  • This school has beautiful facilities, it is a sports oriented school and does not highlight academic achievement through the year. Homework is excessive. Gifted program is a joke and is more of an academic hindrance than an assistance resource. Bullying has occurred the four years my son attended and was tolerated. We regret moving to this school zone. The school also favors a particular religion which is against the First Amendment, including hosting school events at a church facility.

  • Incredible school. It now serves 9th-12th grades. Dr. Todd Campbell is now the principal.
    My oldest son graduated in the first graduating class of Independence in 2007 and now my youngest son is a sophomore there.
