Fabulous community of carrying professionals. excellent academic instruction and extra curricular activities. Have found that the staff of IRHS are open and available to the needs of the student, the family and the community. The principal is a fine man and runs his school with all the care and security a partent could want.

I think this school needs some major funding so that we can actually get into the new school on time and so that we can get some new equiptment! In other words, I think this school needs major help!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Delaware used the Delaware Comprehensive Assessment System (DCAS) to test students in English language arts and math in grades 3 through 10, in social studies in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The DCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Delaware. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

There are not enough high schools in Delaware for GreatSchools to generate fair Ratings for high schools at this time.
