Irrigon Junior/Senior High School Reviews

While I enjoyed the strong Band program, many other areas are lacking. More funding goes to the sports programs than any other. While I am fine with sports programs receiving a lot of funding, I found myself gravitating to more Arts programs, which are lacking. We have a Drama Club, but we have no auditorium. All we have is a small stage in the cafeteria with limited storage space. We primarily have to fundraise all of our money if we want to do much of anything. There is a drive at the school to lots of extra-curriculars and college-level classes, but we don't exactly get a wide range of choices. A lot of it does come down to be a small school in a small area, however.

Irrigon is a small town high school, which is okay, but it has a few issues. The administration drives off new teachers. One example that is well known throughout the school is Spanish. In two years, we had five different teachers, for one subject. The teachers there don't really care what students do so long as they aren't too loud and they can teach the few that actually pay attention in class. Even with all of those down sides, the athletics that are provided aren't bad. We don't have any nice facilities and we often don't keep coaches very long, the students that participate in them help the coaches and the new comers to their sports and have run an entire practice, more than once. This allows them to help others around them get better.
Many teachers at this school are high quality, meaning that they know what they are talking about, they are able to reach the students and communicate the lessons clearly, and they take the time to help students that struggle. There are some teachers that do not share these qualities. These teachers may have the knowledge for what they are teaching but complicate the lessons or lectures so much that students lose interest or have trouble keeping up. These teachers also make little to no effort to help students that are struggling, and if they do happen to offer their assistance, it isn't much help because they continue to complicate things.
