West Irondequoit Central School District Reviews

23 reviews

For those who want to learn, West Irondequoit is a great district to do so. I had amazing teachers who taught me the information important to learning their specific subject, as well as invaluable life lessons about finances, college, careers, and more. I had access to great art, music, business, and technology classes, helping me explore all the different paths I could take in my future.
While most of the teachers pushed their students to work hard, the administration was obsessed with graduating every student. Students who did not meet requirements often still graduated, as the administration forced teachers to inflate grades so that the students would pass. This effectively discouraged hardworking students and made the Irondequoit diploma feel like much less of an accomplishment. For the most part, West Irondequoit has a great staff and opportunities for students, but it needs to change its priorities to producing college or career ready graduates, not just high graduation rates.

Irondequoit High School is filled with teachers who consistently do their best to educate students and look out for their future livelihood. As a senior, teachers from my freshman year greet me in the hallway with a smile. The teachers are willing to write you recommendation letters at your request, read over your college essays, and play a pivotal part in your post-secondary education.

IHS is a diverse place. However, there are defined cliques, and there are fights on a regular basis. Students are permitted to wander the hallways and trash and vape in the bathrooms without restrictions.

IHS is known for its stellar football team and lacrosse teams. While games for these sports are always spirited, other sports are disenfranchised. The track team can't afford jerseys while the Girls' LAX team gets to play explicit music over the loudspeakers during their practices. The fact that football and LAX are glorified increases segregation of those who are popular from everyone else.
Although I didn't receive all the opportunities that I attempted to take part in, it taught me that small failures can motivate me to keep persisting with my goals. The teachers always care about the mental health and the knowledge retained in students. One thing I would change is rank and BOE meetings. I believe keeping rank encourages students to try harder in their studies, and one day they may see their name at the top. Also, the school should encourage students to attend the BOE meetings. This would make students more involved in the community and allow them to represent the insights of the youth.
