Most of the teachers are great educators and are always trying to improve their methods of teaching for the better of the students. Also, school spirit amongst both administrators and students is never a problem as everyone is always shouting "Tiger Pride" in the halls, at assemblies, and school sports events. It is a small world where my school is located, which makes it easier to get to know everyone and there's never any ethnic or social cliques or discrimination towards anyone. This school is definitely one that leads by example of a healthy, happy, and academic environment.

As a student at Imperial High School, I've been granted many opportunities in various fields of studies. The environment of the school welcomes everyone in with warm arms. However, since the school is so academically involved, there isn't much of any fun/spontaneous events that take place due to an excessive amount of strict rules. Overall, the school is great and has many programs that'll prepare the students for their futures.
Sadly, this is my last year as a student, but I know I will forever will always be a Tiger at heart. Imperial High School has brought many friendships, families, and the entire community all together. Everybody in Imperial takes pride for our school. Not just our teachers only teaching us the important education which we will need for college, but also teaching us the life skills we will need in the future. Our teachers at Imperial High School are not just regular ordinary teachers, but they're also people who we can go to if we are ever feeling down. Literally when they say that if we ever need anything their door is always open for anybody for anything. Senior year is the best year I've seen because we have so much spirit. Student sections at all sports and other activities is amazing to me because we all show that we care about what Imperial High School does. I take pride in this school and I'm thankful for this school giving me the best education and best of memories.
