I went to Irvington for my freshman year. Due to my mom's new job, I had to move to San Francisco. However, if I didn't move, I would've been happy to graduate from Irvington I applied to Irvington through the arts magnet program and when I got in. i was so happy. I was a really shy person. I didn't talk, I didn't make friends. But since it's an art magnet school, a lot of the people in the school are performers. And can I just say, theatre kids are super welcoming and outgoing and friendly. They were persistent enough to talk to the quiet nerdy girl who wore black every day. .As for teachers, I loved all of them. I am not a PE person, but my PE teacher was great. She was sweet, and nice considering how bad I was. My math teacher was so understanding and very underrated by students. But really, the thing I would like to say about Irvington: I loved it there. If I could go back, I would. Also, there is so much talent there. If you have a talented child who is interested in art in Fremont, send them there. The arts teachers are wonderful, the productions have amazing sets and talents, and the teachers are wonderful. I reccomend it fully.

Teachers are making easy subjects difficult by giving tough tests. They want to prove that they are very good at their subject. Even a good student who can get grade A in other schools, end up getting C in this school, ex Algebra 2 Hons and AP bio. This ruins the GPA of a even a very intelligent student. No start for this school.

My daughter graduated from Irvington in 2013. She was first admitted on a fine arts wavier as a freshman. From the first time she visited the campus, she knew this was where she wanted to be. We actually bought a home here so our son could attend in this area as well. Although she was on a 504 plan for dyslexia and ADD, she thrived here. Each year we met with counselors and vice-principal to plan for her success. She passed the CAHSEE on the first try, she graduated with a good GPA and sufficient AST scores which earned her entry many of the Cal State Universities. She was active in the drama and vocal music departments. She was able to take classes such as sign language and advanced drama. Most importantly, she was happy here. Hats off to the staff at Irvington from one very thankful mom!

It is a horrible experience for us to move our children to this school, wish never make such a big mistake. The school culture lack of harmony, its communication channels are not organized efficiently. Some staff come in just for the job, no passion to teach at all.

Irvington HS must be doing something right....the attendance area home desirability is way up as families strive to move into a highly rated educational situation. The music program remains exceptional...both Horner and Irvington continue to turn out top notch musicians/groups and receive high awards.

i agree with another commentor: it's really hard to learn anything as the "teachers" do little. even i could teach better than some teachers here can. also, there is NO SCHOOL UNITY. all the asians, blacks, hispanics, and white people are all separated. there is no leadership at all, like the school presidents dont do anything....

This is a very good school. The school population is quite diverse and thus, the rankings mean something (unlike the other top rated Fremont HS where the community is extremely wealthy and the school population is not diverse). The negative reviews must be from disgruntled students who were not able to bend a teacher to their will

The teachers here are horrible. I am a junior here at IHS and i went to another public high school when i was a freshmen. I learned more there when i was in 9th grade, them in 10th and 11th grade here combined. The teachers here don't have enough experience and don't know how to teach. Junior year was tough, but most teachers didn't help when i asked for help. I regret even going to this school. Also, many of the lids here are spoiled and love to spread rumors and all groups in this school is completely segregated. the asains on one side, while the americans are on another. Same with the indians, hispanics, and african americans. I. toatlly. regret. going. here.

Administration is often biased and poor in their duties. Principles give no respect to students. Although some teachers are outstanding others are quite lacking. The school requires students to complete absurd projects that work toward making the school look better, yet serve no other purpose. The campus looks disgusting and is in need of a wash and paint job. I am an athlete and I don't expect special treatment, but I do not believe that athletes should be discriminated against either. Teachers from other schools believe that Irvington is truly a poor school. Just because a school is good on paper doesn't mean it is good to attend.

I love Irvington. I sometimes hear some students complain about Irvington being "boring," but these are usually the kids who think they're too cool to participate in clubs or school activities. Seriously, Irvington has won so many prestigious awards, and many of them were won by students, not faculty. Some teachers are OUTSTANDING, while others are...not so great. We're also an art magnet school and we're always looking for new things to bring into our community. Irvington is amazing.

When I went to school there, the teachers got grants and spent summers putting their lessons together. The most important movies, articles, concepts and concern for my education I got from Irvington teachers. They couldn't buy themselves a house, but they cared about me and my life. I still tell people about things I learned at Irvington! I love Irvington. Everyone loves it-they all live nearby and have world-changing jobs!

As a arts-magnet student transfer, I did not have to go to this school. Yet, I'll never regret the decision. I've lived in many places - Chicago, Illinois; Buffalo, New York; Houston, Texas. And through it all, I only have one home - that's here at Irvington High School. We've got more school spirit than I've ever experienced in other places. It's more than just a great school with great students; the staff and programs provided here are an invaluable source of knowledge, encouragement and strength. But even as a California distinguished school of the arts, we seem to be lacking in the simple necessity of our school: Money. I grew up in a suburban area of New York where approximately %50 of property taxes go to fund school system - here our budget is so short that we are cutting programs that once we boasted about - visual and performing arts, sports, music, etc. This is why winning this is so important to this school. We aren't winning this merely for prestige - we are winning this because we need to. Sure, we aren't in the poorest of conditions, but neither are we a 15-story school that has private funding and extra funds in our pocket. Even as America's Greenest School, it would seem that we are short on everything basic, from textbooks, desks, class sizes, etc. Yet through it all, never once have I hated this school. I know I'm going to miss school after graduating this year. I guess then, it's obvious that I'm going to cast my vote in its favor - Who will you vote for?

