My experience at Irvington High School was not particularly enjoyable, but I believe this was more due to the fact that high school is a stressful time and I was going through it during a pandemic, not because the school itself was bad. The level of education is really high, and you definitely learn at a private school level in some classes. The teachers vary greatly - some are truly passionate and brilliant (esp. in the arts, history, and classics department) and others don't seem to care about their students and are ill informed in their own curriculum (math and modern languages!). The student culture is very competitive and definitely develops somewhat of an hierarchy around wealth, but is overall welcoming and humorous. Overall, it's not a bad high school choice!

As a student of Irvington High School, I can tell you that my experience there will aide me in being college ready. Compared to other schools, the academics are much more engaging and useful to the students, and you can tell that each teacher actually cares about how each student is retaining the information, rather than only caring about following a curriculum. However, there seems to be a rather scummy division between special ed students and regular students, as all of the special ed students have to take their classes downstairs, and aren't privy to a good deal of the same privileges as regular students (i.e. class trips).
Teachers act entitled and frequently address their needs first before the students. Attitude does not show a message of we want the student to succeed but what are the requirements to get this over with. The good teachers keep their heads’ down.....avoid admin. The school is insulated and parents drink the kool-aid to tell themselves all is well. But college freshman say otherwise and feel a sense of big picture missed at Irvington.
