My experience at Inderkum High has been pretty amazing actually. When I first attended Inderkum as a freshman in 2015 I was scared. It was a new environment, new school, and new friends. But I’ve grown to love the school because Link Crew helped me find my way through high school, I challenged my education by being in the International Baccalaureate program (IB), I joined my first sport (men’s volleyball for 4 years counting this upcoming season), joined many clubs, won homecoming prince 2x, I’m an ASB officer, and I have made many diverse friends as our school is ranked 2nd most diverse school in the U.S. Overall, my expectations of high school have exceeded my reality of being college and career ready once I graduate in the spring of 2019!

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.
I had a great high school experience at Inderkum High School for one because I was enrolled in the CECA program and it allowed me to start taking college classes as a junior. I also liked my high school because of the diversity and the support my counselors showed me all four years. I loved having football, baseball, and other sports games to look forward to at the end of the week to hang out with my friends and create memories!
