ICHS enrolls international students from South Korea, Japan, VietNam, China, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Thailand, India, Pakistan, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Nigeria, Liberia, Argentina, Brazil, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic. International students recognize the bridge that ICHS offers to a higher education and the secure foundation that Biblical truths offer for any career path.

The worst school I have ever known. The school just wants the money. If you want your child to have a high school diploma then go to this school, but if you want your child to have knowledge then this school is not for your child.

ICHS has been the best school I ve attended thus far. The devotion, integrity, and Christian leadership exhibited by the faculty is undeniable. I ve attended ICHS for 3 years packed with quality education and spiritual growth. I ve developed a close relationship with most of my teachers. I can honestly say that the faculty have students on their first priority. They re selfless and dedicated. They give us all of the tools needed to move on with college and, more importantly, life. It will definitely be a bittersweet moment at graduation. Class of 13.

i feel that ichs teachers take the time to interact with the students on a base level. they try to help whenever they can. the sports are competative, the drama club is great, and the new volleyball is fantastic. i have seen a very big improvement in the lunch program.

If you a looking for a small school that will provide your child the individual attention he or she needs then ICHS is the school for you. Each teacher personally knows their student and can give parents detailed, descriptive reports on each student. The staff is very helpful and professional. They truly display Christian discipleship. If I had to decide all over again where my son would go, I would choose ICHS again. I believe my son has a bright future ahead of him and I have ICHS to thank for that.

Two of my children have graduated from ICHS (went on to college); two are currently in ICHS (10th and 12th grades); last two children (currently in 4th and 8th grades) will be attending ICHS. Dedicated and caring faculty and staff; solid curriculum that challenges students to excel. As with anything in life, "You get out of it, what you put into it". I would recommend ICHS to anyone.

This school was the right size for my children - small, caring and quality. It had enough activities to keep the kids busy an d enable them to participate.Something they probably would not have be able to do in a large school.We particularly appreciated the christian values taught at the school. We have recommended the school to many of our friends.

this school is very poor in supplying proper education to its students. Teachers and faculty members single out students causing them to feel uncomfortable and sometimes scared. The lunch is unaduequate and the health department needs to check this place out

This school has what it needs to be a school. It may not have alot of options to choose from but they have most of the necesities to get your kids through college. People shouldn't always blame bad things on the school because its not always the school but the students themselves.

I think the administration in this school is excellent. For the things that they put up with and go through to keep this school going, i think that they do a great job.

I am very pleased with this school. My daugther has received personal attention that I don't believe she would have in a larger school.The teachers have always made themself available to address her needs. I feel the students and teachers show a great deal of respect for one another. I would highly recommend this school.

ICHS has made a lasting impact on me. The teachers have taken the time to not only teach thier subjects, but to get to know me personally. A few different times as I have neede help they sat down and prayed me through some things that were going on at home. They have been a school that brought me through some rough times. I am set to graduate in 09 and I am going to Eastern.

This school is utterly ridiculous! I feel as though my parents wasted there money sending me to I.C.H.S.! My parents never saw any of there money prosper here! Although the atmosphere is not quite as bad the public schools! It still doesn't have an up to date curriculum being taught! I was quite disappointed once I realized that the library had books in there that was almost a century old and was no use to me in any of my research projects due to the fact they were out of date! I can also say that the schools teachers are not all qualified to teach many subjects that they are currently teaching! I honestly don't feel as though any parent should have to waste there money for a whole year once realizing that the disciplinary, biblical, and educational values that their children are being taught aren't up to par!

I graduated in '04 and I had an ok experience, but I wish I wouldn't have settled. Their disciplinary actions are poor however and the rest of the kids who want to learn suffer. The students have control of the classroom, the teachers don't. The teachers also practice lots of favoritism, and they also don't like involvement with the parents. They don't have many extra curriculars, and forget about college prep. They don't even have a yearbook! In my opinion, put out the extra money and send them to calvary. I'd rather put my child in public school rather then pay for them to go to ichs.

My son attended INCH during his freshman and sophomore year. The worst part about this school was the lack of involvement with parents regarding children who need remedial instruction. Parents are placated, yet there is no remedy. Safety was a concern because of the interaction with other schools. This school does not have the leadership or teaching staff to offer children optimum success.

This school is not what its name would have you believe. Do not let 'Christian' fool you. My advice is, spend time sitting in the school lobby. In a matter of minutes you will find all you need to know about how the school operates. Do not send your child to this school. If your child is having trouble with math, this is not the place for them. The programmed instruction booklets are the sole remediation.

Although there are a few good teachers in this school; as a whole has proved to be quite a dissapointment. I am currently having difficulties with my child's transcript. The administratioh is ignoring my request to meet in order to resolve this matter. Math instruction seems to be a non entity.

My child is going into her 12th grade year and this school hasn't begun any college preparation for them. I had to do it myself. I believe this school can do so much better. On the SAT test my child felt that she wasn't prepared for the math portion of the test. I am praying for the administration to get it together.

I graduated in 06. I was there for my last two years of high school and I have to say that they were 2 of my greatest years. Its great because its a Christian school, but religion doesn't get shoved down your throat like in other schools. I learned to prove to people what I believe in and why. Although there aren't a lot of extracurricular activities, they do great mission trips. Its really an experience that shouldn't be missed. I'd recommend this school to anyone.

This is an excellent school. It is afordable, and the classes are small which makes a better learning environment for the student. They have various sports and activities, and ample oppurtunity for the students to get inlvolved with community service and other organizations. Parent involvement is very high.
