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!

Arundel High School really comes together as one whole. Whether it is in the classroom environment or throughout our athletic department, everyone at Arundel is a family. The only thing I would like to see change is the timing and schedule of our classes. Arundel used to provide students with an hour to do homework, visit a teacher, socialize, and eat lunch; the hour was known as "Wildcat Hour". I would like to see that brought back because it made the school day a lot less stressful!
What I loved about Arundel was its diverse pool of students. There were many different groups of people that made the school an interesting environment. Additionally, you can clearly see that the staff cares deeply about the students; by seeing the amount of work put into teaching and making lesson plans, the students can certainly see that teachers dedicated countless hours of their lives to educating, not only in the school, but off the clock as well. Additionally, the school takes pride in their athletic department, which in turn creates this supportive atmosphere that can be felt by all students. While I do wish that there were more clubs offered, the ones in place are still very well put together. Although this school hasn't completely prepared me for college, I still feel confident in pursuing a post secondary education.
