We are new in the district this past year. We are very please with this district, which confirms our intensions for relocating.
I absolutely hate Eisenhower. The majority of the staff is really rude and offer little or no support. I especially dislike the staff in the maon office. I'm supposed to be able to seek help in the adults at my school, but I don't trust them. I hear them gossip about other students, and they even talked about me as I was walking away. The school is over populated. The majority of students are not friendly, and they are rude as well. They lack supplies despite being the "rich" school in the district. I mean, come on, who runs out of paper? The school does not provide courses that most other school supply such as home economics and comic. The school is more focused on sports rather than acedemics. I really detest Ike, I used to enjoy going to school, but now, I'm transferring to another school. I placed a request for my transcript about three weeks ago, and I still haven't heard from them. Eisenhower is not a school that you want your kids to attend.
My 2nd child is currently attending Ike. Mrs Bawol is a great principal. The school board is a disappointment. Mrs. Blain gets an A+ --- now that is a teacher! Get involved! Participate! My kids were proud to be Eagles.....
I've had two kids go through Ike. One was almost all A s, athletic and basically would have excelled anywhere. The other struggled and was offered little to no support. He was frequently compared to his brother who was able to retain everything he read and basically taught himself. Way too much focus on sports and no attention to students who may struggle. I wish I had chosen another school.
Many of the teachers here are pretty good. Although some have left for the new IB school, most the remaining ones are still good. The athletic programs here are good all around, and many of the kids learn quite a bit from there coaches both from sports, and from their class.
Way too many students. Too much concentration on sports and less on academics.
My sons got a great education there. They have many good academic teams that the boys competed on.
I will be a junior at IKE this fall, and I was on the golf team in the spring (we did okay i guess). I'm only at IKE for a half day every day and then I go to the Math Science and Technology center at the IRC (every teacher there is finominal). At IKE though you really have to get lucky with the teachers there because i have heard some pretty interesing stories.
Mediocre school with poor teaching, bad leadership, and a terrible sports program.
Not impressed at all -- this will be my 3rd child graduating from IKE and none of them liked it --very clicky -- A few good teachers--but not enough who really care-- Something is defintely wrong with their sports programs
Not impressed at all with Eisenhower. Some good teachers but overall definitely not what I would consider a 'blue ribbon' school. Adminstration staff needs improvement. Some teachers don't seem to be interested in helping students do their best.
My daughter is a junior at IKE and she loves it. So far she's passed 2 of the AP tests with 4, they really are preparing her for life after high school. The principal really does a great job. The french teacher is so enthusiastic - she makes me want to go back to high school. My daughter hates the thought of leaving this school next year.
I have had 2 children graduate from Eisenhower, and have been thoroughly unimpressed. They seem to be more interested in their sports programs than academics, and if you have a mediocre student, you had better be on top of it, because they certainly won't be, inc. the counselors. A few really good teachers, but mediocrity reigns here.
Ike has to be one of the greatest schools i have ever sent my child to. I used to send her to a private school, Lutheran High North, and i switched. I was a bit worried about going from the 'safe' private school to public but its working out great. The teachers are always there to help my daughter, they have good control over the students, and most of all my daughter is so much happier there. I am really glad i made the switch to Ike and let me tell you, if your daughter is begging you to go to ike, like mine so happened to be doing, i suggest you listen to her and send her there, its wonderful.
I think this is one of the best schools my children have been to. I think overall the level of challenege these students have doesn't compare to the other schools in the Utica district. The students are spirited, teachers enjoy what they do, and the administration makes it their duty to keep the students safe. I am very proud of this school and would not change my opinion for any reason.
