    "A lot of the teachers are collecting a paycheck. The admin is very arrogant and don't help parents or students with a lot of issues. They have political schemes that prevents bad teachers from getting in trouble. Most of the classes are taught with a very liberal point of view. Children without political knowledge will be taught with slated opinions. Recently the admins have begun watching students actions online and punishing them for quoting movies like "Mean Girls" or sharing any negative opinions about the admin. I'm being serious. Seriously consider other schools if looking to enroll in this area."

    "IRHS is a good school but one that is developing a culture of clicks, good old boys and racist. As a parent of a minority student, I am deeply concerned about the lack of diversity and/or multi-cultural programs. Outward acts of mean spiritedness and bullying are becoming a heavy burden and one where the administrators don't seem to want to proactively address."

    "To read the prior review I could perceive my son attends a different HS as our experience holds sharp contrast to this. We have found that high standardized testing scores (PSAT and others) together with high GPA, consistent student/teacher collaboration and diversity in club involvement is a successful combination in bringing college resources to us. Admittedly, it has been my son who has outwardly pursued these achievements and understandably his initiative, or lack thereof, will be the primary factor that makes his goals attainable. We always hope that the bridge between HS and college counseling and resources toward those goals is cohesive, but understand that our role as parents may increase in working through the deficiencies."

    "The only reason I rate this a 2 is because it has some AP's. Other than that, it is one of the worst high schools to have your child go to unless you want him to directly feed into UA or Pima. We have no resources to get your child in to a top University other than his or her own merit. The counselors never help, but pride themselves in becoming "good friends" with all the students to give the illusion of helping. Certain AP classes are taught by the worst teachers who have no clue what they are doing. We spend SO much money on athletics. Athletics does nothing for your child unless he is Lebron James or Ben Roethlisberger. There are seriously NO opportunities for extra curriculars other than these sports that our school prides itself in so much. Clubs are taken as a joke and our NHS chapter is filled with inactive students merely in it for the star on their diploma. Even our top rated students can't get into tough schools. If you want your child to be successful, spend the extra gas and travel time to openly enroll him or her into University High School or BASIS Tucson."
