Idalou high school was a great school! What I like about the school was that everyone was very supportive in what you do and the teachers would help you get to where you want to be. The teachers weren't just teachers they felt like family. The coaches were outstanding about your goals and achievements as well. If there was one thing I would change about idalou high school, it would have to be the books and calculators that we needed and weren't given. The history books needed to be updated as well as the calculators they provided us with.

Idalou High School is overall a great school. Some of the administrators are obviously partial towards certain students and other administrators. While other administrators are absolutely amazing, unfortunately they are slowly being pushed out by the partial administrators. A majority of the teachers however their feeling towards students are still great teachers and will work with the students if the student is willing to put in the work and time.
Idalou is a place built on hard work that is continually driven by a tradition of success. Each member of the Wildcat Team from the students to the principal are unwavering in their dedication to the furthering of the community, and of themselves. Although not ornamented with the nicest football stadium or updated facilities, Idalou adorns itself with trophies won from competitions of academics and athletics; continually proving its essence of excellence. As you can see, I have come to bleed green and gold because Idalou has taught me more than my ABCs. Idalou has showed me that an outstanding work ethic will always render outstanding results. Idalou is a very special place surrounded by the support of a very special community, and I wouldn't change my time there for the world.
