The student-teacher relationships are amazing. The classes are small so the teachers have more time to really connect with their students and get them to learn, not just memorize. It gives the students a chance to get help and alleviates some stress about not knowing certain subjects.

My experience at Indian Creek High school so far is pretty decent. This year starting at the high school, as I'm a freshman this year, I see many flaws along with everything. There is only two hallways like a T shape. This means it's a very small school, so you don't have many teachers. If one retires it is not an easy task to replace them. Also many subjects are taught by one teacher. Another flaw is that in many lockers there are ants, we have had brown recluse spiders at the school, and we have rodents and roaches. This may be because we are surrounded by corn fields on many sides or just because the building is old- my father graduated from this school. As for the positives in this school, they are working on making it better. They are repairing some of the rooms, they are trying to get devices for every student and are trying to make school an enjoyable place. The school is on its way to becoming more modern.
I love the fact that school has a lot of after school clubs and sports, I would like to see more sports be added like football. But other than that I like the teacher choices and many activities.
