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 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.
This school offers a great selection of academic programs. Most notable, the IB program and the CECA program. If a student is attending classes within these programs then the classes are intimate and the students are placed in a competitive learning environment where students are, for the majority of the time, respectful and participant. However, the classroom environment for students not part of these programs is drastically different. Many students lack respecting their teachers and do not mind disrupting the class. If interested in this school, definitely consider the academic programs. As far as school events, Inderkum definitely, all hands down, has the best events that are fun semi-afforable.
