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.
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.
It has been okay for my last two years, junior/senior, because my teachers were/are becoming more involved with helping me get ready for college. Our faculty all help to make sure we are in a safe environment and to make sure we are learning at our highest ability. My Freshmen year did not start off very well because I began getting bullied, but one teacher in particular, James Williams, helped me to believe that they were all just jealous because I was pretty and smarter. Without his help I don't think I would have made it through my freshmen year. As I've gotten older it has become more easy, I still have problems with some of the students, but the faculty makes sure that I am safe and able to learn without having problems. As far as our extra curricular we have amazing competitive cheer/dance squads, our soccer, football, and basketball teams are all great, and we have an amazing band!
