Map of Irwin County High School address.

I graduated from this school system many years ago. While attending the University, I found that ICHS gave me a great foundation. I returned to my home county and wanted my children to grow up in this school system. The special education department is second to none and all teachers are responsive to questions and concerns. I have two kids in college and one soon to graduate. Each have received a firm, sound education in a safe environment. Racism? Only if you instigate it yourself. We have a minority principle, a minority BOE chair and an assistant superintendent who is a minority: Each treat all students the same.

We have attended all of the area high schools and Irwin County is even worse than Fitzgerald High. Avoid it like the plague.

The teachers and staff are friendly. You are sure to get a great education. I have been going to the schools here for a while and have always received equal attention as everyone else. They have a strict dress code policy that I respect but don't fully support though. This is however a good school for anyone who wishes to go here.

The quality of education I received at ICHS was wonderful and it the English department is second to none. They prepared me well for college. Racism? I saw all races treated equally. Only those that caused trouble were sent to ISS. I have all of my kids in the system and the Special Education Department is highly rated. Other systems model their special ed. departments after Irwin.

Irwin County High school is a wonderful school. I graduated from ICHS in 2003. I loved ICHS and I encourage everybody to go there. There are some outstanding teachers that prepare you well for college. I do not think that there was as much racism when I went there as there is in surrounding schools. There will always be racism wherever you go and there always will be. No place is perfect.

The school system has a bit of racism, the white kids are handled in different ways when it comes to kids with behavior problems. The black kids are very quick to be placed in alternative school. I just feel that the entire school system needs to treat all kids fairly, in and out of the classroom. I graduated from there and would never allow my kids to attend school there. Atlanta, Georgia

I think the school is overall great and has a good environment. However there are a few issues of racism and unfairness with the principals that should be tooken care of.

I think that the teachers that work here are the best they really care about the students and they show such understanding.
