I like how it’s one on one instruction and the teachers listen to the students. The environment in the school is great and I have not witnessed one kid being bullied or one bullying. It’s overall a great school to be at. I suggest looking into Independence high as a viable option to get around tough schedules or anything else you may be experiencing.

All of the staff take part in helping the students succeed as much as possible and keeping the environment safe and happy. In my time here I have never seen anyone getting bullied; most people that attend Independence are extremely kind and other keep to themselves. Attendance becomes a serious issue when students are not contacting their teachers or doing the homework they have been assigned. Teachers are always in contact with their students so it has yet to be a serious issue. Everyone is supportive, understanding, and wanting students to get the best education possible.
Independence requires everyone (staff and students included) to sign in when entering the school. Safety is a huge part of the school's focus. I have never witnessed bullying, violent behavior, or anything that could cause harm to someone or themselves. The police of the city sometimes patrol the area around Independence and the neighboring high school. Unfortunately, we do not have a school nurse, but if someone is feeling ill a staff member will call their parents and wait with the student until they are picked up.
