I love the International Baccalaureate program at Arroyo Valley high school! I feel like this program really prepared me for college. I also love the teachers at Arroyo Valley high school because they help me find programs I can attend in the summer to help further my interests in science. Not to mention, they are extremely nice and caring people who are always willing to help.

My overall experience over there was pretty good. Although, being the ONLY muslim and a race other than Black, Mexican, or White made me feel quite alienated from the whole school. However, a lot of people accepted me and there were all nice people; I wasn't bullied as much as middleschool, but there was still a fair share of those people who didn't accept me. One thing that I loved at the school was that the cafeteria had a cool theme a mixture of 1920's to the late 1980's, but some kids stole the props and messed with the vintage look it still had character. One thing I would like to see change is to remove the IB and MYP programs. I was apart of those programs and it felt like a trap to me instead of making me feel more confident and smart it did the exact opposite for me those who weren't fully in the program were basically shunned and it felt like status instead of actually learning or improving your academics just meaningless busy work and getting judged by the other students.
I like the International Baccalaureate program; however, the entire school lacks academic spirit. I wish the food and sports were better. Most of the students here prefer to slack off because there is genuine care for the development of learning in the students. The academies are easy to excel in because the standards do not challenge the students enough to critically think about the world and themselves.
