    My child is in 9th grade and we have been extremely happy. We chose Ingraham OVER our neighborhood high school Garfield and several private high schools because of its IB program smaller size and friendlier environment. It has exceeeded our expectations. There are some really outstanding teachers. The IB curriculum pushes critical thinking not just memorizing facts. And there are an increasing number of highly motivated academic students who are making this choice over Garfield. It is definatley and up and coming school.

    My daughter graduated from IHS. I can say that I was extremely impressed by the teachers she had. She was in the IB program which she found challenging & truly enjoyed. She also participated in sports & a couple of clubs. The Principal & his staff were always involved. The Principal could be found at any time walking the halls & popping into classrooms to see what was going on. The kids all seemed to respect him a great deal. Anyway my daughter's education was superb - she was accepted into every University she applied to & is now at the UW (her first choice) where she's been on the Dean's List for all of this past school year (as a Sophomore/Junior) & is in the School of Psychology.

    The teachers and students in Ingraham are a really great group of supportive people. These teachers work to really make it happen for the students.

    My kid will soon graduate after 4 years at IHS and had from my perspective an exceptional experience made wonderful friends had many excellent teachers played sports (3A I think) went to dances worked hard enjoyed most of his classes (hard to be perfect). A midsize comprehensive public high school big enough for all kids to access many sports arts and clubs small enough to be friendly. IHS offers the challenging International Baccalaurate Program - open to all kids to take one IB class or the full diploma course. Many very favorably compare this program to area private schools and parents with experience with both say the IB program is more challenging than most private schools and FREE (except the tests - like AP). My kid is very well prepared to go onto college. It also has a friendly PTSA. 2009 it will be remodelling and building a math dept. extension.

    Diverse yet united unique yet accepting. All you could ask for in a public school friendly environment that embraces all students.

    I graduated from Ingraham in 2007 and loved it. Even though I transferred to IHS in my 11th grade year the teachers made me feel like I'd been there all along. Ingraham has programs that no other school in the district has including an amazing marching band and a championship-winning colorguard! Contrary to what some people say Ingraham is an incredible school with dedicated staff and students people just overlook it. I'm glad to be an alumnus.

    I am going to Ingraham and was a freshman last year. The teachers are incredible. They relate to students wonderfully especially in the IB and Honors programs. The activities afterschool are abnormaly well-leaded. There's many to chooses from and all the ones that I've been in are fantastic. Alot of people say that Ingraham is dangerous and not very good compared to Ballard and other schools but that is simply not true. Ingraham proviodes a fantastic place for students to get involved and find their inner-creative selves.

    I found Ingraham High School to be very interesting because it offers and excellent staff of teachers that have masters degree or higher. The average educational experience is 14 years that is amazing! The teachers own love of learning is passed on to the students. The AP program not to mention the IB programs are very special and hard to find even in the best private schools. The amount of choices to chose from in world language Arabic Chinese French Japanese Latin and Spanish few of the private schools offer anything near that. It has scored higher in the state average in Math has a top art department offering many classes from fashion illistration drawing painting ceramics sculptuer and photography. Band Choir Orchestra Drama Theater ...etc the list goes on...

    There are some incredibly wonderful teachers there--who are both knowledgable and ethical. And they lack communication skills in that the message they provide is not clear and never spells out all the steps needed in any given situation.

    My son was in private schools until going to Ingraham. I feel like he is getting a private school education for free at Ingraham! Fantastic school and staff.

    i go to this school and i loved it. most are here NOT to hang out but to learn the WASL testing this year are very high.

    The purple math teacher is the best. My child has learned math not just the pushing of calculator buttons.

  • (9 years ago)

    The principal is fairly new second change within four years. The teachers are great. There is some parent involvement but not much. With the exception of a few the students do not seem to care much about academics most are there to hang out.
