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.

I personally believe that the best things about Heights are their fine arts (the dance department is AMAZING) and sports programs. They are some of, if not the best, in FWISD. Most teachers give pretty good lessons, but there were a few classes I had where the teacher would just sit at his/her desk and let the students do whatever they wanted. There is a huge amount of diversity at Heights, and you will easily make friends. There are plenty of clubs and activities to be involved in. However, there is often a lot of unnecessary competition between students, which leads to lots of drama. Most everyone cares about your GPA on your transcript and SAT scores more than you actually learning. The buildings aren’t the best looking and there is little security. Most people go off campus for lunch-there are a lot of good options. I am glad I went to Heights. If you want good sports, fine arts, and friends, Heights is right for you. If you’re looking for the best academics, try Paschal.
The high school itself is old, interesting to see the age however it needs new flavor. Its different everyday. Famous actors, NFL stars and even the man who killed the president in 1963. Like I said, its interesting. The administration is quite annoying but i understand their job. Teachers are on a spectrum, there's the really active teachers and the teachers that make you question why they teach. The students all come from different backgrounds, although, you would expect them not to get along. Besides the few, students are friends with each other which helps the schools security. When it comes to sport, this is the go-to school. The best coaching staff i have ever come across who focus on post-high school plans as well. When sports seasons roll around, Arlington Heights plays a game of total domination. Overall, this a good school and I would recommend any student to attend.
