Independence High was the school that helped me the most in my life. While I was under major mental duress, my transfer to Independence kept me going and eventually, I was able to graduate from high school. The teachers and staff there are so kind. I can feel their genuine concern for their students and I can see them radiate positivity to support students everyday. I am truly grateful this school exists, because without it, I wouldn't be able to move on from my failures and look forward to my potential success. Thank you, Independence High!
