Independence Community School District Reviews
The Independence Community School District has a wonderful facility and many excellent programs such as band and wrestling. However, academic success and the well being of all students is something all the staff members at this school district needs to work on. I would suggest staff members actively engage with students in their work and make an effort to connect with all students, not just select students. With all this being said, I have been able to stretch my musical abilities farther than I could have ever imagined.
I am currently a senior at Independence Community High School and feel fortunate to have spent my high school career there. I have had the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities/sports/clubs and organizations and have always been surrounded by positive teachers and staff. The administration makes all students and their education their first priority, and I have always felt safe at school.
I liked how Independence was a small, tight-knit community and I grew up knowing most everyone in the district. A major downside of Independence was the academic curriculum. Once in high school, I, along with my peers, noted a significant downfall to the science department. Now in college and looking back on my preparatory education, I am strongly dissatisfied with my high school coursework.
