I have been attending Arlington High School for the past four years and it has been an amazing experience. Arlington hosts many different events such as Homecoming , Homecoming Festival and Mr Arlington. That’s only in the first couple of months however! In the spring they have the senior follies and the interact prom. Arlington encourages their students to get involved in things such as sprit week and college shirt day. Arlington also does Cram the Classroom which takes place suiting the entire month in March where they collect foods and toiletries for the local food shelter. They also do a giving tree around Christmas time to give back to families who can’t afford to buy anything. I would not have wanted to spend my high school experience anywhere else besides Arlington

I enrolled in Arlington High School as a new resident of the United States. Assimilating into the US culture was a high priority of mine at the time. The diversity in this school was so poor, I began to lose my Ghanaian culture because there were not enough people like myself who attended the school. The ratio of Americans to African Americans was alarming. My senior year 2016-2017, tensions between African Americans and Americans rose and the police became involved. Apart from that, faculty are very attentive to the needs of students. The school spirit is very captivating and inclusive. Teachers are adamant on timing and punctuality. Counselors give time to every issue no matter how small or big. I would like faculty to treat all students of color with equal respect and for the diversity rate to increase.
Arlington provides classes of all sorts in order to prepare you for your future as well as keep you involved. If I were to change anything it would be the food and providement of teachers. The food is not open to people of all types such as vegetarians or vegans. Being a vegetarian, I have never been able to buy a meal and therefore can never eat. Regarding the teachers, I have had several teachers who do not fully understand the curriculum and therefore do not know how to successfully teach their students. When questions are asked, they do not know how to answer them and/or are not very helpful. Also, when an entire class fails or is close to failing on tests, students are blamed,whereas teachers should be. But overall, I have had a great experience at Arlington with many teachers who HAVE been able to successfully teach the curriculum and have provided help to those who ever need it because their success is their priority.
