Arlington Collegiate High School was a great experience for me. They also provided an amazing opportunity to receive my Associate's degree in the process of getting my diploma. This school provided in the way that they could and there were always enough resources to go around for all of the students. Because it is a relatively small school, there were a lot of close relationships between all of the students and the faculty. At times it was a good thing, and others times, it was not. Arlington Collegiate High School is an overall very well developed school when it comes to academics, I would just like to see more student interaction in regards to their personality rather on things that are school-based.

Arlington Collegiate High School is an awesome school, but it has many flaws. The school offers a chance to graduate with your associate degree for free, and it does sound like a pretty sweet deal! The problem is that the majority if not all the students are extremely pressured to do well in courses that are very rigorous. Many are students are very stressed to pass their college classes and it really feels like the administration doesn't care about the students that much, but rather their grades. Call it tough love if you like because at the end it works.
ACHS has really been a nice experience, it's hard work, but it definitely pays off since you are graduating with both your high school diploma and associates degree. Communication with the staff is great, they are always there to help plus they offer you many resources to help you succeed. It's a small school so you get to know everyone and get close to the teachers. I would say the only thing that the school could improve are the clubs, given that the school does not offer sports or arts, they try to make up for it by making you sign up for clubs that last a couple of weeks throughout the semester. Overall, it is a well kept school with amazing teachers and good resources to help you succeed in college.
