Island Trees High School Reviews
Most teachers are the very least knowledgeable in their subject, but some have trouble conveying the lesson to students. There are attitudes to students either fall into one of three categories: would do anything for, are indifferent for, can't stand children. I've had outstanding teachers that have helped in personal lives and genuinely take interest in their development. The students themselves are a diverse group with many different personalities and types. We're a pretty well behaved school with very few really conflicts. Some kids that are on the rougher side cause trouble every so often, but they are outliers for the most part.
Island Trees is a good public school with teachers dedicated to making a difference in the educational experience of the students who attend it. Although the staff is motivated to teach the next generation of citizens, often times their impact is limited to an increasingly tightened budget. Certain sports and clubs are also favored by the administrators, leading to a disparity in the dispersion of the funds that are already low to begin with. Nevertheless, as long as a student went in prepared to learn as much as possible, they would prosper enough to make it to a good college. Especially due to the wide array of extracurriculars available, a student's resume had the potential to be impressive upon completion of four years at this institution.
I've enjoyed my time here, much more than previous schools (i've moved around quite a bit.) The teachers are what makes IT so special--99% of them are entirely committed, amazing teachers. It makes learning much more enjoyable. There's a few bad eggs, obviously...but not enough to stain the lot.
