Ironton City School District Reviews
I went to Ironton high school when I was a junior. It was an amazing year. I felt like I could finally be myself there. They had amazing sports and such a great support system. They teachers helped with whatever was going on. You could count on them for anything. In the middle of junior year my dad passed away. I didn’t go to school for a few days and as soon as I came back the staff welcomed me with hugs and kind words. They checked on me from day 1 all the way until now. They have a great college career class. It was my favorite class. They taught us about growing up, applying for colleges and jobs, gave us mock interviews and taught us many things we will need when we are on our own. My experience at Ironton was something I will always cherish.
I would like to see more college prep take place. We don't have much help with applying to different colleges or prepping for the ACT. Our ACT prep is conducted my students and we really need tutors available to help us raise our scores. Also, publicity for student athletes to different schools is almost non-existent.
Ironton City School District is a National Blue Ribbon School. Our academics are top notch. My one area where improvement is much needed would be our athletics programs. Our programs have fallen over the past few years because our school board will not look outside the box when hiring coaches and staff. There for positions come open only to be filled by someones relation. They don't play athletes by their ability. They play by name only. The wins stop coming so most athletes that don't have the big name don't even bother going out for a team. There's been a lot of big athletes slip through the cracks because of this. It's a real pity because there could be so many athletic scholarships earned. I just know what the reputation of being an Ironton Fighting Tiger used to mean as far as being legendary and it's a shame that there are people in there now that couldn't care any less about our school's history.
