I’ve grown up in Imlay City for my whole life, and have gone to Imlay City Communitu Schools since preschool. I am so happy that I got to grow up in a small town like this and go to a school like this. What I really like about my high school is that it’s smaller, and everyone is involved in everything no matter what. Teachers are coaches to sports teams, teachers here really really care about their students and helping them get grades above failing, and getting students who don’t necessarily want to graduate, to graduate. I wouldn’t have wanted to go to school anywhere else but here. I love all of my teachers now, and all of them previously. A lot of them have even helped me get through some tough situations and for that I’m forever grateful for.

I have had a very positive experience at Imlay City High School. I've always felt safe and well cared for. The staff is constantly encouraging students to work hard and as Principal Eddy always says, "Do your best learning!" The only thing that needs improving are the bathrooms. Many of the doors do not lock and some of the stalls are missing doors all together. Also, some of the sinks do not work. The bathrooms have been in poor condition for my past 3 years in high school, but I am hopeful that they will be fixed this year. Overall, Imlay City High School has given me a very positive high school experience and I look forward to finishing out my last year there.
My school doesn’t have that many unique corses. It also lacks in basic teacher student understandings. The only corses offered at our school worth taking are that fine arts classes. I would like to see a new principal, preferably one who knows how to correlate punishment to offense.
