As in other Texas high schools, football is the most important thing in the fall. Band is a close second, because of the winning streak. In the winter, basketball is important. Academics is not that highly cared for. The principal says it's the most important thing; however, if a student is struggling, or a teacher is bad, there isn't enough support. ICHS doesn't really have cliques, just slightly divided between grades. There are absolutely no clubs besides Beta. The diversity is a joke. There are students who wanted to dress up as the KKK, and did not realize why that was offensive. There is no college prep, nor is there any help from the counselor. Safety is good, being from a small town.

The extracurricular activities that are available are great, well funded, supported, involved. However they are severely limited. The size of the school limits the number of activities, but some organizations are second-rate for no discernible reason. The best example of this would be the local chapter of the National Beta Club. Beta Club is the only honors organization offered to students, which unnecessarily punishes students who are eligible for organizations such as the National Honors Society.
The school overall is very good. The administration is great, with one exception. The principal is a joke. The student body is so well behaved, he has to start making new policies to get people in trouble. The school allows ripped jeans, the next year they don't. Water is allowed in the building, the next year it merits lunch detention. The principal spends more time roaming the halls trying to catch students doing something wrong than he does in his office.
