    "I go to Irvine High school and I'm going to be a sophmore next year. The school, is outstanding. maybe not as academic las University High, or as high of performing arts as Northwood High, but it is a equal balanced school with a lot of opportunities. The science program is fantastic, being able to take Biology in your Freshman year. Even though there are not as many foriegn languages offered as in other high schools, but the languges at Irvine High can be placed into solid Fourth period, finishing 2 years of foriegn language in actually one year, unlike how other high schools make you actually take it in two years. To tell the truth, I live in the University High School area, however, i chose to go to Irvine High, because i had friends that went there, and I new it would not be as competitive as Uni. I"

    "My daughter attends IHS and loves it! They make it very easy for kids to be involved and the families that are involved with their kids are wonderful and friendly. They do have a program for introducing new Freshman students, my daughter was a peer this year. Parents that are worried about the block scheduling, don't be! My daughter loves it and it has made even the difficult classes easier because she had time to question if she needs to. There are a ton of AP/Honors classes and the counselors are always available to help out. This is the best of the Irvine schools!"

    "IHS is an amazing school and sincerely made my high school experience a wonderful one. The diversity of the school makes everyone friends. Anyone and everyone is accepted. The teachers are so intune with each individual student. They consider their profession their passion and their goals as teacher is to change their students lives for the better. Although some parents may not agree with the block scheduling, (coming from a graduated student) it's so helpful when applying to colleges and having enough time (90 minutes) in the class room. It allows the students to get as much done as possible in the short four yrs they are there. IHS teachers are nothing but caring."

    "This school has the world's greatest teachers. They are interested in the whole student, not just the test score."

    "I cannot recommend Irvine High School under its current leadership (2007). The principal is very involved in fundraising, but frankly she does not belong anywhere near young people. She presents quite an impressive figure publicly, but her private persona leaves much to be desired. I have absolutely no confidence in her. The quality of the academic programs at IHS is unfortunately mediocre. AP programs are characterized principally by the homework burden (which my son has described as 'useless busy work'). Parents' participation is welcome in extracurricular activities, especially sports, and especially when volunteer work is needed. However, if there's a problem, parents' input is not appreciated. There are some really terrific faculty members that make extracurricular activities definitely worthwhile. (The wrestling program is particularly impressive, largely because of the coaches.) If your child is on track to becoming a star athlete, IHS is fine. Otherwise, it's not a great environment for kids."
