I loved the smaller population and how everyone knows everyone. Our administrators really encouraged us to get involved and would plan fun events like assemblies and dances. I wouldn't see any changes.

Arcadia Valley highschool isn't just a highschool. It's a place to grow and learn with an environment full of students and very helpful teachers who want to see you achieve more than anything. It's a great atmosphere and I promise you, you'll love it just as much as I do.
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.
