    "It's a bubble. Great education but not the best place for anyone unpopular. I had a great 4 years. The school holds you to high standards."

    "Because our school is so small it is difficult to offer a wide range of classes because enrollment would be so low. Our core requirements are well taught most of the time. The teachers are experienced and are knowledgeable."

    "The social atmosphere is quite lax at our school. The more popular people tend to be quite intelligent and those that do not try in school are looked down on. Students get involved in sports and activities a great deal. There is very little diversity at our school, but those that are of different races are not ridiculed. I think students look up to them kind of."

    "Personally, I love the tight-knit atmosphere that Independence schools have to offer. There is a great deal of trust between everyone due to the fact that our district if so small. The clubs our school has to offer our great. I would definitely choose Independence again. The experience at this school is unlike any other."

    "It is difficult to complete this survey accurately because I have had many different teachers who taught using a wide range of styles. Some were amazing and exhibit all the great qualities a teacher should. Some were not effective in their teaching styles and did do their best to make sure the class understood what they were teaching. Overall, I would have to say the bulk of my teachers demonstrated effective teaching styles and had prominently sage characteristics. However, I do not thing the teachers use the technology available in the building effectively. Other than projecting something to the front of the room, there is very little technology use in the school. Mind you, we have chromebooks, iPads, SmartBoards, Elmo projectors, and basically every Apple computer issued. (Students use this tools effectively; they are not used in the classroom.)"
