I love the technology and engineering departments at the middle schools and at Ithaca Senior high school! I’ve had a lot of fun with the robotics team in the last 2 years (Code Red Robotics FRC team 639). I have had iffy experiences in the English department at the high school but I love the math and science courses that are offered. I had an amazing and very enthusiastic chemistry teacher this year which was fantastic!

Ithaca City School District has been my school district for my whole educational time in school. It has been an amazing experience and the teachers are amazing people who really do want to see you succeed. I have learned so much and have benefited from everything my teachers have taught me whether it be how to solve for a variable to learning strategies to be nice and kind to others, I have definitely become a better person throughout education at ICSD. As a middle school student I am not sure how the high school runs, but from what I see I know that they offer an amazing course that will prepare anyone for college and I feel already being prepared. ICSD has also done a great job in the diversity of the schools and has minimized bullying to keep the schools safe. In conclusion, ICSD in my opinion is one of the best school districts in the area that is doing a great job educating kids like myself.
IHS has an amazing technology department! With Cornell University less than a mile away the standards at Ithaca High School are high. The faculty provided an education that is able to meet those high standards.
