The things I like most about my school is the extra curricular classes and activities that go on at my school. The athletic program has got great coaches and I enjoy playing basketball and powerlifting. There are so many opportunities you can have at this school. The
educational part of this school is good, the teachers assign lots of projects. Throughout the whole school from elementary to middle school to high school you have great staff members and help with your work anytime you need it. You will also make great friendships here at Itasca high.

Teachers are too worried about following curriculum instead of actually teaching and equipping students for the rest of their lives. The Administration is too focused on gaining money instead of treating students fairly, which means attendance policies are way too strict and not forgiving to the students. Itasca doesn't have enough money to efficiently provide resources for their classes. My best experience with Itasca has been its band program, Itasca has a great band that teaches kids good work ethic and good character. Regarding safety, Itasca does not implement any special safety measures in order to protect their students, the most we do is fire drills. There is no security around our school, and multiple doors are left unlocked and unguarded throughout the day, easily letting anyone walk through those doors. I do not recommend Itasca High School to anyone.
I have been with Itasca Independent School District since Pre-Kindergarten. Itasca Independent School District has been amazing to me, I personally have never had any issues with the school. Most of the staff treats the students like family. Although like any other school you do run into some minor bumps in the road.
