Incarnate Word Academy is a great school, the teachers truly care to teach their students what is needed not only to pass the class or the upcoming test but also to prepare you for college. One thing that I loved from this school was the fact that the teachers teach you to analyze and think for yourself, ...  Read more

It's my first year here, and I love it. It's small, and that makes it easy to know everyone in your class by name. The teachers are awesome, although some of them could work on their teaching method. It's not that they're bad; just a little dry. Honors courses are challenging, but not overly challenging. ...  Read more

IWA is a great school with absolutely great teachers. My daughter is in her 2nd year there and absolutely loves the school, teachers and classmates.

Good teachers who are willing to help, not a lot of homework, some what challenging. Great location! Not a lot of school sprit or school pride. Underrated and somewhat of a bad rep just because we have more minorities than the other schools.

IWA is a wonderful school with great traditions, academic excellence, a principal with good leadership, and excellent teachers. The sports programs are successful as well.

The school has all the makings of a great school, but is in a transition period right now with weak leadership. Things should change when the helm is passed in June. Teachers are unsupported and discipline is very inconsistent. Counseling has improved with new counselor, but is late for those graduating ...  Read more
