While the school is very safe and offers the basic eduaction necessities I see many problems. Inconisitency in the disciplinary system and a lack on some teachers behalf for actually teaching. The school does however have their gems such as Nik Mower Jim Goode Lisa Terry Bethany Daniels Larry Stewart and just a few others. I also believe that the school could use more funding since there aren't enough textbooks or classrooms to go around.
Parents are welcome to become involved in all aspects of this school. Sports programs are fair to all.
IMS has great teachers that make learning fun for the kids. My child and my nieces all love the school. IMS is a very well rounded and well structured school. I wouldn't want my child attending any other school. IMS is a cut above the rest.
Independence High School is in my opinion one of the best schools in raleigh county. I am a current student Independence and I love it. The teachers are friendly the academics are awesome and I think that it's the best school for anyone to be in. There is harly any racism and most of the people there get along.
