Overall I enjoy attending Arborbrook, mainly because of the student body and the kind teachers. But one thing that bothers me is the dress code. I completely believe in modesty, but no shoulders seems excessive. I agree that spaghetti straps are not appropriate school attire, but perhaps instituting a two finger rule would be beneficial. Also, there should be more opportunities for free dress which leads into my next point. The Student Council at Arborbrook is micromanaged and given little independence and monetary support. I believe the student government should have more independence and also more money to fund prom and homecoming so that there can be a better venue. This money could come from more frequent free dress days. I know many students would gladly spend a dollar or two in order to wear sweatpants to school. Another point is the student body's freedom. I believe that the authority at Arborbrook truly desires students to grow, mature and become young adults. However, they micromanage and reign in any attempts at letting the students have independence. The new installation of cameras feels like not only an infringement on student rights but, it completely undermines any efforts to allow students to grow and mature. They try to encourage students to express themselves but end up micromanaging and protecting them from reality. It may be a good idea to allow high school students to have more independence and room to actually grow and mature.

Most teachers at the school are very helpful, kind, have control in a classroom, and grade fairly. However, in some cases teachers can deny help to students if the student has asked multiple time on a regular basis. This is, I believe, to push the student to learn the material but, it is extremely annoying when a student who has not asked many questions and is genuinely struggling is denied help. Teachers are also generally kind, but there have been a few cases where the teacher can flip on a dime and get upset and annoyed with students. Also, some teachers (depending on the day) have very little control over the classroom and which makes it hard to learn the material. It especially gets on a persons nerves when the teacher does not control the classroom, does not teach the material and still expects us to get good grades on a test. One thing that I do not prefer is some teachers seem to have no objective basis for grading. The grades can be based seemingly on mood and on how they view the individual student. Despite their flaws, a majority of the teachers are good teachers.
Lots of homework, not much learning. The teachers are nice, but only use one or two learning styles when teaching. I enjoyed interacting with my fellow students on the yearly retreat though! This school is unique as far as philosophy, they focus a lot on religion which can be a good or bad thing depending on your viewpoint. I would not choose this school again because the religious philosophy of the school did not fit my personal spirituality and I found the environment hard to learn in.
