Arcadia Unified School District Reviews

I have been in Arcadia schools since Kindergarten. In Arcadia, I felt generally safe and understood by the students, teachers, and other adults. There are many opportunities, academic and nonacademic in Arcadia Unified schools. Though Arcadia is most known for its academics, I believe our schools have great art, sports, and extracurricular programs. At Arcadia schools, everyone will find something to their liking whether it be a club or particular class. Also, although Arcadia may be competitive, it has a very great education program. Arcadia leaves many students feeling ready, confident, and excited for college and what is yet to come. As a senior, I can proudly say that I am in AUSD!

Competitive yet ultimately rewarding, Arcadia High School prepares you for the countless obstacles that college life and beyond has to offer. As long as you're ready to take up the opportunities that come your way and work hard throughout your time here, there is nothing that you won't be ready for. The facilities are mostly new thanks to a large design overhaul in the past decade and the resources are plentiful. There is a place for everyone here!
Arcadia Unified School District is an excellent place to receive an education. Overall, the campuses are safe, with rare occurrences of violence or other alarming situations. In terms of academics, Arcadia is very competitive, and students are constantly pushed to receive good grades and participate in several extracurriculars in order to enter a top college. They are provided the resources for this, including up-to-date facilities and advanced technology--every student has their own chromebook that the district lends out. As for the administration, there is a wide spectrum of teachers. Some truly care for the students' understanding, while on the other end it is apparent that some have no idea what they are doing. Other than that, education here in Arcadia is satisfactory.
