My daughter was in DoDDs school in Europe and did not fare well. Since she has been in Ingleside her attitude to school has changed, she is confident and wanting to learn. So far I have only praise for this school. She has been through 6th-8th grade and is now a freshman.

Being a former Student and now having my child enrolled into the district I can say that the small town mindset is in effect. There aren't nearly enough choices for students. Most high schools have several languages to choose from and a debate class as well as ROTC. Ingleside only offers Spanish as a second language and you would think that with the city supporting the Navy as much as it does it would have some kind of ROTC. I agree with a previous posting about the soccer program. Most of the money for extracurricular activities is being spent on football. Its a shame that there isn't more support for soccer. As far as the academics and teaching goes, yes you will find that many teachers are genuinely supportive and care about their student's education.

I come from a big city where you are an unknown. Here at Ingleside High School, it is not like that. I love the Principle here. He is fair and just. I am glad that my daughter attends here. There are many opportunities for her to get Scholarships through the many extracurricular activities that she participates in. The school is real good about encouraging parent feedback/involvement. I am very proud to have my daughter a part of this school district and my son isn't too far behind her.

I think Ingleside is a decent and reliable school for kids. Though it does sometimes is frustrating like most schools I'm pretty happy I would say to attend Ingleside High School. They focus alot of acadamics.

This High School is one of the best in the area. A great number of the students from this school district seek higher education from major colleges throughout the U.S. The students are able to express themselves as they see fit, not regimented like the military. The superintendent is one of the finest men I know, the principal, assistant principal and all the teachers I have met have nothing but the best interest of students in mind. The poster from November seems to think that not to give to the biggest fund generators in the state of Texas is a shame, not true. Besides, if the poster would look into his/her comments a little closer, he/she would see that funds were generated for improvements for all athletics through booster club efforts/contributions. Great town, schools and support.

This school has gone downhill by the way the kids act and dress, with very few progams and things to get involved. They spend money on the footballl team but won't put soccer in which only cost them 5,000 before they took it out. Most teachers seem to have very big classes which make's it hard for the kids to learn. I wouldn't let my kids go to this school.

I was a former student I think Ingleside was a great school! I had the best times in that school. The teachers are great. The band and the chior department are fantastic.

As a former student I believe I can give an accurate description of what the school is like. There are many members of the staff that are very kind, and genuinely concerned about the student body. But the student body it self is, disapointingly, disfunctional at best.

This is a great School! Its fun and exciting and well kept up! The parents are involved with school activites! The Mustang Marching Band is the best in this area, they always make it to state and every year they make Sweepstakes! Good Luck Mustang Marching Band!

This school has uplifted many students. The teachers here are the best in the country. They actually care about what the students feel and take the time to make sure that every last student is passing, whether by contact with parents or enforced tutorial time. I highly recommend this school.
