Irvington High School Reviews

My experience at Irvington High School was decent, while as a whole it could be vastly improved since many of my friends and classmates had worse experiences. Some teachers and staff are wonderful and more cooperative, while others are more difficult to work with and have more challenging assignments. One exception to this is the janitorial staff, who are all friendly and respectful to all students. The academics in general are great, especially how they are geared toward college success, while they can be difficult at times. One major critique are a few key projects that span the entire year that can be difficult. These projects often change in terms of requirements, and are challenging for students in personal and family situations. As far as the environment is concerned, sports aren't taken as serious, there is very little true school spirit, and parent involvement is at a minimum for events and activities that aren't mandatory for their child's academic success.

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.
Irvington High school was a great environment that prepared me well for college and an independent life. Throughout the 4 years there, 3 of my years were assigned benchmark projects where we did extensive research, community service, and came up with solutions to issues in local and global perspectives. Not only did these projects teach me how to properly do research and write papers, it also gave me the ability of community outreach, the skill of team cooperation, and the knowledge of proper presentation. There were also a number of teachers who found it incredibly helpful to us students to veer off the main curriculum in order to teach us amazing life lessons. From how to change a tire to when to show up to pick a person up for a date to how to tie a tie, I believe what makes Irvington unique is the teachers who genuinely care for each and every one of the student that pass through their care.
