I attended ICHS and graduated in 2009. I am astonished at the negative reviews and the poor rating. The staff and teachers do EVERYTHING they can for the students, but the students need to put effort into learning too and not just blame the staff. I went onto community college and am working my dream job in Pittsburgh. And I must say A+ to IC for seasoning me and preparing me for the real world!

I am currently attending Indian Creek High School. It isn't one of the best schools but it is fairly decent. I think that the teachers do their best to try to help us and I feel I am getting a good education. It isn't one of the biggest schools either, but that's because we are slightly economically disadvantaged. The funds are low and it provides relief for the students family. It also provides many activities such as football, baseball, basketball, tennis, softball, soccer, golf, student council, SADD and more. I think it is a relatively good school.

I hope to convince those of you who don't understand that this school isn't as bad as some say it is. For starters, funds are low, which is good on parents' budgets, and it has just the right touch of exciting activities, such as SADD, cross country, basketball, marching band, jazz band, musical theater, and MORE. Most of the teachers are good at what they do, but as much as the teachers put into teaching the material, the students, like myself, have to put into learning it. Next, the sports coaches have developed a more suitable and smart way of training that focuses on each player individually and the whole team together which should lead this school to more victories. And foremost, the school is adding a new Band Room that will be able to snugly fit over 150 band members on the first floor. Now, isn't this school lovely?

By far the worst school district I have ever attended. Horrible programs, horrible administration, and an overall lack of caring for it's students.

I have attended Indian Creek for my entire education. I feel that I have recieved a good education thus far. However, I am now a junior studying at the JVS. I was very disappointed in the 'words of wisdom' I recieved upon announcing my decision to attend JVS. Most members of the faculty were unsupportive. Their reasoning was that I am a well-rounded honor student, and that I would be losing opportunity if I left the high school. I was strongly discouraged from attending the JVS. We have only been in school for 7 weeks, yet I feel that I have already learned more than I have in the past 2 years. I feel more accomplished because my study is focused on my career path rather than a generalized education. I hope that future students in my position will realize they need to follow their heart.

In general, I think Indian Creek does what it can with poor funding. I think many programs go under advertised, like Post-Secondary and AP level courses. Also only a small percentage of the student body are exposed to the limited facilities available- specifically the tag equipment. Most of the teachers at Indian Creek are wonderful and genuinely interested in student improvement. If I were to offer constructive criticism it is that many students get overlooked- my child did not, but many do. In an area of Appalachia with little hope for economic recovery every child needs to be pushed and encouraged to strive above their surroundings. I recall a guidance counsellor scoulding my child for interest in Post-Secondary asking 'what the big hurry was to recieve a 4 yr degree.' I would venture to say the answer to that question is obvious- our world is competitive and so are graduate programs.

I am a current Student at ICHS and this school is not an A #1 school but we love it here. The funding is low and the students are few but the teachers are good and the educationi s sound. The school works like its own little town or community just like the surrounding communities and it is a pretty good school to attend.
