The rich culture of the school encourages students to brake the norms of high school.I am a current Senior at IHS and I can honestly say that this school has pushed me to be the best student I possibly could have been. Almost every student at IHS is involved in sports, music, the arts and other clubs and organizations in and outside of the school; on top of academics. The culture of IHS is something unforgettable, everyone at Ipswich wants to see the best for there students and fellow peers weather that is student to student or even between faculty members. There is still lots to be done at the school to make it even better yet its still moving steadily in the right direction. All the staff members at IHS love and respect their students and its this respect and admiration that is reciprocated back towards the staff from the students. In all IHS is an amazing high school that is really making an impact on all of their students life's.

Overall, Ipswich high school was a great environment for stable learning. Ipswich offers a wide variety of academics and arts programs, that will suit everyone in some way shape or form. One area I got a lot out of in my four years here, was the music and arts program. Ipswich has an absolutely incredible music program that will set you on the right path to success. Because music is my chosen career, I took advantage of their unique courses such as music theory, symphony orchestra, chamber orchestra, bel canto, etc. these course have absolutely succeeded to make me a greater student, and individual overall. The creativity is always flowing at Ipswich high.
I have enjoyed my 4 years at Ipswich High School. The teachers and guidance counselors have been great. Academically, I feel prepared for college. Participating in sports (soccer and track) has helped me gain confidence both independently, and working as a team.
