Attending Arleta High School all four years has been a great experience. It has a very welcoming environment and almost all the teachers encourage students to do their best. The school does have a different schedule than most other schools, and this type of schedule usually "makes or breaks" some students. The school does offer different kinds of make-up courses for students who have fallen behind. In terms of improvement, Arleta High does lack more Advanced Placement classes and even different electives. There were times where it felt like all the students were being pushed towards similar career goals instead of encouraging them to pursue passions.

I liked the fact that Arleta encouraged students to succeed academically constantly and provided a safe learning environment. I would like Arleta to change some rules and to add more clubs so that students can become more involved in campus. I would also like Arleta to allow students to express school culture and become proud of their school and be allowed to expressed school spirit freely. Another thing I would like Arleta to change is to add more sports to the school. I would also like the school to help students prepare for college more! I feel like the school wasted time and resources on things that weren't going to matter once you graduate. Spending more time to prepare for college would have been much more useful.
What I like about Arleta High School was that all of the staffs were friendly. Many students in Arleta High changed my whole life by involving the events. All of the grade students talked to me about my facts. I started to get more popular person because of the values. Also, I talked to some of the students that were part of the team. Some of them talked about me by pronouncing my name correctly. During my last Senior Year, all senior students put me involving and made me become Arleta's Popular of the Year. During the Graduation at College of the Canyon, I was surprised when I called for receiving a High School Diploma and everybody stands and cheered me. About my overall experience at Arleta High School, Arleta changed my whole life and never forget the memories.
