Indian River High School Reviews

Everyone is very welcoming to military families, which is good since most of the kids in the school are in fact military. The school is very clean most of the time, and the faculty members make themselves known throughout the school. They do their best to make your opportunities known to you, and attempt to give everyone a chance to take academically challenging classes. Many kids seem to be invested in sports and other extracurricular activities, and these activities have been represented pretty well. Overall, I am satisfied with the school, and I hope to take advantage of their opportunities.

Indian River is not a bad school to attend, especially for the Upstate area. Although the surrounding schools and areas are on the poor side, Indian River has very good funding thanks to the large military base nearby. The principal, Troy Decker, is a beyond amazing educator who cares about each student personally. This is a great high school for people of any interest; there is an incredibly strong theater program and an equally strong athletic counterpart. For the most part, the faculty is great.
I have had a very positive experience at Indian River. There are so many opportunities to connect with other and meet other students; wither it's at one of the many clubs offered, through the music program, or even in the theater there is a place for everyone. Academically the school offers free tutoring from other students, and most teachers regularly stay after to assist any students wanting help. The only thing about Indian River that I can complain about would be the food, I would suggest you pack your lunch.
