Illinois Valley Central High School Reviews
The thing that I love most about Illinois Valley Central is all of the activities you can be in and the people that attend. I have learned that what you put into the school is what you get out of it. The more that I am involved, the more fun it is!
The sports at IVC are slowly decreasing, there are a few players on every team that are very committed and love their sport, but the majority seem to just be on the teams because that's what they've always done. They act like going to practice is a waste of time. Few of the coaches are genuinely liked and it seems like they easily get sucked into petty high school drama. But the ones that are are really great people who care about each individual athlete. The music department is incredible, its always been very strong and feels like a family. However, there is a massive divide between the "jocks" and the "geeks." Not that there isn't overlap between the two but neither groups support the other in any way.
IVC is overall a positive experience, the students are outgoing and fun, but there is a lack in school spirit that shows with the attendance at activities. By the second half of a football game the stands are empty and the sentence, "lol IVC sucks at everything" is not unheard. But there is an odd sense of community throughout Chillicothe that supports the school and keeps the clubs and music department strong.
