Indian River High School has been a wonderful place for me to further my education and prepare for my future at a university. I have been a very involved student, and Indian River High School has provided a plethora of opportunities to do so. The majority of staff and students are very kind, and willing to go the extra mile to help one another. I am grateful to Indian River High School for providing me with a safe and sufficient environment to learn and grow. The school has a wonderful academic program, and encouraged me to try AP classes. I have already gained college credit from two of those classes, and intend to pass three more before graduation! The administration does an excellent job at limiting distractions from the learning process in an appropriate but effective manner. Overall, I've thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Indian River High School.

I am this year a senior at my high school. School throughout my high school years has been great. I have met a lot of great friends and get sport team and club team mates. All the teachers I have had have been wonderful on making me successful and the great well rounded student I am today. I recommend this school district! The staff is wonderful, the teachers are the best, and all the after school activities like band, sports, clubs etc....
Indian River High School gives you the opportunity to express yourself through anything really. All the teachers there if you need help they will take the time to help whether if its after school or before school even lunch time if you need it. Bullying is non tolerate in this school if anyone is messing with you, you can go to either the principal or guidance counselor and they will stop what they are doing and handle it. Whenever you feel afraid or alone there are so many guidance counselors that will talk about what ever you need to talk about that is why this school is so excellent. Their main priority is you.
