My experience in Arundel High School has been a very fascinating and memorable experience. It changed me positively. The teaching, the club activities, the class projects, the field trips, my friends, the counselors etc, all had a great impact in my life. On my first day, I had a warm welcome from each and every one. The teachers, amazing! They guided me through patiently knowing I came from a different country. My counselor was one great school guide I would never forget. He gave me assurance that everything would be fine. When he left, turns out every other counselor in Arundel High School are as good. The students were also very nice people and dependable for group projects. Arundel High School is a school with unforgettable experience.

Arundel High School has been one of the best schools I’ve attended throughout my school career. I can honestly say that if a parent wants to enroll their child here, it would be a great choice. They take pride in making sure your child is prepared for life after high school. Although they can work on things such as diversity and food preparation, it is indeed a fantastic school!
Arundel High School welcomes diversity within the school. Many clubs and organizations have been established to meet everyone's needs. Pride period is 30 minutes in the day to get involved in clubs. Our counselors are very supportive. However, I think as a county and school we are lacking the college readiness aspect. Some teachers don't prepare us for college, neither does the redo policy for every assessment. Other than that, my school is one of the cleanest , most community involved schools in the county!
