Itasca High School Reviews
I loved my time at Itasca High School. The teachers, administrators, and faculty members are all ready and willing to help any student that asks.
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.
Some teachers are great and some really care about the students but all that is really cared is the athletics program which is over funded. They don't preform that well year to year but always get more funding. Though it is great they have their own chapter of the National Honor Society and provide lots of help for students going into college as well as providing other post-high school options.
Overall the academics of Itasca High are very well, with many oppurtunities for students and relationships between students. Although I would like to see a change in the staff, very biased and not open to new comers or unique people.
Overall, Itasca High School is good. There is not a lot of diversity. Math is one of the subjects I haven't been college ready.
I task a high school gave me a very good education with highly qualified teachers that taught me very valuable information I've used my whole life.
my experience in Itasca has been a fantastic time of my life. i have been here since i was a little kid. i learned that the district cares about your education and would do anything to help you learn. they help you understand anything. While, Itasca does have some flaws it is also has a good education system. the flaws they have definatly does not out weigh the good in the district. the district is the most caring about the students. they look out for the student and ask how they are doing or if there day is going good. they see if you are paying attention and doing there work. they have some really good punishments and it is really effective. the students learn when they get punished or they will have a worse punishment. the students are respectful and would help anyone who needs it.
I like how family-like the school is and how respectful the staff is but there does need to be more college readiness from my past experience when I graduated.
Due to the size of the school it is very easy to get help if needed from one of the teachers. Additionally, the school has a variety of subjects offered and even offers dual credit courses which allowed me to get college credit while in high school.
We have band during school and athletics I wish there were more clubs like sewing and financial planning to participate in or future business leaders something along that line
There is no fear of bullying amongst student body
My teachers at my school have all been wonderful except for a select few. For the most part each and everyone of them have a unique approach to teaching and have shown genuine interest and concern in what happens amongst the student body, over all they are wonderful people.
There are new organizations or clubs every year, Fellowship of Christian Athletes is one of the newest and has brought the student body closer together.
The are the few teachers who seemed to care and encouraged us to do are absolute best.
The teachers are on their phone a lot and don't really teach about the subject they are supposed to.
They are really good teachers.
