I liked how diverse and heavily active the school and the students are. There are many activities, subjects and things t choose from. Also they give different scholarship opportunities for different grades and people. Like photography and even jewelry class art related classes are at the school. The only thing is the school could work on communication to students better because there have been many incidents where it would be something important like picture day and a bunch of people would have no clue. Overall its a great school to be apart of , every school has its pros and cons.

From my four years at Arlington Heights, it has treated me well and been a good time. I feel that academics there are great and it’s because the teachers are great as well. Something that my school is really good at is sports. We are great when it comes to sports and really like to lift up the school spirit!
I really enjoy the people! The principal Mrs. Weeks is an amazing principal and person, she is very helpful to all students. Even when she is busy she will take time out of her day to listen to a student. Majority of the teachers I had/have were very effective in teaching students while simultaneously maintaining their interest. I do have to say that the counselors were often very unhelpful or belligerent. I understand that counselors have a lot of work, but if the principal of the school can make time to hear my trivial schedule problems then surely the people who's job it is to worry about my trivial schedule problems should be able to make time.
