Irvington High School Reviews

609 reviews
All Categories
Irvington has three benchmark projects throughout the four years of high school (every year except for junior year), one of which resembles a college thesis. It provides decent academic opportunities, but could be improved. Recent changes in the academic programs have caused a lot of conflicts among teachers and students. Irvington has a lot of resources available to students, however, they are not always well publicized. Some examples are an athletic trainer for students who participate in sports, four counselors, and a psychiatrist. A lot of clubs are very repetitive and similar, but a stricter policy is being implemented to ensure that these problems are addressed.

I enjoyed the fact that the school was so diverse, not just ethnically but also in terms of experience. The system of "families" at our school which ensure that everyone has classes with people who have similar interests means that each persons experience in the school is unique. I disliked the "benchmark projects" they ran every year because they seemed forced. The school is also somewhat big which is good because you meet more people but bad because teachers/counselors dont really know you that well. The academic rigor is also very high which potentially creates stress for a lot of my peers. However, most teachers are knowledgeable and teach well. Due to the general area, parents are also far too involved for my taste in both academoc and social lives.
There are some aspects of Irvington that are really great: class selection, the arts program, and most teachers. However, Irvington also has a toxic environment where students care more about academics than academic honesty or the well-fare of their peers. Many students place their grades above their mental health; this mindset is greatly influenced by peer pressure and the unhealthy culture of taking courses just to tally up more AP and honors classes. All in all, Irvington is a decent school if you want to get a good education, but be prepared for the stress that may follow.
