Arcola High School is a technology based environment. Staff and students use technology to advance their ways of learning and teaching. I have attended Arcola High School for four years, and every year they improve on the ways the teachers teach and how they can effectively use the tablets provided. Technology is not the only reason why Arcola High School is a great school but it’s the relationships students build with the teachers. The staff is so friendly and helpful, like most schools, teachers want the best for their students, but in Arcola, teachers go out of their way to build strong friendships with their students. Students can always count on teachers for help on their homework, personal problems or even just to have a good time. My experience with Arcola High School was the best, and I’m glad I got to spend my full four years of high school at this diverse, fun, safe school.
At Arcola High Scool I have appreciated the amount of effort that the teachers give in to making sure that you are ready for college. They always give us the offer to ask them any questions we may have regarding college and that is something I can appreciate. Even with average sport opportunities, the amount of joy that you see from the community is like nothing I have ever seen anywhere else and I have come to really enjoy being a part of it.
