Ingraham High School Reviews
The whole school is centered around IB, if a student had no plans to do IB they have no other options to challenge their education besides running start. IB is good for many students and it heavily prepares children for rigorous college classes but the extra workload that comes with it for many isn't worth the lack of sleep. Many of my first two years of classes were very easy A's that made me feel like I may have not really learned anything substantial. On the other hand, the IB teachers are all pretty amazing in my experience but outside of IB it seemed the standard was low. Diversity in this school is very separated as the majority of students in IB were white while in other classes more diversity occurred. The administration at Ingraham has it's ups and downs. There are many adults available for student help but often times the principle was not very helpful or open to change.
This school is great. Teachers are very smart and easy to talk to. They all care about you gaining knowledge and about your life beyond high school. I have created some really great relationships with my teachers that helped me to get through high school. Classes are a regular size about 25-30 students I’d say. Every student gets enough attention from the teacher. The environment is very friendly in general and most of the people there are great and easy to talk to. The campus is pretty big too. They have a main basketball court and another gym downstairs that is split in two, so technically three inside gyms. They also have a huge football field, soccer field, baseball field and tennis courts. They have a pool too but it’s not a school property but is right by the school parking lot. The cafeteria food is the only thing that I would change about that school. But overall it’s a great school and very practical.
I liked the IB program, because it helps kids be prepared for college. It offers it a year early (sophomore and junior year), which I thought was a great idea. It gave me more time to focus on college applications senior year instead of being bombarded with homework. The sport teams aren't very good, but being a fan is still fun. The library and the AC are good spots to hang out. Something negative that comes to mind is that IB classes aren't very diverse, with almost everyone being white or Asian.
