I have days where I love school and some where I just wanna leave. It has it's perks. There are many clubs to join. A bad thing, our teachers don't like to stay. I believe that in the past four years, we have had 7 different math teachers. Although, the English teachers are amazing. Our science department is also well. I believe our band and choir are most of the popular classes aswell

I liked that with all the diversity, you were allowed to be yourself. No one judged you for all the weird or strange things you did. Sure, you have the average groups you would see in high school, but they are not as tight-knit. It's almost like a family being at Iroquois West.
What I like about Iroquois West High School is that it is such a small school, that everyone kind of feels like family. You can really talk and get to know the teachers also. They truly do want to help you and teach you.
