On Teachers: The teachers here are very qualified to teach the courses they are given to teach. A great majority have a special niche for keeping students interested but at least i can say that every teacher offers the opportunity to give ech student extra help. Even P.E. teachers offer after school help.

On Extracurriculars: At my high school, there are a wide range of extracurricular activities from marching band to chess club that allow student to have fun and participate. All activities are supported by the faculty and administration. We even have the right to get a petition to form a club if there isn't one at our school.

On Overall Experience: I have been able to deal with all types of people and can use the knowledge I have learned from that in my adult life. The best part about Indian River to me is how different everyone is and it can be a refreshing thing to experience new rings and new people.

On Academics: The curriculum at Indian River is diverse and shows attention to detail with the work load emphasizing student absorbent towards the information given. Teachers usually decide weather the or not the class is popular but math and history classes have been the most popular. Scheduling is very laid back. Students also have the opportunity to change classes if a better opportunity approaches.

On Health & Safety: Every school has its faults. This school is very strict when it comes to following rules, but sometimes the security can be very neglectful and overlook may things.
