While the teachers are quite supportive of the students, and college readiness is definite, the school has no diversity. Some staff have prejudiced tendencies, specifically against the few african-american kids here. Many of the kids of color are urban-suburban students, which is a good program. As a poc student here, i’ve only had a few problems with staff and administration, but in this school, if you aren’t living in the district and you have darker skin, there’s less of a chance that they’ll listen to you. As a positive, there’s a variety of sports teams to join in this school, and the field house is very close. There are many Advanced Placement classes, plus a variety of electives to take. The art, business, and auto departments are well supported, but the music department has had so many budget cuts. The chorus room isn’t fit for the amount of students, as it used to be a storage closet! The school is mediocre, poor quality, but that’s just my personal experience.

I enjoyed my experience at Irondequoit High School because of the myriad of activities and courses that were offered. From different Advanced Placement Courses, to music and art programs, Irondequoit High School gives students a lot of activities to participate in. Although diversity was somewhat an issue, I see the school making strides to change this.
When I attended, it was very welcoming. While its hard to avoid having any bullying, I didin't see it as a major problem at this school. I knew a lot of kids who got bullied for theater in other high schools but no one gave me any grief for being a male theater kid. There where a lot of different and diverse electives you can take at this school which is something I found impressive. There was a class for any interest which made it easy to try new things.
