It's okay. It's not big enough for the amount of kids that go there, which they should really fix. The musicals are hit or miss and stage crew is a bad environment, which sucks. The hallways get super crowded during passing time and you must learn to weave in between the clumps of students, which gets annoying. However, it is way better than Dake in literally every single way it can be so it has that going for it. They have good electives and okay enough teachers, so it's fine, I guess. Dake was just really terrible and that makes the high school seem way better than it actually is.

Irondequoit High School tries so hard to do things, but nothing changes. Administration only punishes people, not support them in any problems they may have. Counselors only help with college. So many kids are stressed and no one does anything about it. Too much homework, people are smoking and drinking because of the stress. And all the school does is punish them. They don’t care about their students no matter how much they claim they do.
Irondequoit High School holds education very highly, and I have had very positive experiences, in that almost all of my teachers have gone above and beyond in ensuring I excel in my classes. Not only do they care deeply for the students' educations, but they are open and easy to talk to about life and are very invested in the students. This school makes students feel very safe and valued while effectively preparing them to succeed and be prepared in the future.
