ACT state tests results just released and ICC has a composite ACT average score of a 22 plus for last year's seniors.. The state average is 20. ICC students scored significantly above the state average in all areas. The high school provides a free summer ACT Prep program exclusively for its students and it pays off. ICC consistently scores the highest in area on ACT. School is first in the area to offer a Biomedical Sciences program as well as a Criminal Justice program and many opportunities for college credit for its students. Also, great facilities.

As a student of ICC and I have attended other schools before, I can honestly say that Izard County High is the best school in our area. Not only are the teachers actually wanting and willing to teach, they also know the students on a friend-type level. The teachers and administrators do a fantastic job and I would recommend ICC to anyone in need of a well-disciplined and very caring school. The students get along with eachother better than any school I have previously attended.
