Arleta teaches you how to become a better speaker, a self-taught individual, and most importantly, an analyzer. All 4 of these ESLR's are a growth method they use on the students. I believe these will be reflected on the real world which is why I enjoy attending Arleta High School. They have an amazing staff. Tutoring is always available before, during, and afterschool aswell. I'm currently in the Girls Basketball team. I've been in the program for 3 years. The program has supported me with academics and developing my skills. The coach is great and is a great resource for any problem you might encounter on campus. Attendance rate at Arleta is at a 97% which is amazing because the classes don't have to be postponed during lessons to help the absent students. Overall, Arleta High School has been great to my peers and I. This school has been preparing me for the real world, college, and a job.

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.
