    "My freshman and sophomore year of school at IHS was very fun . Junior year was boring and stressful and senior year was also stressful but very eye opening."

    "Throughout my four years of attending Independence, it was filled with amazing and diverse groups of people that offer so much potential to better the school. There are dozens of clubs, school events, and other ways to get involved. In addition, the staff makes sure the students enjoy school to its fullest potential. However, the campus is somewhat dirty due to all of the litter. Students are gradually adding more litter, which creates more work for custodians. Furthermore, the restrooms are not well kept with most of the stalls (in the female restrooms) not functioning properly. On the other hand, I had an amazing time attending Independence."

    "Just like any other high school, you wake up early in the morning, drag your body to school, and just learn for hours upon hours."

    "Things that I liked about Independece was that the teachers really care about the students education they try so hard to have every student succeed and they never leave a student behind. Something I would change is that we should have lockers."

    "Despite many thinking that Independence High School isn't up to par with other nearby high schools in terms of academic rigor, I can definitely say that as a student, it provided me an environment that nurtured growth and allowed me to excel."
