Armijo High School Reviews

Armijo is a very unique school. The student community can be amazing and isn't afraid to speak their minds and stand together. Protests are a common thing at Armijo and can range from bringing back senior quotes to standing up against school shootings and calling for gun control. This is my favorite thing about Armijo, considering how diverse it is. We put aside our differences and come together for something important. Academically speaking, Armijo offers many stimulating classes and offers the IB program. The teachers in charge of these honors classes are amazing at their jobs and clearly know what they are talking about. Armijo also offers a variety of clubs and extra curricular activities. Something I never liked too much was the physical education classes. They lack proper information about health, body image, etc. and the classes are repetitive. I've never met a student who thought running the mile was an efficient way to get us to work out. Overall, a pretty good school.

Armijo high is a just an average school. They have the IB program. I was in this program my freshman year. It was very hard to keep up and most of the teachers made us take notes and watch videos. Also they gave hours of homework every night! After dropping out of this program, I returned to the 10th grade and it was okay. I had a couple nice teachers who really cared. I give this school a 5/10 in academics. The students are mixed, some good, some troublemakers. All that matters is that the student knows where they fit in. The library is a comfortable place to hang out if you like to read. Some areas of the school can get routy during lunch. The provided lunch is terrible. Now the school itself is pretty old with some new additions like the library and office. It often floods when it rains. It's pretty old, but the janitors do a good job of cleaning all they can. Overall, the school isn't the best, but it gets the job done. 3/5 stars!
There are quite a lot of things that can be found at Armijo. The school has came very far since it's beginning in 1891. I am quite fond of it's educational environment and classes. Students who come are open to find multiple opportunities and a place for them to fit in. With equality and diversity between all students no matter their origin or identity. The Staff at Armijo is also quite splendid in supporting it's students with their goals to graduate strong and be prepared for their future challenges. Academically, Armijo provides the IB program as well as electives that can get students in a job right after graduation following a certain career, such as welding. If I could give out a factor that the school can work on, I would say it could improve on supporting various groups on campus. They have done a wonderful job so far however, mini communities and groups continue to grow on campus. It would be best to work in advance to help encourage this grow in groups and support them.
