    WHO WE ARE:
     
     
    The staff and students at Independence High School offer an inclusive environment in which every student is wholeheartedly welcomed and included in our school culture to the degree that they want to be.  Each student is given an individualized education with a method of learning that best suits how that student learns.  We offer a similarly rigorous and highly engaging curriculum as used throughout the district, but through the independent study model, students can learn at the pace they need to master the essential learning targets, at the time of day that they best learn, repeat the assignments to master the material before "moving on" to the next unit, utilize varied methods to show they have mastered the targets, and have access to a caring and accepting staff who are invested in supporting every student's learning.  A student can accomplish their education through a traditional individualized course of study or include participation in a number of small group classes that we offer on campus.
     
    It is our goal to ensure that as many options for the future are available to our students as we can.  Our classes are approved by the US and CSU systems, and if a student chooses, he/she can leave Independence High School prepared to go directly into a 4-year college.  However, if a student plans to go directly into the workforce, we have a number of classes and options to help the student prepare for their career as well.   
     

    Philosophy 

    Every student can learn at high levels and reach his or her academic potential.

     Vision 

    Independence High School uses 21st Century instructional methods to provide a relevant and rigorous educational alternative for every student.

    Mission

    Independence High School will empower every student to be an independent learner, a critical thinker, and an effective communicator who values learning as a lifelong process.

    Technology

     We use technology to accelerate student learning and enhance our students' educational experience.  Through our "blended" learning approach to education, (combination of on-ground and on-line) our students are able to achieve "mastery" of the essential learning objectives in their courses using the degree of technology with which they are most comfortable.  We have computers available ten hours a day for students to use to support their learning.  Students can come to the school as often as they would like to use our computers to complete their course assignments.

  • Welcome to the Spanish Program at IHS. Before getting started all students enrolled in class must attend a one-time student orientation session held in the Reading Room 2nd floor any Monday from 8:30 - 10:00 am. Please be on time. I look forward to working with you!
