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.


Posted July 3, 2013

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
