Good things are happening at Ionia Public schools. Administration, teachers and parents are working together to make the best possible learning environment for school students. An increase in opportunities through the joint venture with the ISD and Heartlands Institute of technology and added Advanced Placement classes has helped grab the attention of students looking to go forward into trades or college.

Ionia Public Schools has been working towards positive and orderly conduct the past few years under new principal leadership. Recent grants have also allowed this. Overall, I enjoy my time at the school but there is a lot of things that could be improved.
The school keeps cutting classes for the students that want to do well and continue challenging themselves academically. The school centers itself around athletics instead of academics. Academics should come first in schools, not athletics. Athletes are constantly being let by because they are what is important to the school. It has started to improve with new administration, but there are still many kids that cannot be controlled. The incoming classes keep coming in more disrespectful than the last. This could be because of a lack of enforced rules in lower schools or just a lack of proper parenting. The school need to take control of the kids who need it, but without punishing the kids that are doing their best.
