Indian river high school has a large amount of kids from the military base near by, so the students are very diverse. The students make it easy for new students to find their way around the school, which is very nice.
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.
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 High School, part of the Indian River Central School District, is easily the best high school in Jefferson County; it has the best music programs, a great selection of sports to play, one of the largest class sizes around, and very good facilities.
I started at Indian River my junior year. The people are very accepting and bullying isnt a huge problem at this school. The classes are average and easily passable if you put the work in.
There is a welcoming environment for new students. There is plenty to do in terms of clubs, activities, and sports. There are many classes to choose from, including college classes, and the teachers are reasonable and kind (at least my teachers are).
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.
The school has a great atmosphere and the teachers are here to help you if you have a problem,the guidance councilor help you the most with getting ready for college as you have a senior meeting and they tell you what you need to take such as classes and hlye much points you still need to graduate.
Indian River High School is a very lovely school. The staff tries their hardest to make sure you feel welcomed and at home. There are a lot of clubs that you can join and the sports are a benefit too! :)
I love how many classes are offered at this high school. It is located near a military base so there is diversity and everyone is so nice and expecting.
I would not choose to go to this school again because i strongly disliked my peers and I didnt feel like the faculty treated us as if we were about to go into the real world.
Atheletes are given special treatment by teachers and other staff members.
They have a lot of opportunities.
It was a fun high school.
All teachers are different and some are good and some are ok.
There is a wide variety of activities for students to take part in.
They generally are focused on state tests and students passing.

They have a police officer on hand in case of issues. They also have DASA (Dignity for All Students Act) in place. All parents have to sign in and out of the school. Everybody is required to have shots and physicals. Also they practice bus and fire drills on a regular basis.
The school focus is more on school tests then anything else in the learning environment. If a student has good grades then the teachers and the guidance don't have much concern for the students. Their concern is only that the students are passing there classes.
It can be very hard for some students to learn with common core
