Arkansas High School Reviews
Honestly, the only thing I see wrong about Arkansas High is the cell phone rule. Teachers need to realize that the golden age of technology is here, and more and more technologies are coming out. It's sometimes okay to put away the text book and break out the cellular device! I also do not enjoy the fact that we do not have lockers, but are expected to carry around so many books and things. This can be a real inconvenience. Otherwise, the faculty is great, acedemics are fantastic, and I can proudly say I will be well prepared for college when I graduate in 2018.
Two many teachers quit without notice. Dealing with teenage kids is a tough job, ask any parent. Many people right out of high school get a degree in education only to find out later that they hate teaching and finding it difficult to reason with kids. Unfortunately this can't be explained, only experienced which brings us back to teacher turnover. Bottom line is we have to have teachers in our class rooms so onward we go hoping someone, someday, will better educate our young students before entering into the classrooms as wannabe teachers.
I was scared to begin a new journey and to be in a school with four other grades. I was socially isolated, with a very small group of friends. Unfortunately, our group in junior high was bullied because we were band members. I was not emotionally and mentally prepared to step foot into a place that I would live in for four years. However, my summer band camp for Arkansas High forever made a lasting impact. I was approached by upperclassmen who took interest in getting to know me. Over time, I was brought out of this shell, and my attitude about myself changed. I took better care of my overall health. I found a family that gathered for the same purpose- to make music. I found myself- I found my passion, and I took part in campus groups and clubs. I excelled in music, making All Region and All State bands. I was drum major, but I was also excelling academically. I was in the top ten of my graduating class, and I was an honor student. Arkansas High was my home.
