Arcanum High School Reviews
Overall, I have enjoyed my time at Arcanum. The teachers, and administrators are great, and always helpful. Also, I have enjoyed my time with sports and clubs. However, if you want to be really involved in a club, students must ask what there is to do otherwise they may not do anything but go to meetings to hear the latest update. The safety and school culture are very calm and collective. Arcanum actually just got a police officer to walk around the school during the day to make sure everything goes smoothly, even though nothing ever happens. One thing that I wish could be improved at Arcanum is how prepared the students are for college. The students do not get many chances to go out and find the kind of career that they want to pursue. Other than that, they do prepare students for college by informing them about scholarships, due dates, and they have some spokesmen come to talk about specific colleges.
Majority of the teachers really try to engage with students and try to be supportive and help us learn. The only complaint would be the students who participate in CCP, not all the teachers and staff are very supportive. They should be more understanding and supportive of our decision to take college-courses and try to save time and money down the road.
Arcanum High School has given me a hands-on, small community education. I was very personal with every teacher and every teacher was willing to talk about "real world application" or just going off to college and finding a job after we graduated. Our teachers were so personal to every student, they only wanted the best for us. They were always willing to push us farther than we thought we could go or teach us something that may not be in the textbooks, but it was important. They were very good at preparing us!
