Irvington High School has been great academically and in terms of opportunities to volunteer, start and participate in clubs/sports, and focus on education.
Irvington High School is a small school, one with a very rooted background. The teachers care about their students and make themselves available to help them at every turn, which should not be taken for granted. Irvington High School is a community, it is supportive, and provides a great education.
there were many good teachers and no diversity. I wish there were more people who went to the school as it was also very small. However, it was quite academically challenging and offered many honors courses. they also have a lot of electives which is nice.

I started Irvington in 10th grade and the switch h from private to public school was great. The kids have been with each other since kindergarten to they open up to so you make friends easily. The teachers are understanding and work with you to make sure all your work is in.
great variety of classes except for foreign language. should be more languages offered. AP classes are very intense but teachers are helpful and supportive.
While there are a decent number of clubs there could certainly be more (although we're small school). It would be great to have a little more teacher involvement.
Most teachers are great. They are accessible and dedicated. They will often meet outside of regular school hours. Grading is inconsistent but mostly fair across all departments. Some teachers are incredibly passionate and that translates to happy, engaged students.
very safe, bullying is not tolerated. police are always close by.
teachers are caring and helpful. The principal and new assistant principal are superb. They are passionate and supportive and treat everyone with respect. Student body is mostly great kids, very involved and non-judgemental.

Sadly our athletic fields are horrible and are awaiting approval process to begin replacing them.

Foreign language is limited to French and Spanish. It would be great to have more- Italian, Japanese, Chinese etc to be more competitive with some other elite high schools.
There are numerous clubs and they do get support, but they don't get as much student support as they should.
There are wonderful teachers at Irvington, as well as so-so teachers. Some are very enthusiastic and can teach to a range of abilities, but others teach only to the middle. Grading is consistent and fair.
There are numerous anti-bullying campaigns and action is taken quickly.
Students are a tight-knit group, many having been together since kindergarten. Many teachers have a great relationship with students.
Really it's ok and that's it.
The school community is really small and tight. Had a har time fitting in and making friends as a transfer student.
Some does care about their students' learning, but some does not at all.
The school is unique because of the past and current principals who had a los of sense of community and were/are very enthusiastic. Principals are concerned, teachers are for the most part concerned and knowledgeable.

Guidance counselors are hard to communicate with by email.

Chorale and orchestras are the main reason I chose this school, besides the excellent core academics.

The trips the school organize are wonderful. I would choose this school again.

I have had a good experience academically because I respect my teachers and do my best always. One thing that may be tempting is getting involved in social drama, but avoiding it has gotten me very far. This school is unique because there is a strong sense of community. I would choose this school again if I could do it all over because I have grown as an individual and have had amazing teachers.
The school district is very top heavy. There are a handful of teachers that really care. The college process is lacking.
never feel unsafe, and people are healthy
