I was apart of the SLC (Small Learning Community) FUTURES for Social Change. This academy at Arroyo is such an amazing building block for students to grow in public speaking and show empathy towards peers. The teachers in this academy are such amazing well rounded people who build a connection between each student and personally help them succeed to see them walk the stage. Although there are some flaws like other schools, this is a great diverse school that I would recommend kids attending!

The administration is currently working to create a good learning environment, but unfortunately, they are not doing a good job. They refuse to enact any real punishments, like suspensions, which is resulting in students' bad behavior (in contrast to earlier years)--even in the opinion of campus educators, who normally maintain that classes are usually equally rowdy, despite the time. Besides, there are frequent scares due to fake fire alarms and drills, causing recent panics in the student population who are keenly aware of possible school shootings. There are strong clubs on campus, but little administrative support for them.
Arroyo was an overall good school. They offered all types of classes, grouping students into Academy's. These groups were split up into different types of career fields like health and medicine, engineering and transportation, future leaders, and for tech savvy students. They had a diverse amount of students with many teachers willing to help their students. There were many clubs to keep the students interactive and further their passions. The school might not be the best at most sports, but they did offer most types and were willing to let the students tryout or make a team. Overall, this school had a good impact on me.
