Arroyo High School Reviews

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 school seems like a normal high school. There is nothing special about the students, the teachers, or the environment. Students are diverse, although in certain classes there is usually an apparent majority ethnicity. Teachers are very mediocre to bad, but there are a few great teachers for the science subjects. There is a wide range of clubs for specific activities, volunteering, and for certain ethnic groups. There are not any incidents that happen on the school. Fights are very rare. The sports teams are very lacking, but the athletes do try their best. There are lots of people there to help in academics or personal life.
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.
