Ithaca High School Reviews
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.
Ithaca High School is the best high school experience any kid could ask for. It might not have the most funding in the world but with what it is given, the school does a lot. Ithaca has some of the best athletic and academic programs, even though it recently had to start cutting a few Advance Placement courses due to budget issues the school continues to proves itself time and time again with its scores in the math, english, and social studies departments. Not only do the teachers prepare the students for college well, they also prepare them for the reality of life. The school is small, like really small and does need some maintenance but the environment really allows for one on one learning. The football program is amazing as well as the bowling, cross country, and track programs. Ithaca is the school of champions, despite all of the hardships it faces the students and faculty members always make the best of the situations given to them.
I had a decent high school career at Ithaca High School, however, the small-town feeling was overbearing towards my senior year. I was able to make a variety of friends with different people, and that helped shape who I am today while in college. However, only having 88 people in your graduating class meant that everyone knew everything about everyone, and that was an annoying experience to endure.
