Independence High School Reviews

I highly recommend this high school because the teachers push the students to be the best they can be. They offer many programs to help you grow. The classes are small and you can learn at your own pace. We are rewarded with gift cards and certificates for monthly achievements. I will miss all the staff when I graduate.

My favorite experience at this school was the Spanish class. The Teacher was very helpful and caring. I wouldn't choose this school again because the students doesn't take school serious and mess up opportunity for the kids who does care
The teachers are good teachers however some of the teachers don't put enough effort in all the students.
