music, geometry, and all AP courses. When i come to school to pick up my child in the middle of the day because of doctor's appointment, they don't allow me to pick my child.
I m a Parent: My daughter has been part of ILCS for three years. Now, she is a Senior Student. I m so proud that she is going to graduates from this school. It s a great school and the teachers work hard. They are in continuing development. My daughter feels the school likes her second home, like a real family. I love it
Do not send your child here....it classes are very dull to the point were there is no motivation to come to school .....this school is a get rich quickie.......just like all charter school.....nearly if not all student want this school shut down ......but we are doomed here...i feel not ready for college whatsoever ..this being college prep...and the student body will agreee...when vistiors come....they threaten us to be good...and get a good review...they went so low to even give the 11th grade a day off ..so when the vistors come...there is no negative comments ..i wouldnt recomend this school to my enemy...so please ...dont come here
This school has great potential and in great for our own community but is being run by people that has their own agendas for their best interests not the students nor their parents, explain how I have been asking for my daughters GPA average before this years spring break and always they give me an excuse that they are unable to give it to me no stars for me on this school.
