Inglemoor has a rigorous academic program and diverse opportunities for involvement. On the positive side the level of acheivement required in IB classes prepares students exceptionally well for college and beyond. On the down side the stress and exhaustion are something parents need to be willing to support their child through. The school is very interested in keeping IB enrollment high but unaware perhaps of the exceedingly stressful situation created by demanding programs and certainly the school is not prepared to offer tutoring or supportive resources. That is on the parents dime, (a math teachers website recommendation " you form a study group or get a tutor" if struggling supports this statement. He does not offer personel assistance or suggest that their is an on sight math help center) My hard working honor student will make it but we have all worked together and spent a lot of money making this happen. It certainly raises for me classism and access issues.
The ELL teacher was terrible, careless, helpless, rude. How can she be qualified as a teacher?
Inglemoor high school is only a good school if you are excelling in the IB program. Inglemoor treats every other student as if they are nobody's. Some staff members are great, but a majority of them are unreasonable and fail to do their jobs correctly. Inglemoor's biggest flaw is that they don't know justice. The staff are very cruel, and use their power to treat "bad kids" like they're not people. This school district over punishes, and this school doesn't care about the success or education of those who don't excel.
Inglemoor's IB program definitely prepared me for college. For the most part, college was actually easier than IB, likely because IB teaches the skills (especially writing skills) needed to succeed in college. My teachers were passionate and made the material accessible as well as challenging. I'm giving this school a 4/5 more because I was only in IB classes, so it's hard for me to judge how regular classes are.
Close to impossible for any child to NOT excel at Inglemoor. Truly something to ignite a passionate interest in every child. Clubs, sports, TOP rated academics. Nationally ranked Blue Ribbon school. Over one third of 2010 grads are attending the UW this fall and many more are at top US and International Schools worldwide. You would be incredibly hard put to find a better educated and committed staff in a private school environment.
This school provides so many opportunities and programs, it has a full IB program, DECA and even has a full dark room and developing room for film photography. IHS has great classes for artists, journalists, and musicians--also has a decorated band that is the best in the region (at least.) Inglemoor has a great environment.
The teachers, for the most part, are not only excellent teachers but also loving people. The Inglemoor community is great. This school has some kind of activity that will cater to your interests, no matter how obscure. Opportunities to get involved abound. The administrative staff is knowledgeable, but helpfulness is variable. Most students are bright and have found their passions.
I am shocked that this school has a current 10 on the rating scale. Three out of 4 of my children have attended this school and have found it to be substandard. Additionally, I have talked to multiple parents that have had a similar experience.
Inglemoor offers a great public school education. It is a well rounded school with a strong sense of community, athletics, as well as academics. The IB program raises the bar of academics to that of any private school, or other public school.
I am genuinely greatful that I attended this school. What a blessing it was! I didn't even realize what unique opportunities it provided until I compared my high school experience with those from other schools. Class of 2009!
Not a good school choice. My son attended and received no help from staff when needed. Support is inadequate! Too many students and if you are not stellar you are a noboady.
Filled with teachers who care, Inglemoor is a school with with high standards for its students, with much to do outside of the classroom. Outstanding institution.
Inglemoor is a great place to work and I believe a great place to learn. The administration is very supportive of staff and students alike! Every effort is made to assure that each student gets the support that he.she needs to be successful. I have worked in a variety of schools over my career and I give this school five stars!
My son spent his 10th grade year at Inglemoor, our experience was... I'd say close to nightmare. Too stressful to give any details about experiences, I'm just putting my marks at 2 stars and leaving it at that.
i currently go to inglemoor. this is my 5th highschool & i have to say that i have been most successful at ihs. i'm on the gymnastics team & involved in choir. the music program is great as well as the academics. it is a lot more strict than the other schools i have attended, but in many ways that is a good thing because the teachers & security at inglemoor make sure everyone's in class & the teachers make sure that you get done with what you need to. i really like the support i've gotten at inglemoor & i think it's a good school to look into.
Inglemoor is pretty great, we've got all the smart kids and there are some cool teachers as well. Class of 2010 baby! =]
I currently attend Inglemoor (class of 2009), and I am very happy that I attend this school. I should have attended another school, but I waivered away to attend Inglemoor. I waivered because of the academic emphasis, the order and pride that students have in the school, and specifically, te IB program. I've very glad that I attend Inglemoor. I could not have asked fro anything more.
I attended IHS from 2002-2004 and had the most fabulous high school experience. From sports, ASB, and school spirit- IHS has it all. The leadership, top down, is A-Grade. I could not have asked for better mentorship and college prep.
I am currently attending IHS and must say its one of the best schools around. It is the only school in the NSSD to house the IB program (an AP program that provides college level curriculum) The only down side is that IHS is designed for about 1500 students, though it has almost 2000. There is a very strong music program (by far one of the best public school music programs in the US) though academics is the vocal point, as it should be. If you desire a high school that has you teens future in mind, Inglemoor High School is the place where child will get the educational experience he/she deserves.
Principal, teachers, counselors and in the case of one of my children, coaches all stepped up and helped my three children to become great students and fine people. We owe Inglemoor.
