Illini Bluffs High School Reviews
Illini Bluffs is a small school with low diversity with students and teachers. That becomes an issue because racism is prevalent in our school and it needs to be surveyed more closely. Illini Bluffs is very strong in sports/activities. It is highly encouraged to join an extracurricular activity. We try to enforce school spirit as much as possible so that the whole student body can participate in an event. We have so many events that we do around our school and it makes us engaged and we have a fun time! Every year before school, we get informed about Cyber Safety and how to protect ourselves of school shootings. Safety for everyone is the main goal at Illini Bluffs.
One thing that I liked about Illini Bluffs High School is the size because it made it easier to get help from the teachers. I also liked the library at Illini Bluffs because it is a great place to do your homework and focus. One thing that I would change at Illini Bluffs is how the administration had favorites. Unless you were on a sports team most of the administration did not pay much attention to you. I would also change the fact that the school does not have any diversity. There were a few racist incidents were no action was taken. We should teach more about culture so more kids can be educated.
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.
