Ironton High School is very family orientated and the community supports each other throughout and everyday basis. Whether it’s coming to sporting events, plays, or even academic assemblies, everyone is always there. One thing I’d like to see change about Ironton High is to make it more diverse. I feel like living in a small town there’s not going to be much diversity throughout the area, but I think we should try our hardest to welcome more cultures and ethnicities. Overall, I believe Ironton High has helped me grow as a young women and the classes have prepared me for college life in the future.

My experience has been over the top her at Ironton. They have great education and they push you to work hard on your grades everyday! The school is always clean everyday and you tell how hard our janitors work! The food is absolutely amazing and the food staff always works the hardest to make sure everyone has something to eat either their vegan, vegetarian, or if your an athlete with a special kind of diet! Ironton has the best hard working staff I know. The school is very supporting with all academics, sports, or all of the arts . I wouldn’t change a thing about this school. We have a great campus , we could walk to OU southern and take college credits, or we have a lot of opportunities that others school may have. This school has the best spirit I’ve seen from any other school ,even though I might be a little biased. One more thing before I go. GO FIGHTING TIGERS!!!!
Went to Ironton all 4 years of high school and loved it! I think they should have had more of a quantity when it came to sports and coaches did not show favoritism. Made a lot of friends, but would not live it over. Some teaches were great other teachers were average because they just treated teaching like a job and did not care. I think that students should get thrown out of sports if they could not pass a drug test. I believe that teachers and principles showed favoritism just because I did not participate in school sports only because I show horses all of the time and didn't have time for sports.
