Over my years at Argo Community High School I have had outstanding teachers which have always been more than happy to help if they see you struggling. The staff at Argo do all in their power in order to help you succeed whether that be in the mornings before school or after school even during their lunch hour. This past year Argo Community High School added what we call Argo Hour in order to help students who are struggling with certain subjects such as math or literature. However, Argo hour wasn't as successful as everyone hoped due to the overwhelming number of students who needed help with a certain subject which caused the teacher to not be able to help all the students. The school is also very diverse so students get to learn about different cultures and traditions through their friends and classmates.

Overall, I enjoyed the environment and energy at Argo Community High School. The staff members and coaches were outstanding mentors that taught the students a variety of essential information regarding colleges, scholarships, and etc.

In regard to improvements, I believe the school does not need any. Argo is following an innovative path where its implementing technology in the educational success of students.
I am an Argo Alumni. Argo is a great school, very diverse which I found to be influential. The academics are good, and the teachers go above and beyond to help you. The area could be a little bit better but the security and staff make sure that students are safe. I believe that administration need to work on how they interact with students as well as start focusing on things to make the school better. I do not believe that this school prepares you enough for college. When I was an incoming freshman I believed that there were a lot of things left out that would've been nice to know before attending college.
