When I attended Independence, I felt like the teachers cared about my future. I could tell that my teachers wanted me to be successful. They were always encouraging me and expected great things from me. Most of the teachers are very helpful and are always willing to help a child in need, whether it me will school life or home life. The faculty was/is very strict but it was/is for the betterment of the student body.

The expenses are high .I like the field trip and some of the teachers.This school is average.WE get to wear regular clothes instead of uniforms but the staff are very strict when it comes to the uniform policy.
I really loved my high school experience. I had a great time with friends and teachers. It is a very small school out in the country, so they don't have the best of everything, but I fully believe they make the best out of everything they have.
