Arroyo High School Reviews

A majority of the staff completely disregards ongoing issues that go on at Arroyo. Administration dismisses a lot of issues that should've been addressed schoolwide. There's a lot of racism and name-calling but the biggest issue they choose to focus on is what girls wear to school. They don't have SexEd to educate students on sexually contracted diseases, HIV, teen pregnancy, etc. There are teachers who don't teach at all but the school has them teach AP classes. They have a super conservative AP US history teacher that preached about slavery not being bad. They don't provide enough resources for students who are contemplating college or educate us on dual-enrollment. Overall, this school is below average and is only tolerable if you go to attend the classes required to graduate for a high school diploma. Not a good school if you plan on broadening your perspective of the world or want to be respected.

The way material is taught here varies along the teachers. There are several teachers who made my experience here highly worth it. There are a few teachers who have given students a difficult time--for both justified and unjustified reasons. The school has mostly Latinos and Asians.

I would like to see more effort being put into preparing people for college in terms of time management and effective study skills.

The Career Center on campus is a great place to get a head start on applying for college, especially since they have computers. If you're a student, be sure to reach out to them.

I haven't really felt unsafe walking around campus, even after school.

For some of our sports, we rank consistently at above average outcomes!

The food here is alright. They have a salad bar that people go past when they're in line to choose what they want for lunch, so people who want healthy options have access to that.
Arroyo highschool offers many opportunities to its students. Every student is provided with mobile hotspot and chromebooks. Classes emphasize CER and are transitioning online. Ap classes push students to their limits and create a community within each class. The arts are celebrated in contests that demonstrate the student's varying abilities. Sports are celebrated in daily morning announcements and students are called out individually in their acheivements. Those who attend school everyday get a lunch line pass and the food ranges from artifical to decent. The teachers are unique and quirky with little to extreme amounts of homework. Some teachers offer tests that do not match what was taught or reviewed. Students are encouraged to study in study halls and tutorials which cuts down on long lunches which is an hour long. Freshman are also shown the ropes of the school with link crew. In conclusion, arroyo highschool has many opportunities for its students even if they fall a bit short.
