Arkadelphia may have a few teachers that don't teach well. But many of them are excellent! The school is very clean and well kept. The principle is amazing, she gives high technology computers that work good. The school is also very diverse! This school has a scholarship called The Arkadelphia Promise and it gives students $1,000 scholarship after they graduate for free! This scholarship can be used for any college you would want to attend. You must make a 19 or above on the ACT to get this scholarship. Overall, Arkadelphia High School is an amazing school and it gave me an amazing experience.

I liked how small the class size was. Growing up with the kids I saw everyday really made my high school experience outstanding. For a while our school was called 'The school of Champions'. Our Football, Quiz Bowl, Band and so many more teams have went to state and proved the great education Arkadelphia High School provided us. Not everything was always positive though, my freshman year it was made aware to the student and faculty that a former student had committed suicide. Everyone knew mental health was a thing but no one ever mentioned it until now. After we were all made aware of the importance of mental health you would see posters around school and the suicide hotline numbers in the bathroom and in the counselors office. Our teachers never swept it under the rug which shows how much Arkadelphia cares for their students.
I, personally had a great four years at Arkadelphia High School. I think that was mainly because I was surrounded by a lot of good people in the groups that I participated in, including band, marching band Colorguard, soccer, tennis, and multiple others. I got to work with a lot of hard-working and talented people who were kind and benefited the atmosphere that I and many others got to work in. Most importantly, I made many amazing memories with those people that I will cherish and never forget. And living in a small town kind of helped with the overall experience of this school, because in a way you feel closer to the people there. You have better connections that you can keep with you for a very long time.
