    I thought that the Independence Senior High School was a very great school...the staff was so helpful and pleasant to be around! The helped me so much with making my decision as to where my child would go to school! My husband recently got informed that we would have to be moving to our choice of three different towns in Southeast Kansas. We had to chose from Neodesha Coffeyville and Independence. Needless to say we choose to move to Coffeyville simply because it is just a wonderful community and the school has such nice workers who strive to get the best of the student's ability! I'm looking forward to enroling my students at Independence High School!
