I really like Ingraham. People are very accepting here and everyone is pretty kind; I feel like people are less judgemental at IHS than at other high schools in the area (i.e. Roosevelt, Ballard, etc). The teachers are caring and great. There are a lot of places to eat around the campus. I have met some of my best friends here! There is a big difference though between IB and non-IB and the two groups tend not to interact very much, which is not good.

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.
The community of students and teachers was really great, and the overall climate of the school was welcoming. Some teachers were better than others, but none were terrible. There were a variety of clubs and student organizations to join. I was not personally involved with sports here, but from what I heard the programs seemed good, but not perfect. The building itself is fairly old, but there are some new additions that are very nice. The cafeteria food was average (same food as every public high school in Seattle). The cafeteria itself is small, but this is not an issue because students can eat lunch wherever they want in the building, which gives a nice amount of freedom. I personally recommend the International Baccalaureate program offered here to anyone looking for a comprehensive accelerated program that prepares you very well for college.
