Independence Unified School District Reviews

3 reviews
In the time as a student at Independence SR High School I did very little. Teachers expected next to nothing. In one of my science classes we did a word search each week. Three weeks went by we did a open book quiz. I compare the rigor to fourth grade, but we did less coloring win fourth grade. The elementary schools are fully staffed with caring hardworking educators.

It's a great environment but the adminastarion does not care about you. The kids are very nice there but some of the staff are very rude and do not care about your education. Mr Sherell the principal is not even at school half of the time and the counselers and registrars are useless they have no clue what they are doing and things do not run smoothly. The best part of our school are the athletics. We excel in every sport.
I have attended this school district since I was in the first grade. It has left me with a decent education, however, that has been on the part of myself rather than the school.
