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 is more than it looks. On the outside, and the inside, it’s very meek and sad looking. The lights are a dim yellow, and you can tell that the building is dated. But biased on the people you meet, you can have an amazing high school career! I was apart of the music department, and that is where I met all of my friends, and they took me in like family. I will never forget those who were in my section and who I befriended. The band plays hard music that you come to enjoy, and the marching band is one of the best in the nation. The teachers that I had definitely drove me to success. They were easy to get to know, fun to be around, and they have me motivation to do well in school. I never bought food at the school, because I would bring a lunch. But I’ve heard good and bad about the food. The food is ok, with little flavor. And the lunch room can get really crowded. Overall, Arundel isn’t great for its building, but for the people you come to know and cherish.
I enjoy attending to Arundel High School. It’s diverse, cultured, and so many students and teachers. You blend yourself in a crowd of people who have the same interests as you. It’s not discrimination, you can easily find everyone, who are into different interests, be friends. Not only that, but Arundel provides multiple clubs that you can join. Arundel also provides sport teams as in a football team, a basketball team, a baseball team, and more. There are also unified teams like bowling and bocce. The teachers at Arundel are phenomenal. Teachers also use their own ways of educating students by having them doing bookwork and homework. The teachers interactions with the students is amazing. Teachers can vibe with the students. Arundel also have local colleges stop in and establish meetings with the juniors and seniors of what colleges they want to attend to and what they would like to major in.
