Arroyo High School Reviews

While attending Arroyo High School, I enjoy the passion of some teachers wanting to see their students succeed. Not only do they want their students to succeed, they want to have connections that many students feel that every teacher should have with their students. However, I hope for Arroyo to consider providing more resources after the high school and college life. For example, classes for career technical skills and a hands-on environment for students that want to pursue a certain career.

I am a senior at Arroyo High School and have been attending for almost 4 years. What I love most about Arroyo is our school spirit. Spirit weeks and "Don days" are when we show how much we love our school. There are many teachers I loved having who truly want to make a difference in student's lives. Each person at Arroyo takes a lot of pride in being a Don, including me. However, there are some things I would change about my school. Many of our textbooks are falling apart and tearing, but the bookroom still gives them out. The food at Arroyo is very low quality. Arroyo also needs a school psychologist. Bullying and suicide is on a continuous rise and having a psychologist on hand would be a great tool to help just students combat their fights with suicide or depression. Many parents lose their child to suicide but when schools have this crucial tool, students can express their feelings and emotions.
I graduated from Arroyo as a member of the class of 2014. This school gave me the sufficient tools to succeed in college. However, I learned that in subsequent years, the administrative decisions that were implemented in the school system hindered academic progress. For example, the students were limited to taking three AP classes a year, whereas during my time at Arroyo, students were able to take as many as they wanted, as long as the classes fit into the schedule.
