My overall experience at Arroyo High School was pretty good. The school continues to upgrade classrooms and materials which is nice. It isn't located in the best neighborhood. There have been quite a large amount of scandals regarding teachers' inappropriate behavior with students which is terrible. Most of the teachers truly care about their students but others are just really terrible. In some cases, more than half the class would be failing and yet the students are to blame. This should be improved by having the teachers address the problem instead of just telling students to blindly study. They are there to teach and guide.. The cafeteria food is decent and have decent salad choices. It is a pretty diverse community.

Arroyo High School is a must-attend high school. As it as helped me, this school and their faculty within are always ready to help a student in need. They helped me with my class schedules to take the more necessary classes. And being a student at Arroyo is a privilege, every week, the student council develops fun and interesting activities and events that allow the student staff to connect more. Personally, Arroyo has an excellent academic system; offering a wide option of classes that will prepare you for higher levels of education. The school is also known for its athletic system. Arroyo has many sports that the students can join which include wrestling and softball. Overall, my experience at Arroyo has been exemplary. Because of the classes I’ve taken, I’m now ahead in credits for graduation. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I can later attend a 4-year university and earn a bachelors in art.
In my own perspective, Arroyo High School is a good environment for teenagers. Arroyo High School possesses a huge number of teachers who have many years experience in teaching as well as helpful counselors that are willing to listen to students' stories and give a good advices. Moreover, as a student who has spent 2 years in Arroyo High School, I have never heard bullies, drugs, or something negative. It also has lots of meaningful and fun activities such as Key Club, Science Club, etc. In brief, I am really proudly to introduce Arroyo High School to everybody.
