The courses are not always funded well, some of the classes are too large, and the courses are not all rigorous enough to prepare students for college. However, the teachers here are amazing. Some of the teachers will fight for you, cheer you on, and often times go the extra mile to provide the best learning environment they can with what they have. They truly care about their students and that feeling of support makes the difference in the success or failure in some students.

Arsenal Technical High School is a typical inner city high school with a few stand out teachers picking up the slack. There's not enough security or motivation of most staff to push the students to go to class. As well, I didn't know where the social workers office was until my JUNIOR YEAR! Social workers are an important vent for kids who are less fortunate. There aren't enough counselors to go around for the kids, and all of my college application work has been on my own. I've only spoken to my counselor twice maybe three times this year.
Contrary to many opinions ATHS is a great school. There are so many programs and opportunities that are offered here. I really like the fact that there are programs that allow us to learn skills that can help us after high school, and that can be used to find actual jobs. The only reason that I didn't give five stars is because the students can be distracting and chaotic at times. That's the only bad part of my experience. Of course not everyone is the same, it all really depends on who you hangout with. Overall I have really enjoyed my experience here.
