Absolutely loved this high school! I was involved all 4 years and that made my experience the best. All the teachers I had were passionate about their job, loved to work with students, and help them succeed in the future. I have made the best of friends at this school and still keep in touch with my teachers. This school tries its best to provide the students with recourses after they graduate to help hem get into a good college and eventually get a job.

I would say that my experience at this school could've been a lot better. I wish I could've done much better during theatre auditions for multiple plays, joined more clubs, and made at least actual potential long-life friends. One of my favorite parts from being at Argo is socializing with the teachers rather than other students because I feel like the teachers were more respectful and understanding than many students that I've encountered. Another favorite part from being at Argo was my Advanced Theatre class for the last two years, I feel as if I really grew to who I am from just expressing myself regardless what was said. Let's just say I considered myself as the comic relief! If were to do anything of this over again. . . (and trust me, I've thought about) I wouldn't choose Argo again because I always wanted to be homeschooled or online schooled for my entire life almost; I may not experience what interest memories that I had, but I would want to develop real life skills as a teenager than sit in a classroom for majority of the time.
I absolutely loved my time at Argo. All of my teachers were very helpful and couldn't have done better to help shape myself to the person I am today. Argo does sometimes try to change things for the better of the students, but it could definitely do more to ask the students and advice of the teachers in order to benefit all. The events held meant to unite the students could also use some work to have the students looking forward to attending. The vending machines in the cafeteria could also help by actually being open during lunch periods.
