Irwin County High School Reviews
My overall experience with Irwin County was phenomenal! The school is in a small town by the name of Ocilla. Irwin teachers make sure that their students are in top shape when it comes to academics. The teachers prepare students for subjects in other grade levels and more. My favorite supporter throughout the school was the principal. Coach Billingsley was the best principal at Irwin County High School. He knew every student's name, and grade and made sure the student was in good shape mentally and spiritually. He cares for the students safety as if we were his own children. Coach B, and every faculty member made sure that students were well rounded and ready for adulthood (college, jobs, etc). The sports and clubs have a great fan base and supporters. Coaches and Band Directors made sure that students were on top on their grades BEFORE getting on any fields or mats whatsoever. Irwin County is a home, and I highly recommend anyone interested in Irwin County High School to attend.
There is very little bullying here and the school is very diverse. Other than a few rotten eggs, the teachers are great and you can tell that they want to teach. My main complaint is that the schedules are very messed up and makes life more stressful and confusing for parents and students. In 9th grade you get one type on schedule, then in tenth a different type, and finally in 11th you get full block scheduling. I do not know why safety and violence are a C- because the school is pretty safe other than like one fight a year that is more severe. The fights are the underclassmen most of the time. A bad thing is that we do not get sex ed. till 12th grade and a lot of girls get pregnant by 11th. If I could I would rate the school a 3 1/2, but since I do think the school is above average I must say 4.
Here at Irwin county, I was treated like family. My favorite thing about the school was the guidance counselors. They are there for you no matter what and they answer all of your questions. I couldn't have asked for better counselors. One thing I would like to see change is the lunch.
