    "Profanity and sexuality in hallways is a problem at EVERY school, much worse at others even in the area. Diversity is not always racial, difference in opinion and learning levels offers great diversity in the classroom. The school offers spanish and mandarin (two languages). French was cut due to lack of interest. Acceptance was not an issue, and drugs are a problem at EVERY school. Independence is better than most private schools on that issue. As a student who graduated from this school in the summer, I can say that the past comment must've been a one time walkthrough. You can not make an analysis on a school by walking down the hallways once."

    "I was very unhappy with this school. As i walk down the hall t here is a great amount of profanity and sexuality in the hallways. There is a complete lack of diversity. There are not a wide range of classes to choose from, and only one foreign language. This sets your child up for a disadvantage. The kids are not very friendly or accepting and there is a major drug problem in the school, that needs to be addressed, i would not suggest sending your child to this horrible educational enviroment."

    "Independence schools are rated Excellent for completely valid reasons - Excellent people teaching hard working kids with involved and caring parents - THE magic equation for academic success! Considering the districts very small size makes this accomplishment even more amazing. It's therefore REALLY unfortunate that some of the wealthiest people in our small town have chosen to unilaterally undermine our premier educators and adminstrators valiant efforts by leading the charge against the recent levy issues. I find this a sad and pathetic testimony to the selfish and pathetic agendas of a few nut job 'townies' that fancy themselves some kind of 'town bosses' in pursuit of power, some kind of sick prestige as tough financial guys, or just to draw attention to their pathetic selves - regardless of their efforts - we've still got the magic and even their underhanded efforts can't change that."

    "I am a recent graduate of Independence High School, and my only complaint lies in factors that can only be determined by school size. For example, a wider range of clubs, languages, and honors/AP classes would have benefitted my time at IHS greatly. However, because the school is so small these extra options are simply not practical or able to come into existence. Perhaps with the building of the new school and the eagerness of the younger staff, these extra options may soon become a reality. Aside from this, my time at IHS was enjoyable and I feel as though I was provided with an education that has prepared me for my college years."
