The curriculum is based on workbooks instead of semesters. We moved out of the area and had to transfer our daughter back to a regular high school. She was an all A student! The faculty refused to giver her any credits for the time period attended and course work completed. This has completely crippled her GPA and high school credits. I'm not sure how they get away with not giving credits to students that have to transfer or move out of state. I should have argued this and fought harder to get my daughter at least a portion of the credits. Katy ISD said they would have fought against this poor and unethical decision made by ischool as well. Maybe I still should since my daughter is now having to graduate through a minimum graduate program. This is the one HUGE reason i would not recommend this school.
First of all, bullying is very RARE at our school. And if anything comes up the staff and teachers get involved to resolve the issue quickly. At iSchool, we are a family, therefore it is unlikely to see harsh attitudes toward each other.
The environment of our school is so different, and we are college students and high school students at the same time. For this reason, we are treated as young adults. Because our staff and teachers respect us, we in turn respect them so much.
I can still remember not liking the idea of this school as an 8th grader, but my mom said, "Just give it a chance." The main reason I did not want to go here was because I wanted to play basketball. Let me tell you, within a week of attending this school not only did I fall in love with iSchool High but I met some of my best friends. At iSchool, we are a family. It is hard to explain the environment of iSchool High unless you attend! It's so different then what you might expect. We take college classes for free. One of my friends is even graduating with her associate's degree! At iSchool, our education is put first in everything we do, but we do have lots of fun while furthering our education. Student lead all the clubs and events, which makes it so much fun. I could probably go on for days, but I'll end with this. I am now a Senior at iSchool High. I have had the absolute best high school experience ever. I look back on the three years I've spent here, and can honestly say iSchool High not only prepared me for college, but for every aspect of my life. Thanks mom for making me "give it a chance."
My daughter started here this school year, and she hasn't regretted it. She is so excited to go to school now because the experience is amazing! She gets to attend high school and college at the same time. She now has the chance of getting her associates degree for free. I would refer absolutely refer anyone to this school. This is an amazing opportunity for anyone. You need to apply your child today!
The school has offered my child amazing opportunities! My daughter, Alexis, is excelling in this program. The school offers amazing college classes, and teaches her how to be responsible in the real world. The teachers are phenomenal. Because of how small the classes are, the teaches have a personal relationship with each of the students. They seek to help the students succeed in every way possible. This environment has helped my daughter grow into a mature, young woman. Apply today! You won't regret it!
This school has had my son grow in more ways than just his education. He has matured now more than ever with his responsibilities. With him in control of his education, he has almost completed his sophomore year in just one semester. He has wonderful relationships with each of his teachers, and most importantly he feels safe. I greatly recommend that your child come to this school if they are self motivated. Apply today!
