My experience at Arab High School has been very good. I have encountered an abundance of constructive experiences and grown from them in many ways. Arab High School contains all the attributes for their students to succeed but also contains a few negativities.
Arab High School offers many different classes and extracurricular activities. I am a member of Arab High School danceline. Danceline has allowed me to gain leadership experience, make new friends and memories, and do something I love. I am in AP classes which gives me the opportunity to prepare for college and get ahead start.
Arab High School has many positives, but also contains a few negatives. Our exam exemption policy is a negative. At most we can exempt 2 exams. If the students grades and attendance meets the requirements for each class students should be able to exempt.
Arab High School has given me many beneficial experiences and has me prepared for my future ahead.

I recently graduated from Arab High. Let me just say that it is a GREAT school. Our administration cares about students and ensures we have a safe environment. The teachers took time to help me. We had a lot of fun activities, but also worked hard academically.

Our facilities and sports programs aren't the best, but they are as good as they can be.

WONDERFUL!
I attended Arab City Schools since 2005, this school has shaped me into the person I am today. The school has always been very clean. The administration has always taken the students opinions into consideration on all topics. We as students wanted to have more cell phone privileges, so after a thorough discussion administration decided to let us have our cellphones out in between classes and at lunch. I respect them always keeping our opinions and needs their top priority.
