Indiana Area Senior High School Reviews

Most activities here are revolved around and focused on sports. Most clubs deal with sports, most after-school activities are sports. The poor theater program in always underfunded, and even had to look to the community this year just to pay for what they need! All clubs that 'develop leadership skills' are filled with the same 'type' of student. Other clubs aren't taken seriously (such as the foreign language clubs), but I enjoy mine. It's hard for a student like me whose interests aren't like the majority of students who do Key Club or are athletic or are just typical. There are students, like myself, who have interests in things that don't have opportunities which then makes it hard later in life when we're applying to colleges and can't provide many extracurricular activities because we won't force ourselves to join a club or activity we don't enjoy.

Indiana High school has very good teachers and staff, but often times technology is used in place of teaching. Teachers are pushed to include activities on Chromebooks and other devices. This leads to teachers not teaching the class and students becoming confused and not knowing the material. The school is safe and clean. I do not think the classes prepare people for college because it is extremely easy to excel in them.
Indiana Area Senior High School is a great school in an academic regard, but there are several factors I would like to see changed. First, I would like more Advanced Placement class options. Our choices are very limited. Second, I would like to see more opportunities for socializing, as well as possibly some more rennovations because our school is quite disgusting in some regards. Overall, our school is pretty great, but it could be better.
