I hated my experience at this school and the way the IB program was carried out here. I liked my freshman and sophomore year, but after I started the full IB program my mental health deteriorated. I couldn't approach any teachers about my circumstances because of the tight-knit academic atmosphere. Generally, I didn't find most of my teachers genuinely interested in my health but only in my classroom participation (This is solely based on the teachers I had, and I certainly had few teachers who cared about me). My counselor has been nice to me but the tense atmosphere in this school has negatively changed my personality. I got depression in junior year and I have even though of suicide before. This is such a closed topic because most IB diploma students here have all encountered this so it is just considered a part of the IB program's stress. I feel like if I went to a different school I could have at least not lost my self-esteem and performed better emotionally and academically. My biggest regret yet is going to this school because I have lost myself, my confidence, my bright personality, and my future opportunities. *This is my own experience and does not generalize all IB students and teachers here.*

2/10. No way this school makes your kid ready for college. They hand out IB diplomas like nothing and they don’t care about character. Only what’s on paper so that the incompetent leaders look good.

They never answer the phone or call you back if you leave a message!

Our child is graduating from the GHSP (gifted high school program) housed at Interlake and it has been phenomenal. The teachers are engaging, challenging, thoughtful, and do an amazing job at preparing these kids for college. Our kiddo has enjoyed (almost!) all of his teachers and we could not be more pleased with the education received .

The school runs a gifted program with worst teachers. Pre Cal is taught my a very moody and disoriented teacher. Very few teachers are willing to consider child health accommodations and in fact mentions that they will not accommodate. The school needs to review its teachers and provide a means to feedback on their approach to students.
