Inderkum High School Reviews

All Categories
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!

Inderkum High School is a diverse high school with individuals who come a variety of ethnic, racial, economic, and personal backgrounds and doesn't affect how students view and treat each other. Inderkum High School administration teaches students that everyone are equal and that the success of all students in athletics, academics, and life is a priority of school staff. The teachers of Inderkum's rigorous academic programs provide students with pragmatic instruction and content that will provide them with a realistic college life experience. Inderkum ensures that students can prosper in an environment that emphasizes their strengths whether its in sports, their studies, clubs, etc. Inderkum favors school spirit as it advises students to become a part of the school community to highlight and praise all parts of what the school has to offer, including, but not limited to: athletics, academics, visual and performing arts, community service and many others.
Inderkum High School has a well-curated outside appearance due to the PTA and a school district that prioritized public image or true success of their schools. Students have the opportunities to succeed if they enroll in IB classes, however, outside of IB classes teachers are overworked, under-valued, exhausted and tired of the administration and districts BS. Even in AP classes, many students are disrespectful and the teachers are so tired of being under-appreciated by the administration that they will do nothing to keep education the primary focus of the class.

The administration not only disregards the needs of the teachers but often responds to parent and student's valid concerns with flippancy. The administration has no follow through on issues and irresponsibly allocates money to areas of the school that only improve public image rather than day to day education success and student satisfaction.
