    Health & Safety: Within my first month of attending ICHS there was a tornado watch, in which we spent half of the day in the hallway. After that there was a school shooting scare. I did not feel scared because the school had police agencies from every surrounding county guarding the school. With all of this excitement I was a little nervous, but I never felt unsafe. ICHS has been the safest school I have ever attended, even with the scares.

    Extracurriculars: At ICHS there are tons of clubs and organizations to get involved in. Most of our clubs are very well known within the state of Georgia, and also the country. FFA is probably the most popular club. While I am not in FFA I do know they are very well known for their excellence in agriculture. FCCLA is also a very popular and well known club. TSA, a club I am actually a part of, is also a popular club. The diversity in the club is great. We have kids that you would expect to be in the club, meaning the honors class kids, but also people that are mostly ag oriented are in the club. Club experiences at ICHS are the best.

    Overall Experience: Irwin County High School excels at not only academics, but also sports. In the last two years our football team has made it to the state championship and our girl's tennis team has made it to state and actually won last year. It is exciting to see so many fellow students do well on and off the field. The experiences I have had at Irwin County High School have definitely been the most exciting! If I had to chance to start over I would want to go to ICHS all throughout my primary schooling.

    Teachers: I have been to four different school systems throughout my primary schooling. The teachers at Irwin County High School are by far the most supportive. The teachers care about my education and want me to succeed. I have had the best experience with teachers at this school and appreciate all they do to help my fellow class mates and me.
