If you are looking to just get through highschool. It's a scary place. I wasn't interested in sports or music or anything. It was terrible. There are some cool teachers there and I got by but the constant fear of fights and the ACTUAL fights that go on are no cakewalk. It could be a great school but now looking back, I wish I had picked another one.
Irondale has been known for years as a continual well of inspiration and learning. Between the music program and the language arts proficiency- to the AP class offerings- there are many opportunities provided for each student. Regardless of the background or personal struggle, each student is given the tools they need to find their strengths instead of focusing on their weaknesses. Looking back at my education at Irondale High School: there was nothing better for me than to celebrate musical victories by day- and studies the Humanities by night. I thank this school for offering me a way to travel the world before I even left high school. I tip my hat to you.
