    "We have a very caring and loving facility. Yes we have our ups and downs in the school but overall it has been a good experience attending this school and receiving an above average education."

    "What makes this school unique is without a doubt the music programs. Larry Annable is a fantastic teacher and choir director and I have learned a lot from him! Mrs. Shelton also knows what she is doing with the band program! The number of students in band have increased each year since she arrived and she genuinely cares for the students! She makes the band a family and teaches many life lessons along with the music skills."

    "Independence High School is a good school, it's better than most schools in Southeast Kansas. We are very educated and fortunate to accept the education that is provided for us."

    "Most teachers do not care for their students outside or inside of class. I have been in multiple classes when a student asked for help and the teacher told them to figure it out and refused to help themselves. I've also have had teachers who didn't care to actually teach but just let the students pass. We have acquired a few new teachers in the past two years who have been really awesome. They know what they are teacher and are willing to help anyone(even kids who are not their students). And are willing to stay after school and help. However the majority of teachers at IHS would not be considered good teachers."
