I’ve gone to Ithaca since 2nd grade and mostly, it’s been a pretty wonderful experience. There are some really great teachers at the high school that I believe are really preparing students for college. The English, Science, and Math departments are great and the arts are wonderful too. There are so many opportunities to take art classes and from what I hear, the music classes are fun too. The only thing I would like to see change is to maybe put more funding into the art and music programs instead of all of it going to football.

For a small town, the school is not bad. Overall, academics are good and teachers are involved in pushing students towards college or preparing them for whatever life has in store for them. There are many clubs, activities, and sports for the school's size. With that said, there are many faults in Ithaca’s school system. First and most importantly, the administration has failed to uphold teachers’ contracts resulting in lost steps and pay raises for the teachers. Sports are the main focus at the school. Many athletes get special treatment, especially those on the football team. Dress code issues have shown up in the last few years with violations to females being addressed and not violations to males. The school in general is not very inclusive and is not extremely impressive.
Academics are great, the teachers really try to ready you for college, or whatever your career goal might be. The school is extremely focused on sports, especially football. But they do highly support areas like a debate team and FFA. Overall it is a very good school.
