Ithaca City School District Reviews
Ithaca City School District offers excellent education for everyone that attends. Where I met some of the best friends I've had to this day. Throughout each grade level, from elementary to high school, teachers have always provided a hands-on approach to ensuring each student is successful in their academic endeavors. Although the on site involvement of teachers and administration is above average, there are some issues with the inner workings of the school district. The most prominent issue is the lack of recycling within the district. Though we do have separate binds for recycling and trash, at the end of the day it is all combined into one. As of now the Green Team club at the high school is working to decrease the impact of this issue. In the future, I hope the extreme importance of recycling is recognized and action is taken to save our environment, in changing our recycling policies.
Okay, so, ICSD has been my home for all thirteen years of my life. The high school is actually my favorite out of all, for me and my friends, its a second home. The community of Ithaca and all of the people in it generate such a diverse and amazing place to grow up. Everyone here is very accepting and supportive, it is very easy for students to thrive here. Because the high school is seated below the hill of Cornell we have a very academically rigorous curriculum. Students support each other here to do their very best in school, and some of the teachers are the best in their fields. Just this year my Psychology teacher left or his sabbatical to study for the Fullbright scholarship. All students succeed amazingly and go almost directly into college life feeling prepared and ahead of many other students in their field.
I've been at Ithaca my whole life. Its been overall a really hard district to get through. For many years me and my mom had to fight to get my permanent disability to be acknowledged and for me to get the right help. After years of lawyers and fights, I got supports I needed. Overall, after our fight, it was a great place to go to school in. I would like to see more educators of color, as of right now we only have 2 for a school of 1500 kids ( Ithaca High School )
