Illini Bluffs High School Reviews

I am going in to my senior year at Illini Bluffs High School, and there are many reasons why IB is a great school. Overall, our teachers are great people, and they care about your well being. We have two counselors, one for college readiness, and one for mental health. There isn’t really much opportunity at Illini Bluffs for AP and IB classes, in fact we only have one AP class, and no IB classes. There are enriched classes for English, but that’s all. The building itself is kind of old and decrepit, but the janitors keep it clean, and the school is working towards making it more functional. Each student is granted a laptop, because almost 90% of the schoolwork is online. Overall, Illini Bluffs is a close-knit, rural farm school, with great teachers and community.

Because the school is so small a lot of the teachers can be like a second parent to some of the students or just be a close friend. However, also because it is such a small school everybody knows everybody and bullying is a huge issue. Drug use is a huge problem. The school has no drug testing but really should. There is also a problem with students cheating on tests, exams, quizzes and homework. There are group chats where they all send each other answers and I have caught many of them cheating on tests and quizzes. I say nothing to the teachers because I had a friend who once reported people cheating and started receiving death threats from the students he had reported. But I do realize that if it wasn't for all the cheating that students like me who actually do their own work based off of their own knowledge would be in the top 10 and have much better chances for scholarships.
One thing I loved about my high school was that everybody knew everybody. Rather than passing by a new face every hour, I was familiar with both everyone around me and their families. Such a friendly high school allowed for the students to become more of a family than just classmates.
