I went to Arroyo High School from 2013-2017.

My favorite part about Arroyo High School were the new science buildings. The set up of the rooms and design were very convenient for labs and other activities we participated in. My least favorite part were the clubs and activities available. I would say only two clubs were very active but were asian dominated. Lucky for me, I was part of one of the two clubs. However, if I were a different ethnicity, I would have felt intimidated joining. This leads into the school culture. The school itself feels very divided. There is no one area where I truly felt like we all came together as one. Not in the courtyard, gymnasium, cafeteria, etc. Everybody was separated and this feeling lingered onto how we feel about the school itself. School spirit was not a thing. There were a few people on campus that did try to bring us altogether who I am very thankful for. The few select teachers who tried to make this place better.

My experience at Arroyo High School was average for the first 2 years. Just trying to pass classes and get good grades, which is pretty much what every student needs. The teachers are pretty nice and the staff can be very helpful and supportive. What I like about Arroyo High School is that they have really great events that happen during and after school hours. They are really fun and bring everyone together. What I would like to see change is more cleanliness. The bathrooms and pretty much the whole school was not the cleanest. Also the lockers are really dusty and some of them are bent. Overall, from personal experience, the school is just an average school.
Arroyo High School is a diverse school with welcoming people. Although there were some incidents in the past that don't create a great outlook on Arroyo, Arroyo is still a decent school to go to. The teachers are caring and will solace you when you're having a hard time. The education is decent, you learn important subjects that are needed for college. The school offers AP classes; however, there are no Honors classes. In Arroyo you also have integrated math. It consists of algebra 1, geometry, and algebra 2 all mushed together. They call it Math 1, Math 2, and Math 3. As you progress into your high school career then you would take harder math classes. Once you reach Math 3, you have an option of taking AP Calculus or AP Statistics. If you're not the best at math you can always downgrade and take an easier class like Math Modeling.
