2016 former grad here. Arvin High is great because most students come from humble backgrounds, and act reverent, even if gangs are prominent which is my concern. Classes are abundant, teachers vary, but for the most part the teachers are great. Sports, I think they are good but not stellar. Academics, I would say are not great because a lot of students do not strive to go further, but that is purely investigative, don't know every student's goals. Diversity is a big no, 98% hispanic! Otherwise, it's a good school when it comes to the community, since it's where every parent's child goes off to. With some more importance on the students that have bad reputations i think is needed, since I see a lot of focus towards those that actually want to go further. Assistance for the less involved students is needed.

My school shows PRIDE. P-Participation R-Respect I-Integrity D-Determination E-Empathy. I like how Arvin High has so many activities that every student can be involved in. My school provides CP and AP/H courses for students and that is highly beneficial. The school is full of positivity. Parents are highly involved in students' academics and also if they are in sports and/or clubs. I wish students in my school that are shy and feel isolated, should not feel tat way. They should make the most of their four years in high school, unforgettable. I wish every student in school were in a club or a sport.. In its academics and the staff. School counselors and teachers always help students when they need it and provide more information they think is necessary for students to over achieve. Overall, Arvin High School is amazing in every way.
Arvin High School is a welcoming to every teenager. This high school has many great courses with wonderful teachers that are willing to help. When I first came to Arvin High School as a freshman, I was afraid that there was going to be bullies, drugs, and all that bad influence. The school is safe because we have staff guarding the place. The staff and teachers are so amiably pleasant. I guarantee that every teacher in this campus will have a close relationship with you. The campus is in a rural area surrounded by fields. There is countless of clubs and activities to help the community and have fun. I would like to see change in diversity because the majority of students are Hispanic or Latino.
