Great facilities and sports teams! Love the teachers and the atmosphere at school. However, there is very little diversity.

Independence Local Schools definitely helped me personally excel and challenge myself through academics and activities. However, I didn't find many opportunities for going to school here. Though, I'm glad I went to a school that gave me the education I need. Independence has helped me find my career path and supported all of my decisions for the future.
I attend Independence Highschool. We are a smaller sized school with a close-knit community. I think that being apart of this community has advantages as well as disadvantages. I have been able to make very strong connections that will support me in the future. However, I would have liked to go to a bigger school with more people.
