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.

Good supportive teachers, although one on one office hours are hard to obtain. Some teachers rush subjects and teach what they feel neccisarry just to pass a student. Clubs are not very active and athletics are decent with dedicated coaches. The guidance staff are very helpful and will develop a relationship with each and every student, they're possibly the best asset to the school. The students display rude behavior and racist attitude toward students of other race, making a school day possibly intimidating. Otherwise a good school dedicated to preparing a student for the future and a good teacher/student ratio.
I had a poor experience with Arthur L. Johnson for many reasons. However, I didn’t put one star because I at least made friends, even in strange places. I was a good kid with good values and I tried my best to stay out of trouble. But I realized that it was no way to live, to fade into the background. I came out a year ago to a lot of hate and backlash. And there was zero support for me or my friends. My friends would get pushed around, go to guidance, and hit a wall there. And so overall, I was happy to leave. I’d never go back.
