Inderkum CAN be a great school. Some of the teachers do not care if you fail their class or not, they won’t always give you tutoring and help. But there are teachers who truly care about your grades and who you are going to be in the future and will go out of their way to help you. For the most part Inderkum student wise is pretty cool, the students are all so diverse you can get a taste of every culture and it helps Form an open mind to all cultures races, nationalities and religions. I have met so many students from Indonesia, Philippines, China, Japan, India, El Salvador, Mexico, Africa, Afghanistan, Pakistan Italy and more! It is amazing to see all these cultures clash together.

Inderkum high school is an excellent school for many different reasons. It is extremely diverse and all students are equally welcome. Academic wise, Inderkum offers three special programs for their students. There is the International Baccalaureate (IB), the California Early College Academy (CECA), and the Advance Placement (AP). Despite the fact that there are three different programs available, Inderkum itself is classified as an official IB school. I am currently enrolled in the IB program, and it is a very rigorous program encouraging their students to be open minded, inquiring, balanced and reflective learners. There are also many clubs, activities and sports to get involved with.
I am in a program called the California Early College Academy.I became part of what we call the "CECA Family."I was able to meet new people, take advantage of college readiness classes, & most importantly I was able to take classes at American River College. My experience revolves around meeting people and join diversity clubs, volunteer opportunities, sports, and college readiness programs. I played soccer, cheerleading, volunteered in National Honor Society, Key Club, Poly club, & Link Crew.One change that I would like to see & implemented is more access to the counselors because I would never be able to find them at the right time & admin was not as strict. Students would go off campus,when not allowed,yet admin did not do much to stop students, and the aftermath of the actions were not dealt with seriously. Inderkum is a welcoming campus & has been a great experience. Thanks to Inderkum, I am who I am today & am motivated to further my education, explore & experience!
