My experience at Arcadia High School is between average and good. Since Arcadia High is known for being academically strong, you would expect the teachers to be good. However, that is not the case. Most of the teachers on this campus don't teach, and students are constantly complaining that their teachers waste time doing other things that don't help them learn. So you're probably wondering, why does Arcadia score so high academically? It's because the majority of the people in this city are rich, so they hire tutors for their students so that they can excel in every subject, which basically means that people at Arcadia High are paying their way to get to college. As a sophomore at Arcadia High, I feel that our school is a bubble. We have been robbed of our 'high school experience,' and many of us don't get to experience many of the things that typical high schoolers get to experience.

Arcadia High is filled with extremely motivated and supportive students. The student body is quite large, so finding an extracurricular to be involved in is the quickest way to make friends. The good thing about this is that everyone can find something they like.

In terms of sports, the girls' sports are extremely good. Girls' volleyball, tennis, and soccer consistently win league championships and do well in state championships. The best sports overall (both genders) are cross country, track, and swimming. Boys' sports, especially football, are a bit lacking, which is why the attendance at football games is low.

The school prepares students well for college. Teachers are always willing to help students, but you need to take the initiative to receive help. It is very hard to get into academic teams, as many students have been studying/competing since middle school.
Arcadia High School is an extremely privileged and well built facility that offers countless resources and opportunities to its students. The school itself has been newly constructed to offer two gyms, an amazing track, a swimming pool, an amazing performing art center, a library, and a cafeteria. There are so many clubs and extracurriculars that it is extremely easy for anyone to chase any type of passion and get involved. However, the academics are very vigorous and competitive, causing high pressure and comparison among students. Oftentimes, to score above average in exams or classes or tests is the same as scoring the average of your class. The pressure and work amount is extremely high, which places a lot of stress on a student to succeed among their successful classmates and get accepted into a good college.
