Ironwood High School Reviews
I like the student body of Ironwood High School, who although a majority of may be going through many challenges and tests, can still work to improve and advance.
Average high school but needs a lot of work still. Did not really prepare me for college so teachers need to be replaced and units need to be more college based.
I loved going to Ironwood. It is a very friendly environment and very diverse. The teachers are almost always available when you need help.
This school does a really good job at supporting and encouraging students to try classes and new things to enjoy the full high school experience . The school's faculty are great and have done their best to help in school . The campus is beautiful and the majority of the time clean as well. I have no complains about the rules that students need to follow, we are treated fairly and with care.
Ironwood High School is a very supportive school. It isn't very clique-y, which is nice. Most teachers care about there students a lot and it shows in their work. There are many sports (but most don't have the best records) and clubs (and most are small). It has the IB program, which few schools in Arizona have. It has a fantastic, albeit rather small arts program. Generally, there seems to be something for everyone at Ironwood.
Ironwood High School is a good school. I participated in cheerleading and marching band as sports. The directors and coaches are very nice and helpful. They take pride in their work and students. For the most part, the teachers are the same way.
I loved how some of my teachers and coaches went above and beyond to help me when I struggled. I would not have passed if it was not for their support
The IB program at Ironwood is excellent. The regular classes are not great. The security is not the best and often create unnecessary problems. Also, many of the students are rude.
This school is filled with the best teachers that know how to connect with their students and teach in a way that not only engages the students, but excites them. I would rather call the teachers story tellers; they understand how to relate to the younger generation. This school also did an amazing job preparing me for college and what to expect in college work and general academics. The student population was immensely diverse and filled with lovable people that would drop whatever they are doing just to help out a fellow student with nearly anything. I loved my experiences at this high school, and these are memories I am never going to be able to forget.
I loved that Ironwood High School strives for excellence in all they do. I had wonderful teachers who really cared about the students and always made class fun! Mrs. Robb is the best biology teacher I ever had. She is very energetic and is willing to help students succeed. Mr. Mangan was a great English teacher who really helps you understand poetry. Mr. Flanagan made history come alive and helped us to learn how to apply what’s going on now to events that happened before. I had a great high school experience at Ironwood.
Ironwood high school is an amazing school. The IB and AP programs provides rigorous academic programs for students to excel in. Excellent teachers that will challenge your way of thinking.
Ironwood was a high school that made education fun and provided courses that could possibly turn into future career goals. For example, I loved to cook and bake and took several culinary courses throughout my high school career. While that wasn’t the career I chose to pursue, I certainly felt I learned everyday skills and potential professional skills when working in a kitchen.
Ironwood High School has some of the best teaching staff available. English and History teachers take extra care to engage their students and aide them with their success. It's hard to find an apathetic teacher here.
My experience at Ironwood was just like any other high school kids experience. Due to the IB (International Baccalaureate) program at Ironwood, it attracted many highly intellectual individuals who I think, increased the potential of the school overall making it an ideal environment to learn.
If you're an IB student, Ironwood will be an incredible experience for you. The teachers are all extremely invested in the students and engrossed in helping you get better. Sometimes that comes in the form of tough love, but you'll certainly appreciate by the time it's over. From the start to the end of the IB program you will go from losing your mind writing a paragraph in an evening to being able to crank out full essays in hours. It is a fantastic program I cannot recommend enough.
I attended high school at Ironwood Ridge. I was a cheerleader and a part of student council; however, I never really felt like a part of the school. I came from the Marana district and I constantly felt left out because of it. I eventually quit cheer leading and student council because I felt bullied in both of those clubs. When it comes to diversity, Ironwood Ridge does not seem to care. Almost everyone there is white, and being different seems frowned upon. I do think that their academics are stellar, however. I felt much more prepared for college than if I had attended Marana High school.
I really appreciated the dedication of all my teachers. I had a good learning experience here. However, the buildings are in bad condition. There are not enough textbooks or computers. The internet is bad. The dress code and phone policies are very strict, to the point where they inhibit a student's ability to constructively learn.
The teachers really cared about each and every students success. The helped us thrive to become better students and adults. The classes helped prepare us for college and everyday living. The school had clubs and sports that allowed every student to be a part of. The atmosphere is wonderful and full of energy.
Ironwood High School has a dedicated staff and wonderful academics, especially in regards to the IB, AP, and Honors program. Teachers and counselors often directly involve themselves in the success of the students. However, the arts are severely underfunded and are not given the attention that they require to be very successful. The school also suffers from out-dated resources and breaking facilities, due to budget cuts. Often, lockers do not work, textbooks fall apart, and students are left without proper district provided resources for their classes.
Ironwood High School has showed me a lot on how student have so many options for classes, the teachers are amazing and help the students out a lot.
