I attended Independence High School in 2000-2004. At the time, I lived in Milpitas; however, I requested for a transfer to attend Independence High because all my of previous friends attended IHS. Although i attended IHS to meet my old friends, I noticed that the school was actually a very interesting school. I have of IHS' bad reputation and the excessive fights that occur there. However, after attending Independence High, I have learned that that is not true. The students there are just like the students at any other school. WIth a diverse school, it was nice to associate with different cultures and genres of personalities. Also, the teachers there are some of the best I've ever had who know how to make class fun and are interested in getting the students involved. I think that IHS is a great school to attend where you can experience different environments and different kinds of people.
