Independence High School Reviews

I love my high school. It's small and there's much less drama. The teachers are extremely supportive. They will bend over backwards to help you as long as your willing to put in the effort. The students are friendly and in class we have fun learning. The teachers challenge you with curriculum because they know you and they know what your best work looks like.
