Independence High School Reviews
Independence High School does a good job of making every student feel cared for in any situation. Though it is a fairly young school, there is an abundance of school spirit and pride. Almost each and every student is proud to be a Knight! However, high schools across Frisco ISD could do a better job of preparing students for college. College is a totally different ball game, and students need to understand how it's different, how it works, and be prepared for it.
Independence high school was a great experience for me. I learned to grow within myself while going out of my comfort zone and experiencing new things. Through the many courses that I took at independence, I have expanded my knowledge and felt very produce at this school. Independence created many opportunities for me that I have very much appreciated. This school provides amazing academics, safety, opportunities, college readiness, as well as interactive activities like sports. Overall, this school was an eye opening experience and I am glad I went to Independence High School.
Independence High School has a great student community. Not only do we have countless clubs and organizations for all different types of interest but students also provide a competitive environment that inspires success in others. However, the faculty at IHS is lacking. Most teachers at our school lack the ability or focus to teach and students tend to rely on self-studying to pass their exams. Additionally, the administration at the school is very impartial and unfair to students and the counselors are not supportive.
