Ironwood Ridge High School Reviews
IRHS has good teachers, but you should get advice from upperclassmen on what teachers or classes not to take.
The campus was gated and big. It had some great teachers. I attended the school before the common core act went through, so it was better than it is now.
I had an overall good experience at ironwood ridge in the past year, I have learned and grown more than I had in previous schools. There are lots of resources to help you achieve and the teachers are hands on. The lunch food is actually kinda good and there is a wide variety of food to eat. However passing periods between classes can sometimes not be enough when you have to go from the auditorium to some of the English classes, completely across campus from each other. Overall a good experience.
The campus is very safe and the school has many great teachers. The education is above average, but no excellent. Some classes offer high standards of education but some do not. The sports programs within the school are excellent.
It offers great opportunities for those who choose to take advantage of it! There are many dedicated teachers there to help you succeed.
The student body is laid back and friendly. The teachers for the AP program and advanced level classes do a great job.
The school is overall fine, but nothing special. There are a lot of good teachers but very little school spirit.
Ironwood Ridge is a good school that helps you grow into the person your going to be by giving you the tools to be successful. The material is hard but with the help of nice staff, nothing is impossible.
I loved this school. Very great student activities. The teachers are amazing. The athletics are competitive and inclusive.
Science, English and arts departments are the strongest, but the teachers in the math, languages and history aren’t the best. The campus is very big and perfect for the size of the school and the administrators are very strict and always want the best for their student.
Ironwood Ridge High School offers an average high school experience. There are probably better options to send your child to, but if you live in the area and are looking at public schools, they're all pretty average with their small differences that, depending on what you're interested in, can make a big difference. If you're interested in art or sports, you'll love Ironwood. The art teachers do phenomenal work with their small budget, and every teacher is accommodating if you do sports. Other than that, it's just like every other poor school in a state that ranks 48/50 in education; it more or less sucks and is overrun with drug issues. But really, you'll find that at any high school in the area. That's just Arizona's average high school.
I liked that the majority of the students were kids I had known since elementary school, the teachers were very good and wanted to see students succeed. I didn’t like that there was small cliques of people that made it difficult for other students to feel like they fit in.
This school is like other high schools. The academics are average and the people are nice. It isn't the best school out there but it also is not the worst.
Ironwood Ridge is a high performing high school with tons of opportunities for its' students to succeed and prepare for college.
At Ironwood, you walk through the giant teal colored gates and are instantly welcomed by the principal and assistant principal. The staff and teacher go out of their way to make sure that they get to know you and find out your goals for college and life.
I enjoy many of the teachers, they really are very passionate about their students’ education. The sports programs in the school are very intense but produce excellent athletes. There is not much school spirit within the school, but Student Government is trying to encourage more spirit. I have enjoyed the years I have spent at the school, and am grateful for all of the memories made.
Ironwood Ridge High School is a very athletically inclined school with moderate fine arts programs and academics. The administration does their best to provide care and order in the school and communicates very well with parents and students. Resources are used appropriately and fairly. The teachers are mixed with both amazing and average educators. There is a constant security presence and drills are conducted as required. The community is great and beneficial to learning.
