Really enjoyed my time at Irvin. Had no complaints over all, not a bad school as it’s put out to be.
Irvin High School was OK. I spent my junior/senior years there. It is your average public high school.
A great-looking school, most of the buildings are new. Because of this, students are able to engage in an area that is full of resources. The resources include a large library, upgraded technology, and extremely clean condition. We have a S.T.E.M program available to all students who want a head start to universities.
Irvin is a school perpetually trying to reinvent itself. The teachers are often reorganized to meet different goals and they almost always fall short of sustaining any program with substance. I was part of the inaugural Rocket New Tech class and I can genuinely say that I’ve seen the cohorts that followed crumble down to a group of teachers and students that lack any vision for the future of the magnet program. I currently attend a fairly competitive college and while I do feel adequately prepared, I know that the majority of my Irvin peers would not fair as well. If you’re a parent, educator or student considering Irvin make sure that you have a plan for what you want from the school itself, come with a vision and it can certainly be worth your time. I will also note that the school does do a good job of preparing people for the use of soft skills, graphic design, and public speaking. I also highly recommend taking courses in the humanities at Irvin as those teachers do care.
I would like to see a change in our New Tech program, and the way that we interact with others. I believe our strive should be to have more community involvement and to welcome in students to not only represent us but to get them to success. As New Tech started it was wonderful now it’s simply falling a bit because they removed seniors and juniors from berly even having a New Tech class, we should consider making a change. Overall I believe we’re making it better every year with our rankings in grades and sports.
Decent school, befuddling and frustrating occasionally. Most staff are helpful and nice, teachers tend to either be well-spoken and caring or in a phase where classes become extremely minimalistic with no challenge. Social atmosphere is highly individualistic.
it is a great school with a good community, teachers are the best thing of irvin, they take their time to help you in all academic stuff and in our personal stuff
Irvin High School has helped me grow and has taught me how to be a part of my community. Everyone, there is nice and has helped me grow in some way. Many of my teachers want to see their students be themself and express themselves with projects or interactions between one and one. Irvin High pays close attention to all of its students as they grow and learn how to take initiative towards their own life. My school is currently in construction and is being remodeled for the sake of the students, so they could have a better place to learn and feel more comfortable. My school might not be the best looking and many people think it is low-classed but many of the people there prove those statements wrong. There isn't a lot of things that I would change about my school because I mean we all have had that one high school teacher that we don't like and many students make life at high school more complicated than what it is.
Irvin High School provides many opportunities for students, especially Rocket New Tech, which is a program that is based on project based learning and collaboration. This helps with communication and better prepares students for the future, I would highly recommend Rocket New Tech to any student.
Irvin High school full of opportunities for the students that push themselves. Its academic programs are meant to help a student grow not only as scholar, but as a person as well.
I am currently a high school senior enrolled in the New Tech Program that Irvin offers and I will be part of the first graduating class with this program. It is amazing to be able to have the opportunity to start a program and watch it expand to what it has over the course of four years.
Attending this school for 4 years definitely created some very vivid and fond memories for me. However, the dedication is slightly off. Many students don't see the bright future they have ahead off them, they will that their time at Irvin High School will last forever and won't be able to succeed. However, they don't know that they will be able to thrive. I believe all the hard work our educators alone do is capable enough to impact many students, either academically or mentally.
Moving to Irvin was probably one of the best schools I was ever able to be enrolled into. Everyone - and I mean everyone - is extremely welcoming of you and extremely helpful. The teachers are amazing at forming a bond with their students and the amount of school spirit there is, is unbeatable.
I would like to say when I transferred to Irvin. I did regret it one bit, I really love the friends I got here, they make me feel like we are one big family.
My experience at Irvin High School, is good. It's been four years already, and it has certainly has been the best years of my life, socially, not so much academically, but it has changed the way I think about things. And I will have some very fond memories of this place once I leave it.
I love Irvin High School, it is full of group collaboration and huge projects. I got to meet new people here and the teachers are amazing!!! The teachers do know how to teach us students.
I loved that it was such a great learning environment. All of the teachers and staff were friendly and professional. Irvin encouraged enriching our community by offering many resources to help us in and outside of school.
