Irvington isn’t the best but it’s not the worst. In fact, Irvington is the kind of school that has a somewhat “bad” reputation but actually is a really good schools. It’s all really based on who the student is. As long as you respect your peers and teachers, they will stand for you and watch out for you. Irvington in a way teaches students how to be better people, which is great because not many high schools teach students life lessons like Irvington, or how to handle certain situations regarding disrespectful students/teachers. It’s the kind of school that you have to experience it yourself to actually understand.

What I like about Irvington High school is that they have great teachers, they have an army Junior ROTC program that is ranked honor unit with distinction. They also offer a wide range of community related activities. However, Irvington high school is notorious for fights. Students getting beat up severally. the bathrooms is an eyesore, school is dirty and students rarely follows the rules. The school is very low when it comes to academics and only few care about education.
I am at present a Junior at Irvington School. I trust that the school does not carry out their activity with regards to keeping students out of unfortunate situations. I say this because with a specific end goal to keep somebody intrigued and out of trouble, you need to have a class or two that interests them firmly and influences them to want to come to class. Put resources and invest into what these students love to do and I guarantee that there won't be an upset.

Have these students learning how to fix cars, have these students learn how to produce music properly instead of shooting dice in the stairwells.
