I have had an incredible experience at Arthur L. Johnson. The teachers and staff are extremely welcoming and truly seem like they want to make a difference in the student's academic achievement. The classes I have taken were challenging but extremely rewarding since I learned a lot from them and it has prepared me for college. There are a wide variety of classes, sports, clubs, and activities that a student can become involved in that personally benefit their knowledge and developing skills that can be used outside of school. There are endless opportunities that the students can take to better themselves and ready themselves for college at Arthur L. Johnson. The school has a positive learning environment that I have benefited immensely from.

What I liked about Arthur L. Johnson High School was that it was a very close town and everybody knew everybody. This meant that you did not struggle to make friends and it created a good environment. Something I disliked about Arthur L. Johnson High School was that there seemed to be a lot of wasted space and money at the school. For example, they had three to four computer rooms that not many teachers used in the first place. The reason teacher did not use these rooms was because the computers in them were outdated. Then the administration brought computer carts so teachers did not need to use the computer rooms but they kept the old computers in the computer rooms and left that space untouched. As a student it seemed to be a waste of resources and space.
There were many positive aspects about my high school. My high school was a great size, 800 or so. This allowed teachers to know the students and students to know each other. It also allowed for a smaller teacher to student ratio which in turn led to more understanding of the course material.

On the down side, our school did not have diversity. I would have liked to meet more students/friends from diverse backgrounds. It did not allow for real life diverse interactions.
