Arlington Heights has been a great high school experience for me! The teachers are amazing and (most) are very invested in their students' success, and the community is generally supportive. We have most of the Collegeboard's AP classes, too, for those seeking to get ahead for college. That said, it's not perfect: academic vertical mobility is hard (it's difficult to move up academically from regulars to AP classes, or vice versa, and there isn't a whole lot of intermingling between students of different academic levels due to the separation between classes), and there are occasional fights at school. But overall, I'd say it was a good high school to grow at!

They care a lot about academics here and make sure that everyone is being challenged in their courses. Most of the staff and teachers here are also very understanding and easy to get along with when it comes to issues with the students. This school also has a lot of clubs and extracurricular activities such as sports, e-sports, kpop, nhs, student council, gsa, ffa, dance, and so much more. I would also like to add that there is a large amount of diversity here, so no one should have a problem trying to fit in here. The location of the school is an awesome plus especially since there's a huge variety of food choices across the street such as central market, chickfila, McDonalds, Thai food, and more.
As a foreign student, I experienced my first culture clash in Arlington Heights. I had the chance to meet people from various backgrounds and beliefs, which led me to open my mind to new opinions and cultures. Classes were very good, the teachers were very involved in the classes and clearly showed that they cared for their students. Best math teacher I've had, ever (and I'm in college now). There are also many options for electives, since this is a very big school. This is good for anyone who wants to explore potential skills or career paths.
