Good academics and good athletics. The school is very "vanilla" in my opinion: it isn't really known for anything in particular besides being a good school. By far the worst part of IHS is how separate students in the IB program are from students outside of the program--particularly in grades 11 and 12. The IB program is also entirely white/Asian, with virtually zero diversity. The school has done little to combat the inequities between these different programs. Teachers are also painfully average, especially those for the lower grades. The IB teachers are generally very good.

Overall I think Ingraham is a fairly good school, however there are a few glaring issues that could be solved in order to create a better learning environment for every student. The IB program at Ingraham is predominantly white students and IHS administration does nothing to change that. Furthermore, the counselors are very overworked and unable to be totally helpful in the college application process while also helping all of the other students of other grades. Finally, there are a few teachers employed here that the admin knows are problematic yet refuses to take action against them. The gender neutral bathrooms were a big step as well as the wide variety of inclusive clubs, sports and organizations.
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.
