My experience at Irmo High School was a positive one. I was involved in several activities while there including JV and Varsity Football, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, and Project Lead the Way in Engineering. I was able to take classes at the Center for Advanced Technical Studies and was involved in the Engineering Track while there. Irmo High School was great fo me!

Irmo High School expects a lot out of its' students. The administration team and principals all push students in the direction they need to be in whether it be a certain college or just keeping grades up. The opportunities presented to us with being an Arts Magnet school are almost limitless everything from our theatre program, to choir, visual arts, and even bagpipes!
At my high school there are no walls around race. The comradery of the school is what I most cherish.Our school is very very diverse, our school has a lot of international students because we are an International Academic Magnet school. At Irmo there's no major high school clique, you have the star football players hanging out and talking to a "nobody". Our administration emphasize the importance of supporting everyone and that's what happens here. Also, the love that the teachers show for the kids is evident. If there was one thing I would like to change would be the reputation of Irmo. To be blunt, our school is 65% African American, and the surrounding schools in our district are majority white. So people around us think that we are bad because we are "black". The thought of people believing that and telling people that sickens me. So, if their was one thing I would fix is the reputation of MY school, because if you ask me its the best high school a person could go to.
