This is intended for those SEEKING employment here. The admin seems great until you actually work for them. You will receive little support and be subjected to intense securitization (esp. females). Little/no curriculum, old texts, and admin with little experience make working here frustrating. You will ...  Read more

I love working at James Irwin. The focus is on students, where it should be. I could make more money teaching somewhere else, but I cannot seem to put a price tag on respectful students, a culture of high academic and behavioral expectations, dedicated co-workers and leadership, more professional development ...  Read more

I have loved having my children at JICHS. My daughter attended all 4 years and graduated, set up well for college and beyond. I also look forward to the coming for years as now my youngest is attending. She was absent from school due to a bug and the teaching staff got back to me in a timely manner ...  Read more

The teachers give the students very little individual attention and they don't teach you everything you need to know for your homework. The teachers favor certain students that kiss up to them (teachers pet). The lunches make kids puke and is very bad quality. their heaters inside do not work good enough ...  Read more

Not a good school. All kids are required to take a character and ethics class, but it all ends there. Very little respect, poor leadership, teachers don't stay/last long, and test scores are dropping each year. There are plenty of better choices out there.

This school is great academically IF you don't mind a strict dress code, strict dress-code enforcing teachers, the fact that it is Christian-based, and strict teachers in general. I am now a senior (moved here last year) and it's alright. I like the fact that they really do try their best to help you ...  Read more

This school is good for your kids if they fit in "the box". Beware if they are struggling in any subject. The teachers don't know what to do because a lot of them are new/young teachers and don't know how to help the students who are struggling. My child started at the elementary school and I never ...  Read more

This school iss just the best thing that happened to Colorado Springs in a long time. Although limited with factors like money/funds it makes the most out of what it has. I have had the best school years while my time in this school.
