Iron Mountain schools is a district in flux. There are some really great teachers and great kids at Iron Mountain, but there is a truly WEAK administration. The financial management is poor - they are operating a budget in the red and currently reporting to the State of Michigan. There are staff cuts, program cuts for students, and a general inability, or perhaps reluctance, of the administrators to think creatively in order to recover what used to be a really great district. A significant number of families have removed their kids from schools in this district, and they're using their school of choice option to send their kids elsewhere nearby.

In a town known for brain drain, Iron Mountain Public Schools is the best example of an organization filled with low quality teachers who just don't know any better. Most of the staff have gone to the same school (northern) and teach through worksheets and old lesson plans. Discipline and quiet classes are the most important pedagogy not learning, invitation, or higher order thinking skills. Looking for a school with poor facilities, mean teachers, ignorant administrators, and a culture of mediocrity - Iron Mountain High School is your place!

There are some excellent teachers at this school, and I'm grateful for them. However, the vast majority of faculty members are unqualified and, often, cruel. The atmosphere here is about to explode - tensions are at an all-time high between students/teachers and administrative faculty. It's not a good year to be a Mountaineer.

Great school, an example of the best that public schooling has to offer. Cannot say enough about the dedication of the staff and faculty.

I am a graduate of iron mountain, and now a parent. I have seen it from both sides. As far as the administration is concerned... Iron mountain high school is only concerned with sending kids to college. College, college, college. It has always been this way and still is. I am not saying that college is a bad thing, but it is not for everyone and should not be jammed down every student's throat. The scholarships are great, but this school absolutely ignores everyone else. Now they are cutting programs that give students vocational skills in favor of, get this, more college related classes. Iron mountain priorities are 1) college prep 2) sports 3) no one else matters

If your child is not an A student and has difficulties, please reconsider sending your child here. You cannot count on administration. Send to Kingsford.

Great school! All I have to say is that last year the graduating seniors received over $750,000 in scolarships. That should be enough to convince any parent!
