I have found my “people” here. I started school in a huge district, Katy Tx, and wasn’t doing well in grades or activities. Since moving here in 7th grade, I’ve gone from a c student (and would cry because I had to go to school) to a now A/B student in NHS. I’m heavily involved with all things band and theater. Ve got great friends and I really look forward to each school year. IPCISD gave me a smaller environment for the help, encouragement and opportunities I need to excel.
My time at Iowa Park High School had its ups and downs. I was in many different art programs, and I felt as though they didn't put much at all into any others as they did the band, as Iowa Park was very focused on its football team, and thus the marching band. I thouroughly enjoyed the digital art and 3d art classes, and the art teacher herself was spectacular, but they felt very looked over and, in my opinion, could have used more love and attention.
As someone who graduated recently from IPHS in 2022, I would say it was a great High School and I feel I was prepared for further education after graduating. I was heavily involved in SkillsUSA through my automotive class, which helped me find my passion for becoming a future diesel mechanic. Through SkillsUSA, I found my current college where I am currently taking a Diesel Technician program.
Iowa Park High School is a great school to have your children attend. It has a high academic rate, with amazing staff and teachers. The biggest downside to the school, I would say, is the lack of diversity. Iowa Park is a very small town where everyone knows everyone else. Though diversity is not something you can really control, it is the only real issue at the school.
Overall it was a rather decent High School experience. Nothing out of the blue happened and I was taught well
Going here was okay. Its a small school, so you know most people in your class. The people here are usually pretty welcoming to new people. The academics are okay, but the math department is not good at all. There is not really any clubs, but there are classes that do things outside of school. I was in band, and although it wasn’t the best, it was really great. The band really is one big family, and are always there for you, even if its not music related. The directors are also super understanding. They are “strict” at times, but thats what makes our band so good. Iowa Park is one of the very few schools that I have seen where football actually appreciates them. I’d definitely say the best thing about this school is the way everyone is so accepting.
I love Iowa Park High School! It’s a very tight community. I would like to see the more recognition with girl sports.
Iowa Park HS is very friendly and welcoming. I moved here from out of state and didn't know anyone. I was welcomed right away. I would like to see more college classes offered.
I have loved being a student at IPISD! I am a part of our Varsity softball team as well as other clubs in the school. I am taking dual enrollment courses too!!
The educational environment at Iowa Park High School is lacking consistency and continuity. Teachers would rather be left alone rather than to see and help their students succeed. Rules only apply to some students but not others. Safety overall is not much of a priority to teachers and administration. Many staff members appear to despise their job. Professionalism is not a priority among many of the staff members and this has been made clear on many different occasions.
Iowa park high school is a well put together school. I've had alot of trouble with school but the teachers are amazing at what they do.
Iowa Park HS is overall a good school. It's on the smaller side with a total of about 500 students and an average of 125 graduation classes this is both good and bad, classes are on the smaller side but, with fewer people, I found as a senior transfer that it was harder to get involved because most students have been in that district through kindergarten. The administration is kind, but we had some issues with them getting things done promptly and had to beg them to do simple things with registration. I have found that most staff members are nice as well and care about their job, and students. As a small-town school, the entire town buys into the school spirit, especially during football season. IPHS also has a large FFA, and robotics programs, but not many other clubs or other activities to seam involved in. Again I overall enjoyed my time at Iowa Park HS and if you end up landing in small-town Iowa Park you won't be disappointed in the school district as a whole.
Some teachers are amazing, however, some are terrible. You get a mixed bag. There are some who have truly helped me, while others have broken me down or seem like they hate their jobs.
The high school is very strict, but safe. The food isn’t that great but they provide what they can. They try their best to help students succeed and graduate.
I like most of the course offerings and opportunities, however, I would like to see AP classes offered
I think Iowa Park High School is an excellent school that emphasizes the importance of students to make good decisions and develop life skills that will carry with them for the rest of their lifetime. This school/school system teaches students overall to have good character and gives them a pretty decent education. To contradict all of this, there isn't much diversity among the student body, and by this, I mean that the majority of the students are of white or Hispanic descent. The school does give six college dual credit courses through Vernon College, which gives the students a bit of a taste of college life, in a sense. The schools are all very safe within this district because each of the four campus locations has an on-duty police officer and electronically locked doors for no intruders to get past. Overall I believe that students will come out of this school with a very different approach to life to be successful.
I like that the classes are usually smaller and you can choose which classes you wish to take so students are able to get a more personalized learning experience. Also, everyone has a ton of school spirit.
