Ingraham High School Reviews

I really enjoyed the size of the school and the sense of community that comes with having a smaller high school in a big city. The social scene wasn't cliquey and everyone got along very well. The sports teams weren't very strong but school spirit and pride was high which made attending school sporting events really fun! The classes offered were super interesting as Ingraham has the IB program, offering higher level classes that were stimulating and prepared students well for college.

Tufts was good and bad. The science department is the school's Achilles heel, as the head of the department is not a skilled teacher, and the rest of the department are generally in their first 5 years of teaching. The IB program is a stellar opportunity for students around the city, and allows for a college level education at a high school. School spirit is generally high and the faculty really want the best for their students. The history and English Departments are particularly good. Sports teams may not be the highest scoring in the district, although all students are encouraged to participate in at least one physical activity. Clubs are heavily attended, and Principal Floe is a great administrator.
I really enjoyed Ingraham High School and I feel very prepared for college. It has a very wide array of opportunities for people to succeed in (like sports, drama, and classes). I especially like how welcoming it is; it really feels like home!