When I go to Irvington, I feel like it's one big family within the teachers and the students. When I visit other schools, everybody is so ' clicky ' , group wise. Irvington High School is extremely diverse but yet again, we all love each other. Whenever you walk down the halls, you would say hi to someone you know or someone would say hi to you. Everybody knows each other at Irvington, but at most school people wouldn't or don't even acknowledge that some of their classmates are in their class. Irvington is a very safe campus and this school is amazing. ASB ( Assoicated Student Body ) is beyond extraordinary. Teachers here are the best. Irvington is definitely by far the most greatest, greenest, friendliest, etc... school in the world. Come visit Irvington sometimes, then you'll know and get to see it for youself that Irvington IS really the greatest school. America's favorite school is Irvington, for sure.

Irvington High School has been a wonderful place for my children to learn, grow, create, socialize and become young adults! They love it. I love it. My daughter recently graduated from Irvington High School. We have all had separation anxieties from having to leave Irvington High School. Luckily, my son still has a couple of years left!

Irvington is an amazing school and was voted the greenest school in the U.S.!!! The staff is the best as are the students. The standards are set high, so this makes better students than any other school in Fremont and encourages more kids to go to college!

I love the diversity of it's student population and how the students mix regardless of race and economic background. We have kids who live in homes worth 1-2 million dollars and kids in low income homes playing sports together, hanging out together as though they have no idea or that it simply doesn't matter. There is a high academic standard and a feeling that kids want to achieve. There's a huge variety of clubs, sport teams and other extra-curicular for students to be involved with- literally something for everyone. Another amazing benefit is the compassionate teachers and staff who understand and care about the students. If a child is struggling whether it be academically, socially, emotionally, or due to illness, they consistently show concern and respect while working with them to help them find success. This is a no-cliques, everyone matters school!

My daughter had a wonderful education at Irvington High School. The school district changed the school boundaries so that she had to attend Irvington High School instead of having an opportunity to attend Mission San Jose High School, however, because Irvington High School was more diverse, she met people of different cultures and learned about life in general. Now that she is majoring in biology at a U.C. and doing very well, it shows that Irvington High also provided her a great education, academically. Many of her friends have continued to excel at U.C. Berkeley, Harvard, Stanford and the like. What more can a parent ask for?

The school challenges seniors with a Quest Project which is a requirement for graduation. All students must volunteer and the school has a minimum amount of volunteer hours needed for graduation. My sons have enjoyed the athletics and have made lifelong friends through the after school sports programs. The school may not be the prettiest or newest but it gets the job done.

Irvington High School is great because it provides a positive environment for studies and extracurricular activities. Unlike other schools, Irvington is unique in making all students feel comfortable. I was not popular when I attended, but I still felt accepted. At lunch time in the courtyard, I remember seeing the popular ASB kids dancing with special needs kids, which was very heartwarming to see. Irvington feels like a family; being in college now, I miss it.

This is one of the most innovative public high schools that I have ever seen or heard about. As my son says - rather than focusing on the 3-Rs they focus on the 3-As: Arts, Athletics, and Academics. Their Center for Creative Arts (CCA) is just plain fantastic.They learn about Gothic architecture and then use it as a model to learn about forces; study the Grapes of Wrath as literature and then use it to study the Depression; study Hamlet and then put Claudius on trial after learning about US legal principles. Communication is not just writing but also learning to make oral presentations and using art to convey messages. The entire staff from custodians, to teachers, to admins are engaged with the students and the educational process. Just incredible!

IHS requires that student should not have anything lower than a C's. Which encourage the students to maintain better grades. I have a husband and three children that graduate from IHS all of them are doing very well. IHS is a preforming Arts school which give students more options with music, dance, and the arts. IHS works with students that just need more help.IHS takes the time to listen and believes that all students can be help if we all try. My last child graduated 7 years ago and I'm still a volunteer for the site. I'm currently V-P for the Booster club. Parents need to remember that just because your students are in High School does not mean that the site still needs volunteers. I have probably work on everything committee to help IHS and have enjoyed every moment.

Sometimes when I talk about what is going on in my school, people ask if we are an expensive private school or if we have the richest kids in the district. No! Our programs are just that great because of all of the extra work teachers, administrators, parents, and community members put in... and we do so because our students are worth it and we know how to support each other. This sometimes causes a high rate of burn out, but new teachers bring in their idealism and fresh ideas... and it gets even better. Most of our students regularly engage in amazing work. I love working here.

