Ive been attending IRCS since Kindergarten and I graduate in 2 years. I have really begun to appretiate what makes this school different. The teachers, coaches and teachers/coaches are definately the best. They put in so much more than what they are paid for and I now know they truly love their jobs.
... Read more As far as the students go, you get out what you put in. If you come, dont have preconcieved notions about Christians. Unfortunatly some parents think IRCS is a school to send their kids who dont want to put in any effort towards acedemics. Those parents think IRCS is a school that will "straighten out" their kids. Please, send your troubled kids to CCC or Faragut, if they need discipline. If you want a great Christian education with the best coaches and teachers, send them here Read less

I am currently a student at Indian Rocks; The teachers are amazing and really love what they do. The students, on the other hand, are just plain mean. They are cliquey and not accepting at all. They both physically and mentally abuse younger classmates. The teachers talk about the problem but don't take
... Read more any action. At Indian Rocks you will get "points" for almost anything like not getting something signed or being "unprepared" for class. If you are being beat up by another student then they fail to do anything. I do not recommend this school to anyone! I feel bad for all of the kids who have to go through the abuse that they receive at this school. We are looking to transfer schools. Read less

We looked at private and public before choosing IRCS. Before moving here in Aug from PA, my son attended public school for 5 years and Catholic school for 4 years. He is enrolled in all honor classes and is excelling. They have Info-direct which connects the parents and students with the teachers DAILY.
