I have had a overall great experience with my teachers. I have received a great education in my classes. My math teacher and chemistry teacher are the best quality overall three years at Argonaut High school. I am really enjoying my government class this year. My teacher has a great way of teaching and is consistent throughout this year. I am on my fourth year of Spanish this year. I have had two teachers for three of the four years. I am really learning a lot and have carried an A all four years! The communication with my teachers is very good. I can always approach them it email them for communication. All of my teachers are consistent in their grading policies. Most of my teachers over all three years all have a different teaching style. I believe this has helped form me into a great student. Having a wide variety of teaching styles is a great way to expand my thinking and keep me motivated. I have enjoyed the variety of different projects I was involved in. The group projects keep us working together. I also have enjoyed my foods class this year. My teacher is great at teaching us how to cook. I believe I will be able to incorporate what i have learned into my everyday life. Overall we have a great teaching staff.

Honestly, the people, education, and teachers at this school are not great, or even good. The students are rude, immature, and have no respect for elders; even some upperclassmen don't respect or listen to the teachers. Students want to be themselves, or different, and get made fun of, teased, or embarrassed. It is not a school of diversity, for race or religion or ideals. The education is poor, with few classes and fewer teachers who actually try to make the classes something that matter or that people can learn from. The teachers are disrespectful, unhelpful, and not serious about teaching or helping all of the students, only the ones who they deem fit. I can't say I would change schools, however, because I have never been to any other and don't know how the experience would be there.
I appreciate the kindness and consideration of every staff member of the facility. The staff helps the students feel as if we are one big family, they go out of their way to make sure that no one is felt left out.Although we don't have a lot of students, the staff make sure to go out of their way to get to know every student. The only thing that would need to change is all the structure of the courses need to be similar, all the classes are so diverse that is hard to have a steady schedule.
