Overall, there isn't anything about Ionia that is particularly good or bad - it really us just a kind of mediocre school. There are a handful of teachers who teach well and are generally nice people, but a majority of the teachers and staff are simply average and okay at their jobs. Our school spirit isn't particularly above average, either, and neither is our sports teams (who often lose at games and competitions, although the football turnout is nice), really the only area I think Ionia may excel at is in Arts, as our marching band, concert band, and symphonic band all do very well at Districts and Band festivals

At Ionia High School, I've been given the opportunity to be myself, be bold, and to be real. Not only has this school been a welcoming environment, but it has also been an environment that has pushed me to do my very best. I have learned study habits, how to be a kinder person, and what my purpose in life is. For these reasons, I wouldn't change a thing about IHS.
Ionia High Schools has some very good teachers who are exceptionally kind, caring, and try to do what's in the best interest of the students. There is a wide variety of elective classes to choose from, including everything from video technology to ceramics/ sculpture building. Ionia High School is not very racially diverse, but is very diverse in other aspects including religion.
