Indian Land High School Reviews

Indian Land High School exceeded my expectations academic-wise. There are many honors and AP classes offered here, which many students sign up for. The curriculum is rigorous in all classes, and counselors are highly knowledgeable and will gladly answer any questions a student has to the best of their ability. However, I think Indian Land is a cheap school. They do not spend much money on providing students with certain handy materials like quality paint for Art class or updated calculators for Math class, etc. Nonetheless, the cafeteria food is pretty good and the environment is safe. Also, there is a club for almost anything here! From art club to languages to LGBTQ club, there will definitely be a club for everyone to fit into. There is not much diversity, which sucks.

Overall, good experience. More options for classes would be/would've been nice, but classes they did have are taught fairly well. Diversity underrated here, school is definitely majority white, but there is definitely a fair mix. Teachers help get good grades throughout high school, but only handful help prepare for college. There are a few clubs at the school that are handled well, but there need to be a lot more and more communication about how to join or apply. Safe overall, but concerned to a point of minor inconvenience. Culture is okay, not a huge emphasis. Administration can be irrational and poorly organized sometimes, but nothing too major. Sports are poorly funded and rarely are successful. I bring my lunch, but food is definitely scraping the bottom of the standards. Resources are there, but rarely ever available to help. Facilities do their job, nothing to complain about nor praise. Parents are rarely involved overall. Good school.
My time at Indian Land High School was pleasant, both in terms of academics and experience. Entering high school, I was an average student with little academic success, and did not have a broad knowledge about college and the outside world itself. However, due to the friendly environment, passionate teachers, and well organized curriculum at Indian Land High School, I have developed myself into a straight A student hoping for a bright future. Indian Land High School brings a large diversity thanks to the growing population of the Indian Land Community itself. With increasing diversity, the school provides a good balance of students, who are friendly and accept newcomers.
To improve Indian Land High School, I would strengthen the cell-phone policy. For nearly all teachers, cell phones are not permitted during instructions, however time after time I see students glued to their smartphone, showing blatant disrespect to his or her instructor.
