My experience at Arlington High School has been the best 4 years of my life. Arlington was my second home. I was really involved in school activities from school club events to school spirit events. What I would like to see happen at Arlington is to finding their spot at Arlington, how do you fit in? I was seeing myself getting lost with this question every year. You won't know until you try new things, and that's what I would like to see changing at Arlington.

I had the choice of choosing the high school I wanted to and I chose Arlington, yeah, it isn't the one of the best high schools around, but I absolutely love it. it has great electives to chose from like theater, art, media arts, medical, ceramics, and other ones that I didn't know that would be offered here, but are. The office is nice and helpful and the teachers really do care about helping you out when you need it. This school is the "ghetto" school of Riverside, but only because it isn't as big or updated as the newer built school. But I love it here and I'm glad I chose this school.
Arlington High gave me some of the most amazing experiences of my life. The teachers and administrators are some of the nicest people you will ever meet; You can really tell that they care about you. I learned so much and so many of the people there have impacted my life in such a positive way. Of course, high school is always going to be a little stressful but I am very happy to have attended at Arlington High School
