Ipswich High School has provided me with tremendous opportunities in a personal environment. Each student is adequately provided with the attention that they need to be successful in academics and beyond. I have continuously been blown away by the eagerness of all teachers and staff members to provide a student with what they need to be successful. There is an array of online courses offered for students who are interested in courses that are not taught at Ipswich. Plenty of extra curricular activities are offered for students including, art club, band, vocal, theater, oral interpretation, student government, athletics, and even more student organizations! Attending Ipswich High School will provide you with an excellent education, lifelong relationships, and incredible experiences!

At this school, there are several opportunities for extracurricular activities. Whether you enjoy to play sports, educational clubs, or business related clubs, there is something here for you! We have football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, cheer leading, track and field, and cross country. There is also art club, drama club, music club, all school play, pep band, drum line, and show choir. Lastly, we have Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and National Honor Society (NHS). One of our most popular school club is NHS which is available to students who excel in their school work. They provide a tutoring program for students, fund raise, and every other year they go on a educational trip to Washington D.C., and New York. I attended this trip last year and it was the best time of my life.
It's an excellent school for people interested in athletics. Academics appear to be pushed to the side in favor of focusing on cross country and track. Most of the teachers are excellent, yet the entire school is terrible with diversity.
