It was my choice to change schools and go to Independence. This school has the smartest and kindest teachers I have ever had. I am sad that this site has given this school a seemingly low rating - it deserves much better. I would recommend this school again and again (and in fact, I have). I have never met another student who regrets going to Independence!
I am a senior and I've attended Independence for two years (it was my choice to change schools). I LOVE the school and reccommend it to everyone. The teachers are outstanding and have a passion for teaching; they also appear to be more awake and enthusiastic because they aren't necessarily spending all day with classes of 30-40 rowdy kids. This school allows for much more time spent with extracirricular activities (sports in the morning, clubs, etc). I would give this school 6 stars out of 5!
