I graduated this year from inglewood high school and I cant say it's a bad school. The negatives of the school would be that there are many students that don't take the school seriously, the staff isn't understanding, the counselors wont help much, the attendance office was the worse, the worst part about this school was that every idea that we gave to raise money or to have fun would be rejected. I was a teachers assistant on my senior year and the most frustrating thing was that the students always waiting until the day before the grades are due to turn in items that the teacher repeatidly told them to turn in, it would be frustrating and annoying. The positives of this school was the food was great, the electives are really interesting if the student is willing to try new things, it has a college center in the main building, and has amazing ap courses. Although the school isn't so challenging and doesn't have much money. You have to work with what you have I would recommend a day at the school and see how the students and teachers behave

Some people say its a bad school but it is not. There are great things happening at inglewood such as a great band, sports and others. The bad kids make up 20-30% of the school but is easy to ignore. Westside schools say bad things but inglewood highschool is up and coming to past them.

So I'm a freshman at IHS right now & this schools isn't as bad as it seems. I am in the GATE program & so my parents wanted me to apply for City Honors. But my moral is, " Don't knock it, until you try it. " So I went to my homeschool which is Inglewood. I had heard of all the bad rumors and truthfully the school is trying. If you notice, all the surrounding schools are charter or you have to apply. So we automatically get some of the bad students, but they make up 20% of us. Most of us care but due to the kids who don't try we look bad. To anyone wodering about the school, it depends what you want in life. Like if you play sports, then you should go here. We have a great sports program. If you focus on school the maybe City Honors or Animo. But still consider us becuase we have AVID ( college prep ) & due to that I'm 1 year ahead of my friends at other schools. We have a collge center and we have a variety of electives. The school spirit is somewhat okay ~ We have random DJ things at lunch. We've had only two pep rallies so far though. But Homecoming week was a b l a s t. So thats it ~ Before you talk, go check us out. Go Wood ~

I graduated last year in the top ten and I now am a freshman....See the main difference between inner city schools and predominantly white and/or Asian schools is that urban schools focus on getting the student out (graduating them). On the contrary, suburban schools focus on getting their students into college. Minorities tend to reward failure, while others reward success. Most of the positive reviews don t quite make comprehendible sense. Even though ones success in college is up to them, HS is designed to make the transition smoother. Each level of schooling is supposed to prepare you for the next level right?? So think about that before you start to put all of the blame on students. Student tend to do what they see; so if they see adults/faculty rewarding them just for graduating as suppose to being accepted into college, they will do the bare minimum. So to wrap this up, even though I was able to succeed in college, I was not prepared by my teachers. If I had to do it all over again I would have went to a better high school where the principal and the majority of the staff cared more about the children rather than their paychecks.
