Homebase is the heart and soul of Indian River Charter High School. It is the one class that can not be found at any other school. It takes a teacher and a group of students and creates a family that will stay together for the entire four years of high school. The focus on relationships between teacher and student provides a support system that encourages students to reach their fullest potential. Our school makes kids brighter, our homebase make them better.
When it comes to academic performance, the numbers speak for themselves. Indian River Charter High School has consistently outperformed the District and State averages on every State standardized test over the past four years by a wide margin. IRCHS is the only “A” rated high school in Indian River County and has earned an “A” rating in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. The school ranks eleventh out of four hundred sixty charter schools in the state for students’ performance on the State standardized Science test. IRCHS is in the top ninety-four percent of all high schools in the state for its four year graduation rate.
Indian River Charter High School strives to create students who are active in shaping their community through volunteering and citizenship. They are required to earn ten volunteer hours, attend one local government meeting, and attend one cultural event per semester. Students engage with a myriad of local foundations, societies, missions, and non-profits.
Students in the Visual and Performing Arts program have access to all kinds of amazing opportunities to shine. Our students participate in competitions at the local, regional, state, and national level, receiving significant recognition at all levels. Students participate in local volunteer opportunities related to the arts and gain valuable experience in these fields.
Each semester the entire school community produces a curriculum-based VAPA showcase incorporating theater, orchestra, musical theater, dance, and the visual arts.
