Irwin County High School was a great school to go to. Even though many days I did not have the motivation to go, I got myself up and headed to school. I studied hard and attended class everyday. I did this because I knew how important education is for myself. Coming from a small town, the community played a large role with the high school especially when it came to sports. Since the community was so involved with sports, I decided to become involved myself. I was the catcher for the baseball team and I was the tight end for the football team. Overall, my experience with Irwin County High School was fantastic. If I was able to go back and start it all over again I would. However, I am excited for my next chapter of life at college.
I like the staff at the high school. Something I would change would be the way they handle bullying.
Irwin County High School is a very accepting and none judgemental school. The teachers are amazing and will never give up on the students, no matter the hardship. We have had a smooth transition of power in our administration because they are respected.
What I mainly liked about Irwin county is how much the teachers cared and treated you like family. I enjoyed the extra curricular activities but they don’t really have a lot of options. I would like to see a change in how they treat other sports. They make it seem like if you aren’t a cheerleader or a football player that you don’t matter. I would like to see every sport and every activity be treated as one
This school system is one of the best because the faculty always looks out for their students. Irwin county has one of the best football teams in the state of Georgia. The coronavirus has done nothing but brings us closer as a community.
Irwin county was a very friendly school! The teachers and counselors did their best to make sure we were on track and performed to our best abilities! One thing I would like to see changed is the food.
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.
I loved how approachable the teachers were. It truely was like a big family when you were in a classroom.
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.
My experience at Irwin County High School has been great. It is a great school. The teachers and administrative people are very kind and caring. They do everything in they're power to make the students successful.
The Irwin County School system is full of administrators who want to make a difference. The facilities and food are below par, but the academics prepare you really well for college, and MOWR is encouraged at this school.
I love my high school. Everybody knew each other from students to teachers no matter what the age group was. The other class men were great role models and the underclassmen followed and took after.
There is a very obvious division between the ethnicities. It is relatively frowned upon for these group to comingle. This doesn't necessarily cause a problem at the school, although it hinders our cultural awareness.
Very few organizations and clubs at this school receive administrative recognition. The most admired groups are specifically the FBLA and FFA. Most other clubs are not praised, even when they preform well in competitions.
I would not attend Irwin County High School again because, as a student focused on academics, I was not often encouraged or recognized in my accomplishments. This school gives more emphasis on athletics and agriculture than it did on STEM curriculums.
There are very few teachers that are hired at this school that actually take adequate time preparing their plans for the year. Most of the teachers have worked there for too long and have therefore started viewing their teaching positions as a habit with a summer vacation instead of being actively and happily involved in the school environment. Many students, especially and specifically the students that are advanced, are given ineffective teachers rather than the appropriate teachers for their intelligence. Those teachers tend to go to the students that don't want to be attending school at all.
Irwin County High School is a very small school. I believe all of the teachers and administrators care about are grades and want each and every one of us to succeed in all that we do.
