I came there to independence as young girl coming from Africa. I barely knew English.it was hard for me to communicate with other students. They putted effort for me to understand the language. I put it in my time and effort so I can be like other kids. Do far I have had the best experience by being at independence high school.I learned how to be patient and respectful as a person. Independence has been a life experience for me because of what I learned being there. Academics speaking improved a lot I am a person who cares about my grades a lot.Usually I set higher goals for myself when I don’t achieve those goals it hurts me deeply. Based on where I come from I never thought I’ll get here but here I am thankful for the experience that I’ve had with both teachers and students. At the start of the year I was lost and confused on how the year was going to go for me. I had no friends some of them left me. That didn’t stop me from liking where I am and appreciating what I have in general.
Independence High school is the best columbus city school and our academic system is so good and i love it.
I started high school in 2021 when I just came to the United States. I started as a freshman, and it was really hard for me because I just moved to the United States and did not understand English very well and I also did not have any friends. I did not like the fact the students go smoke in the bathroom and other student bring bullied because they from African. but letter on when I was a junior the school changed a lot of stuff which helped the school a lot. like security was added, before entering the school your checked like in the airport, if any student is reported for bullying, they will get expel and there is no fighting anymore. it's always clean now. and the teaches are super supportive. the school lunch is also improved and there are a lot of games to play in classes when we have nothing to do. it is well developed and safe to be there.
This school has given me a lot of opportunities to take classes that aren't offered anywhere else. I have been able to take community college classes and AP classes while still being in highschool. This has let me get tons of college credit and experience in college level classes. It is not a big school but since it is smaller it gives so many more opportunities such as being able to play basically any sport you want. Independence High School has so much to offer academically, athletically, and socially.
It was a very good school. The teachers were all great. There were tons of class choices and sports were important for the school.
my experience with independence high school was overall great I met great staff who cared about my education and me graduating and staying on track to graduate and also as well as my principal he knew every student and make sure they was on track and stayed out of trouble.
my experience being at independence is that its like any other high school. it has it good moments and its bad moments bu overall its alright.
Independence high is a great school with good and hardworking teachers who try’s their best to see that the student is doing well in their academics.
What I liked most about Independence was the sports programs. Their sports programs always excelled, giving kids to do something out of school that didn't require books.
It’s a kind of crazy school, but it you can make it through it. I would only recommend it if you just wat to get high school over with. I mean like if you got a strong head.
some of the teachers are just there for a paycheck but there are some really cool people there the school building is kinda old but thats about it
Independence High School has all of the necessary resources and opportunities required to give a student a successful, and memorable, high school experience! I have attended I-High for five years, (entering in the 8th) and by my sophomore year I was very involved in sports, the arts, and even scored very well on the ACT. If a student is determined to succeed, they will do very well at Independence High School.
Although there is a lot of disagreements people have with my school, me personal I think its a pretty good school the kids are very supportive. One day we had a talent show and the step team was performing yes we did good but some parts of the show we definitely messed up me and the rest of the team was so embarrassed has we continued to dance the crowd just start cheering more and we gained our confidence and finished strong. Attending independence high school has been a great experience for me , they provide programs such as ALL THAT, Iwomen, and Clean up crew and guess what ? IM IN ALL!! the kids are amazing and the principle is too. He truly cares about all his students he stop in every class room everyday and say good morning to every student literally i'm not joking.
Teachers are very devoted to the students and their learning. the counselors are amazing with guiding you to pick out colleges and further careers. The principal is extremely knowledgeable and taking the time to know every student by name.
Independence High School has consistently been rated as one of the top academic schools in Ohio. IHS has great opportunities for student achievement due to the small personable classes, and the teacher interactions on a personal basis. One thing that should be added are more AP courses for students to take considering the percentage of students that take these advanced courses.
Independence high school was a big change for me, I moved to a big school from a small town school. The teachers was really nice to me, I found it hard to really make a connection with them.
regular not really something to be proud of honestly
