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.

These past four years at Irondequoit High School have been such a learning and growing experience for me. Whether it was a positive or negative, I was able to able to walk away with a new experience. As I reflect on the rest of my high school experiences, I can say each year got better for me with my academics and athletics. I was on honor roll, captain of my soccer team, and a leader in classes. I have encountered many great teachers that have made learning fun and my confidence level stronger!
My Highschool career has been nothing short of memorable. Over the past four years I have participated in many activities that the school offers. I have been in student council for 3 years, helped back stage or been in the annual spring musicals and took numerous great classes. The wide variety of classes students can take is great, I took an auto class one year and orchestra the next. I cannot say that this school lacks in providing options for students pursuing any career. The atmosphere of extra curricular activities, especially sports, is very spirited. The students always tend to show up and support our teams. Teachers and staff are also very helpful, they will always take the time to help you understand your materials. As a senior, I'm quite sad that my school career is getting cut short due to Covid-19 because I've had a fantastic run at Irondequoit High School.
