Overall, my 12 years in Arab City Schools were amazing. I was taught many lessons that are bound to be learned in high school, but more than that, I finally realized what type of person I would like to be. The teachers and administrators have constantly encouraged me and my classmates to be the best we can possibly be. I was never talked down to or treated lower than my teachers. They respect me and my fellow students. This is definitely one of the most important things that I’ve learned and been able to experience throughout my educational career at Arab. The only thing I would change is the appearance of my school, which definitely not an important aspect of someone’s education. However, it does have a great deal of history behind it and that should never be erased.

I love this school system even with the occasional downfall. Arab City provides a very good education for all students, no matter the grade level. While they challenge the students to be fully prepared for the next level, they are always sure to help the student out if needed. One downfall, however, of this school system is some of the teaching staff become lazy and do less for students than others will. These teachers hurt the students' academics because they do not give fair feedback with a grade.
Throughout my years in Arab City Schools one thing was always the most important: Academics. The school system put education before anything else. The schools are clean, accommodating, and growing year by year.