Mr. Murchison has a vision that makes the school better and better. The Fine Arts program is amazing. The academic program is, like the Fine Arts Program equally amazing. If my own daughter, Joelle, was ready for high school, Irvington is where I would want her to be.

Irvington is a magnet school and many people Choose to attend our school instead of their home school. Irvington offers more than any other school in the district with all of our programs for arts, health, sports, and technology. We also have a very involved ASB that organizes all the events. We are are not only good at just academics or just sports. We have a little bit of everything and we excel in every field. We also have great diversity in our student body.

The faculty and staff all work hard together to contribute towards and encourage the free spirited atmosphere, with a balance of respect towards all. Irvington offers academics, dance, robotics, theater, sports,music,choir, culinary arts and much more.

Fremont Unified School District is notoriously underfunded due to outdated state fund distributions formulas. The physical plant and building are barely adequate however, the students, parents and teachers more than make up for this shortcomming. IHS is one of the most equitably diverse schools in fremont both racially and social economically. The principal and staff go out of their way to get kids involved in school and life activities in many different ways. This is a multidimensional school in the best ways and does not let it's students fall through any cracks. Volunteerism is very high among the parents and graduates.

For example, there is the CCA program for kids inclined in the arts department (i.e.: singing, dancing, acting, painting, photography, sculpting); a new program for Robotics and a SHAPE program which teaches students about health and careers that involve athletes (i.e.: sports therapy). These are just some of the few departments that are offered at Irvington High School. Not only that, but the whole school is dedicated to the Go Green Cause. There is a solar panel located near the library and a weekly recycling is held ran by students. Irvington High School helps students learn about different career choices but there is still much more that can be done.

Irvington High School is the best high school because we have the most wonderful teachers and amazing programs. We have the CCA which is a program where arts are incoorperated into English, Science and History classes, where students can express themselves and learn at the same time. We also have the SHAPE program for those intrested in athletic and medical career pathways. Also a new program the NMAA where digital graphics and new media that is incoorperated into classes, (similar to CCA). Our school also won the Greenest School in America. Irvington has something for everyone and is very unique.

Irvington has some of the best teachers and staff nurturing and guiding a diverse pool of students who wants to succeed in life. Through benchmark projects required of all students, such as QUEST, UN, and Change, students learn through service to become responsible individuals, not just to themselves, but to their society and nation as a whole. Now, that's change we can believe in!

I love the different ethnicities and races that congregate together in our school. There is little graffiti and the school yard is clean and organized. There is a diverse amount of teachers, each with a different teaching method that attracts different students. Overall, Irvington is a great school that welcomes all.

I LOVE IHS because we're America's Greenest School -- we don't contribute to world's landfills and the education is great. Teacher-student relations are fantastic; we're like family! Our arts-magnet program is amazing as well. We have over 100 active clubs at our school and people are free to express their opinions. In all, a great learning environment!

This is one of the very best high school for performing arts. Tough class room grading and heavy home assignment pressure, compared to other high schools of Fremont school district. Not an easy high school to breeze through. Highly diversed demography.

Too much emphasis in group projects! Also, Quest should be an elective, not all students benefit from it, and some have been negatively affected by this requirement; in extreme cases failing to graduate.

im currently a student at ihs and i have to say parents dont know much about irvington they dont go there. the classes are great the teachers are helpful [most] and most of the kids get along really well. no one is split up by elementary schools or jh schools so dont make it seem that way. the kids are split up by what they want to be. the school is not perfect there are horribly mean and rude people just like there is everywhere else, there is drinking and drugs but thats up to your kid to decide if they want to do dont tell them not to hang out with those kids cause most people do those things and it does not make them bad people.

My daughter graduated from Irvington and my son is a current Junior there as well. I must agree with the parent that states that Weibel parents are so full of themselves. I strongly believe that the academic as well as the sports program at Irvington keeps the kids balanced and well rounded..I definitely don't believe that the only reason the school is rated high is solely based on 'Weibel' kids...so get over yourself. All the kids are equal and that is whats wrong with our society..parents that teach their kids that they are better than others. Parents..let your kids get involved in track and football and other sports...thats when you will see your childs full potential. Let them have fun at Irvington....the school has a lot to offer.

Both my daughters were students at Irvington HS and went on to college in highly placed UC system. The school has been improving on regular basis. It may not get the best (well compared to Misssion HS) rating but kids learn and grow with what America represents. They become academic as well as street smart.

The level of academic programs in this school is high. Good working class students consistently perform close to or at the same level as Mission San Jose. It is inaccurate to attribute this to the district rezoning. Weibel parents seem to be full of themselves and disregard anyone as their equal while this and other systems in the community suffer because of their inablity to spend their money and time.

If I could get an intra-district transfer to a different school I would. I wouldn't have graduated on time and neither did(or would) any of my friends, some of which graduated junior high with a 4.0 GPA and had 4.0 GPAs after they intra-district transferred out. The program they run under just doesn't work too well or at least it didn't for me or any of myfriends in the classes of 1994-1997. The teachers were wonderful and so was the principal but the education we recieved was sub-standard.
