I graduated from IHS in 2010. When I left the school was awesome, especially after transferring over from another school that wasn't so great. My little sister continued to go to this school after I had already graduated and it appears the quality of the students has gone down quite a bit. I also remember doing night courses for ARC here at IHS and seeing the boys bathrooms totally destroyed, doors off the hinges, toilets broken, and trash everywhere. This was not the case when I was actually attending the school. I am not sure how the school is now, but hopefully it has improved from what I've heard and seen in the past years.

I am currently going to Inderkum and I love it so much. Yeah there is some issues with the kids here and there and there are some things going on there that the staff is getting their hands on. The teachers are really cool and really want to help us and the principal is fun and always positive. I would recomend this school its amazing and fun...
