Indian River High School Reviews

IRHS is a good school, especially when compared to the other schools around the area. That’s mostly due to the large amount of military funding that we get from Fort Drum. Overall, I’ve enjoyed IRHS. I think it’s amazing how good our arts programs are. A the school supports the arts just as much as sports. There’s a huge student involvement when it comes to extracurriculars. We have something for everyone, from football to anime club. However, I wish the guidance counselors were more helpful. I only see my guidance counselor once a year to discuss my future for 15 minutes before they move onto the next student. However, if you really need help or guidance, you can always seek it out. But you have to look for it. They won’t reach out to you first. There’s also a huge bus driver shortage which is leaves us with late buses going to two towns. Sometimes, it take me 2 hours to get home if I stay after school for an extracurricular. But other than that, IRHS is an amazing school.

Personally, coming all the way from Hawaii to New York into this schooling system it was a huge change. The students and staff were very welcoming and already had people ready to show me around. The teacher's play a very active role in our education, by always checking to make sure we maintain our grades. They push us to make sure we have everything aligned to apply for colleges or whatever we would like to do after high school.
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.
