    "My school is awesome because when you don't understand or misunderstand something you could always asks teachers to assistance you to became understanding the problems, and you will know that once you get it would be a piece of a cake of any subjects."

    "Independence is a great school. My son graduated in 2010 and is an UCSD sophomore. Most of his friends got in UC. Actually, no matter which school you attend, if you study hard dream will come true."

    "I graduated from IHS. Now I'm going to San Jose State University for Engineering (B.S.). This high school has a large campus and the second biggest campus of high school in USA. Teachers are really friendly and good security with police on campus."

    "I am a graduating this year from Indepedence and am going to UCSD this fall. I have to disagree many of the reviews. Independence does not have lower academic standards and if the student feels that the classes are not challenging enough, there are classes called 'AP' classes. As for the rumors about the school being violent and agressive, every school has bad students; I have seen two fights this year, and both were broken up almost immediately by security. independence simply has a higher population, and with this all of our activities are done on a much larger scale than other schools. However, the budget cuts have hit the school extremely hard this year and many teachers and advisors are being cut. The next few years will be hard for many students and teachers in the East Side Union High School District."
