Renovations Make a Big Impression on IHA Students

IHA students and staff returned back to school in the beginning of September and were greeted by major improvements throughout the building.  Every classroom in the school is now equipped with its own air conditioning system, and the sophomore hallway underwent some major renovations.

IHA senior Kerry Flynn expressed her support for the renovations by saying, “I’m so happy that as a senior I can wear my sweater without sweating in each classroom.  The air conditioning came at just the right time for the senior class!”

The renovations over the summer have proven popular among IHA students, and have been benefitting the whole IHA community throughout this first month of school.
