I went to school at IRCHS all four years of high school. Absolutely incredible, I was very involved in Leadership Council, National Honor Society, and Key Club. They offer 3 main tracks for students; Core, Golf, and VAPA. Core: simply focus on academics. Golf: they have professionals come in and train the students for free; they also have Golf course management courses where they train students in the course management vocation. VAPA: Visual and Performing Arts, they have choir, 2D art, sculpture, jewelry design, pottery, jazz ensemble, and every other type of instrument, dance, and art class you can think of. It is a friendly fun environment.
