Arcadia Valley High School Reviews

There are some very great teachers, who do their job the best they can, and they care about the students (Ms. Bayless, Mr. Oberle, Mrs. Brunk). But also there are terrible teachers. teachers who gossip and spread rumors about and with students (Mrs. Turner), there are teachers who only care about their pay (Mr. Johnson and Mr. Barzowski), and the other teachers are a mixture of both, some better than others. the counselors are great and will help you as long as they have time and aren't busing helping someone else. the curriculum is alright. English does a good job at covering all that it needs to and even does extra, math can be really goo, but sometimes Mrs. Spitzmiller expects you to know random information without teaching it (overall she is a good teacher), Science is good but if you don't pay attention and study you might not make the grade (A lot of kids take it expecting to be able to pass without giving any effort), Spanish covers all necessary and more if you just ask questions and try, and you don't really have to try very hard to pass history. There is an average amount of work, but you do have to try on it or else you could fail. the scheduling class process is easy and efficient. The "popular classes" are mainly classes with "cool" teachers, and the "cool" teachers kind of suck. like they are only cool if you are a prep or really popular.

Teachers at Arcadia Valley are very knowledgeable about their content area. They are always trying new approaching to get kids involved in learning. They are very fair and consistent with their grading. Teachers are interested in their students lives and go out of their way to make sure students are included. If there is a new student, teachers will keep an eye on them to make sure they are making friends and if they don't seem to be on their own, they will introduce them to other students that may have the same interests.
My school has pushed me to learn and be good at what my strong subjects are. I found out who I was in high school and what my aspirations are. I figured out what I am interested in doing for the rest of my life with the help of my teachers, parents, and peers. I would choose this school again because you have so many opportunities with college classes and help finding the right major for you. The one thing that makes this school unique is the counselors. Not only do they work with your schedule, but they help and support you with scholarships and career options and choices that fit you best.
