Irmo High School is an amazing place to be! Irmo welcomes diverse arts and academic programs and gives it's students the chance to take charge of opportunities that aren't present in other schools. Irmo gives its students the chance to become leaders in an environment where the idea of normal is challenged daily. Take it from me. It's my senior year at Irmo, and over the past three and a half years, I've successfully created and ran a haunted event twice, taught and performed multiple routines for the dance team, participated in over five school clubs each year, and pushed myself to endure rigorous IB academic courses. Irmo has teachers that are determined to get their students on the right path, talented students that are persistent, and administrators willing to devote their time to the needs of students. I can't say everyone's experience with Irmo has been or will ever be great, but my I can say that my experience has been one to remember and has had a positive effect on my life.

I love the diversity at Irmo High School. There are so many staff and students that come from different backgrounds, allowing to learn many different things. Moving to Irmo High was one of the best decisions I could have made for myself. The staff is amazing, and there is always someone for you to talk too. Everyone is so supportive!
We love the International Baccalaureate programs! Very impressive that the school offers four languages: Spanish, French, German, and Mandarin Chinese. My son has had an excellent education there.
