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

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.
Independence is a wonderful district that provides wonderful opportunities, academic and otherwise. All the staff and students are kind and helpful. Everyone is given ample opportunity to improve their learning and life experiences. The school is amazing in their academic advancement (as much as a public school can be). Going here is expensive, however.
