    Immokalee High School has improved its school grade and image through its mission of PRIDE which consists of Perseverance Respect Involvement Discipline and Enthusiasm. It would assist us greatly if our media center technology was upgraded for student & teacher use as well as the increase in testing meaning other computers may be slowed down. Moreover the use of student-owned and school technology will assist our students with staying competitive with District schools.

    Immokalee high school is a great school! I have four kids two which have already graduated and have gone on to graduate from FSU! The other two plan to follow in their siblings footsteps. The administration teachers and aides have all been a tremendous help to us as parents. I feel that every parent should be involved with their child's education in any or all levels. We can't just drop them off and expect perfection after 13 years. I Love that our school is united in many things and we really do become one when tragedy strucks we have had our share of that unfortunatel but we have come out stronger! So yes Immokalee high school is a home to many students and staff because they are there for 8 hours plus how ever many more for clubs sports and extra help for the students! Thank you for your time! And as we say here in IHS Every day is a great day to be an Indian!

    Immokalee High School is a great school because of the people. Students teachers administration even the non-instructional support staff are warm and friendly. Most of the students are fun loving creative and polite when encountered one-on-one. There are not many high high schools where students will open the door for strangers.

    IHS is a great school! Students for the most part are respectful and want to learn. Faculty and staff are dedicated professionals that put the needs of the students first. In a migrant farm-worker community with 99%+ of students at or below the poverty line this school is a beacon of hope to students and their families. The high school is a hub of community involvement and support. Students connect with the truism that their education is a key to a better life!

    I love Immokalee High School because the teachers and staff are very helpful. They care about my children's education and are always willing to help. The safety and education is very important to me. Thank you for being an outstanding school.

    School was a friendly place for both parents and students. Now it is a very cold environment that has only one goal. FCAT

    Immokalee High School has some of the best teachers around but the administration is terrible. They do not follow thru with promised academic plans for the students. Nor do they offer classes to students that will benefit them. Students can and will get lost here if the parent does not stay very involved with them and demand things from the administration. My child two years left here and I seriously doubt that I will let my younger child attend IHS unless some major changes are made in the administration area there.

    At this point 2 daughters have already graduated and the 3rd is due this year. In our case there have been stumbling blocks over the years that have been corrected with parent involvement. The staff is friendly and helpful when a parent comes in. They will take the time to explain what is best for your child. Administration is strong and has a good view of the future of our kids. Each one of my kids had a different area of involvement and it was a good experience for them. Thank you staff at IHS.

    this has been a great school for my nephew. moved here from mi and the school made the transition even more smooth.

    Well although my child has had past promblems the teachers and counslers have helped her get back on track they know that in this point of their lifes they need a person they can count on and I think if it wasen't for them my daughter would now be a drop out. Also the school is very multi-racial. She has tried many other schools and their have been clique promblems and well in Immokalee you sort of just get to know everyone and that becomes your second home without being judged.

    As a graduate from IHS I believe that the teachers don't get enough credit for what they do. It's up to the students to learn the teachers are there. I had some excellent teachers and my four years were the best. I think it is a wonderful school that everybody else views negative because of what they hear and because of our community. If you ever get a chance spend one day at IHS and you will never forget it.
