Arkansas high school is my home. I love it! It’s a great place with great academics and sports, however the facilities could use some security upgrades and the teaching staff could be way better.

Arkansas High School is a very good high school, but like other high schools, it has its up and downs. Arkansas High School offers many elective classes to help the students choose there future or at show them the basics of it. For example, I am majoring in Computer Science when I go to college. Arkansas High has 4 course for my major which are: Computer Science Level 1/2, AP Computer Science A, Computer Science Level 3/4, and AP Computer Science Principles. These classes have helped me incredibly choose my major. The core classes is very preparing for college, especially with some classes being dual credit, meaning its AP and it gives College credits. The teachers there are wonderful and they show the enthusiasm to teach all students. Overall, I see it as a good high school for freshman to the senior class.
Arkansas high school values the students ability to pass and excell during test. However, it mainly focuses on extracurricular activities that include athletes. Arkansas high school needs to give props and encouragement to robotics. The robotics team overall should include on receiving letterman’s since they too, represent Arkansas high. Overall, Arkansas high school should improve on making sure all activities and teams hold value.
