I love the positive and supporting environment of Ipswich High School. All my friends and teachers are enthusiastic about education. The administrators also promote a fun and involved learning environment. I was able to balance my extensive involvement in sports and clubs with my rigorous courses. The only thing I think IHS could improve upon is teaching their students about the importance of finding your passion. I felt like a lot of people over involved themselves with activities they didn't actually enjoy just to put them on a college resume. I would have liked to be encouraged to pursue a few specific areas of interest, rather than being pressured to join every club and take every AP class. But overall, I loved high school, and I couldn't be happier with my experience at Ipswich High.

Ipswich High School became a very inclusive and exciting place compared to middle school. Middle School was a time of cliques and judgment, where everyone was nervous to be themselves. As we all grew together, Ipswich High School changed that. I became friends with so many new people and had all types of different friends. I was stress-free each and everyday because of all the opportunities offered and help given by teachers. It is a very friendly environment, and the one thing I would construct would be that the students could use more attention with their ongoing opinions about certain rules in the school.
The teachers at Ipswich High School are very helpful, understanding. The culture at the school is very uplifting; both students and faculty are always positive.
