My name is Brittani Wilson and u can contact me for questions about this school at (386) 329-1955. IHS is honestly one of the worst schools ive ever attended. Mrs. Kriswell came to this school thinking she could change things and all it did was make things worse, the new tardy policy is ridiculous its bad. for example, I recieved a refferal setenced to two days of ac because i walked out of class because the priciple told the teachers not to allow any passes out of class and I needed to use the restroom but i was too worried about getting to class on time so i wouldnt be sentenced to the entire day in ac. For other, the teachers have their favorites, they choose to treat the ones they like best correctly. Ms.Amar is honestly the nicest teacher there and treats everyone eqaul despite the way they look.

I am a student at this school, and i hate it! It is the worst school i have ever attended and i can not wai to get out of here, The Principal thought she was going to come in here and make everything better, even though things were just fine in the fiorst place. All it did was make student rebell even more. All the stupid tardy policy is going to do is make student not even want to come to school be cause if you're late, you are put in AC for the entire day. The only thing they are going to achive with this is the increased drop out rate. I cant wait to leave.

Students are not individuals, but are only a 'team' member under the 'power team teaching' method. Third lunch offers next to nothing for those unfortunate enough to be assigned to this lunch time...I pay $2.50 for my son's lunch and expect him to get that quality meal that has been touted by Food Services, not a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (if he is lucky). The new 'lock the door when the bell rings' rule is surely destined to deter students from a quality learning environment. If a really good student happens to be 2 seconds late, gets sent to detention for the ENTIRE school day, when do they get the quality instruction that the admininstration says is available? I think they need to look at each student when they are late, consider that student's overall school performance, then decide about detention for ONE period only. Great JRROTC program.

This school went from pretty good to unbelievably...horrible. The teachers have always been awful, and I know I haven't been prepared for the real world but at least it was fun. Now, I dread waking up in the mornings. :( Sincerely, Can't-Wait-to-be-Outta-Here

This school would be a great school, if the new learning technique had not been applied beginning of this year. I'm an 11th grade student, and in my classes, I get no one-on-one help from teachers when I'm struggling. Instead, I rely on my 'team' to help me. If they don't know what they're doing, we all fail together. All the 'teams' test scores are averaged together to make a 'team score' for the week. This often brings down our grades becuase we're not being taught anymore. I used to love highschool, and now I dread it. Teachers don't even know our names anymore its 'team member number one' and 'group this and that'. Some teachers honestly do care about thier students, but I've been real dissapointed this year...what a horrible way to end my highschool years...:(

Honestly , interlachen high school just isnt like it use to be , in my opinion. We use to have character , and now that we have all of this new staff and a new principal , they treat us like middle schoolers. we are nothing more than a measly school.nothing makes us different than any other anymore...the new staff think that they are doing us all good by enforcing all of these new rules , when they are just making us hate and not want to be a part of this joke of a school .

I was an interlachen high school student for the last three years, before moving on to another, more challenging school in clay county. Its a great enviroment to grow up and learn in, bur the only problem is that when I moved from Interlachen, I went from straight A's to straight C's and D's; but not because of my behavior or desire to succeed. Interlachen can prepare you for college and higher education, but when you move onto an advanced program(like I did, I'm doing International Baccularautte) or into college it will be the most difficult experience of your life, because you'll be far behind other students. To recap, it has great teachers, great kids, but not the best education if you're looking for getting into top dollar schools like UF or UNF.

I am very pleased with the counselors and most of my daughter's teachers, I am a bit concerned about the way certain punishments are given from one child to the next. Allot of the students feel they are being discriminated by receiving harsher punishment for a lesser crime. I feel more adult supervision is needed in our schools, to many children are smoking and doing drugs and making out with others, where is the supervision we rely on while our children are the responsibilities of others? To many kids getting away with too much.

I am a sophomore at Interlachen and it is a wonderful school. The principal and the teachers really do care about your education while still making you feel like you have enough freedoms being a teenager. They really do handle all problems immediately and necessary and make it a safe and healthy learning environment, which is what a school should be. There are several clubs and sports to participate in: something for just about everybody. All of the teachers are really nice and really funny, they make going to school and learning at IHS a pleasure for all/most students. :)

I'm a graduate of IHS GO Rams! This was and is still a great High School. If I still lived in Interlachen I would put my kids in school there and have them graduate from IHS. I was in band and MR A is the best he and the other teachers took care of there students with pride I wouldn't be were I am now if it wasn't for them. The academics were top notch. I'm proud to say that I am a Ram and i'll never lose the sprit. Good Job guys and Thank you!

I am a former student of IHS and I had a wonderful and very enriching experience in every aspect. The school was very small but the teachers really cared about their students and you really got 1 on 1 attention from the teachers and faculty when needed. The admin and staff were very good at disciplining and the school implemented different programs, clubs and athletics to get all students and parents involved. More parents than not were involved with some aspect of student life. It really breaks my heart whenever parents or people talk bad about this school b/c when I attended it was such a fun experience. I had the same friends from K through 12th grade, and even today those friendships are amazing and still growing. I really did and still do love this school and all the faculty, staff and all it stands for.

Interlachen High school did not know how to handle me. But if you are looking for a school where your child will get in trouble then this is a good school. The deans and faculty would always be looking for a student out of place or doing something wrong. They probably payed more attention to behavior than education.

IHS is a terrific school. My teachers took time to explain in detail the work we were assigned. I feel that the classes I took have greatly prepared me for my life as an adult. Their music program is phenominal, and they offer plenty of opportunities for sports and other extracurricular activities. They always encouraged parental envolvement in every aspect of the campus.

I am a former graduate of this school. The students here are exceptional. I can speak highly of thje athletic department. The coaches of IHS do a fine job keeping the students motivated even without the finest sports. The school also has more spirit than any other school I have seen. Academically the school is good. The classes are tough with a diverse choices. The school also allows for dual-enrollment and honors classes for students who widh to be challenged. I know I wouldn't have traded my high school days for anything else and IHS is a fine school.

This school is awful. Get your kids out now and to a better school while you still can. One of my daughter's final exams last year was based on TVLand questions..this was for History. The kids have no real consequences for bad behavior and the teachers have no interest in helping kids with a lack of interest. Horrible. My daughter is in 10th grade and still doesn't know how to do a real essay, and is just now learning basic English.
