Argus High School Reviews

When I first step foot at Argus I was honestly mad. I was at a new school where according to everyone, you were an idiot for going there. Overtime I fell in love with it. Everyone gets along, the officer talks great with the students. Even the custodian and lunch ladies feel like friends! At Argus the credit system is amazing, feeling like a 3 week term of school is worth it instead of a 6 month drag where of you failed to meet the requirment kills you inside. Argus however is greatful of their students, proud of their work. Yeah it may be a continuation school, but receiving a diploma there is the same as a prep school, it just has a different name. Argus it feels like your work being done goes towards something instead of a dead end until you become a senior. Argus is the best, unlike the rest!

It was easy to get ahead to graduate early. I took packets that were equivalent to 5 credits per packet and was able to graduate earlier than everyone else!
The teachers here really care about your success and try to do what they can to help in any way they can. From motivational talks, to grading often easily to help with the goal of catching up on credits to graduate, or transfer to graduate somewhere else. Some students can be pretty disruptive because of their behavior problems.
