Arise High School Reviews

As a senior, I believe that this school was good but not the best. I really like how this school encourages their students to do their best and supports them throughout high school which is a good thing. Academically, I feel like it’s good but the math related academics could be a bit better in the future. This school is a unique school that is small and more open than other schools which I like since most students and teachers know each other well. Safety wise, I believe that the school isn’t completely safe but definitely not dangerous. The staff at the school should handle conflicts better in the future since most of the time, nothing is done from what I hear. Additionally, for me, the graduation requirements are more different than an ordinary school. Besides completing your A-G requirements, you also have to do additional things in order to graduate

Arise High school was a good experience from good teachers to a cultural environment. I really liked how my teachers taught the classes and pushed me to improve my skills and build up my knowledge. Also how teachers have office hours to get additional support. The location of the school is way different from other high schools which makes it a unique school. Since it is a small school, there aren't as much club/programs and sports but at the moment the school has expanded a bit and have seen some changes. Hope to see Arise grow and thrive as time goes.
ARISE high school has a strong focus on preparing students for a four-year college career. Although very limited in resources due to funding limitations, the perseverance in staff over-rules and excels the support towards providing a rigorous education.
