While there are some excellent and even outstanding programs, further advancing the capabilities of a student to unimaginable heights, there still remains some social issues that Irving High School has not proved to be successful in remediating. An example of such is the freedom to express political ideologies without harassment and cyber-bullying, along with the rampant mismanagement of students which lead to the typical series of "fights" and many other students being picked on as a result of bullying. All in all, while a genuinely stable school in terms of academic performance throughout Texas considering the high number of ethnic minorities that attend this school, there are still several aspects of the school that is left untouched for the worst.

Irving High School is an amazing school! The teachers, and administration are always caring for the future of the students. What's even better is thee soccer team! Never seen a team work so hard as they do! Coach Danford, Werley, Coronado and Rivera have done an amazing job with the Soccer Organization.
As a freshman in high school, I have yet to discover the complete high school experience. Although, as I am filled with excitement knowing that it’s just the beginning, I would like to point out how despite it being my first year, I was greeted by the fellow upperclassmen and felt very accepted. Being a freshman on varsity for soccer and volleyball became the most mentally stressful and challenging experience because It feels like walking on a path without any direction. However, my coaches and the meaningful bonds I’ve created with my teammates are assisting and guiding me through the wisest path to my future. Despite sports, I have seen more than enough fights break out in the halls. I understand that conflict breaking out in the middle of instruction isn’t an odd encounter due to the lack of discipline provided by the school. I believe that my school, Irving high school, should enact stricter rules when it comes to fights and conflict .
