In this day and age it is difficult for the fastest pace generation to find a place in the real world where they can socialize and get ready for the times ahead. Arroyo Grande High is one of the few places where this can happen effectively. Where most high schools are over-run with cliques, bullying, social drama, and any number of social troubles, AG is removed from this. It's a place where kids can thrive academically and not have to worry about much of the drama of lunch time. There are no real cliques and everyone interacts in a civil and friendly manner. I knew kids who were the track all-stars as well as FFA leaders, kids who were cheerleaders and book club nerds, and kids who were artistic beyond belief and still made time for water polo practice. Where the rest of the world runs on stereotypes and categories, AG rises above that and encourages an environment of acceptance, understanding, and inclusion.
