My experience at Irvin High School was successful, because high school teaches you how to become your real self it teaches you how to become someone your not and to grow and be a bigger person than you would ever thought you would be. I loved Irvin High school all four years of my attendance, great people, teachers, and staff there was always someone there for you no matter what was happening. Irvin really made me think of who I really was and how much better of a person you could be within minuets of walking down the halls. It gave me freedom learning to be more social, and making me think of the right choices. If I could ever change anything at Irvin I would convince the students to become more social and to join more activities than just sit there and be shy. I am glad that I attended Irvin it got me to the real world and now is the time to shine.

Irvin High School isn't really known for being the best school in the North East, its pretty much the school where you have to watch yourself or something might happen. There isn't really any school spirit or involvement by the school community. Our sports aren't the best put they put in their all for every game they have. I'd like to see more involvement and spirit around the school so we can come together as a school family, it would make my high school experience a lot better.
I absolutely love Irvin! The people are great and you can really feel a family atmosphere wherever you go around campus. The only thing I would change would be the outdated campus, but other than that, I would consider Irvin my second home.
