I’ve been at argenta my whole life and it’s a nice small town school; however, the quality of the teachers has gone down in the past few years. When I started high school at argenta I had really good math and science teachers, but both of those teachers have left. The ones that have replaced them are subpar at best. Argenta offers a good opportunity for dual credit classes on campus junior and senior year plus you can go to tech or transfer academy at Richland. Overall AO is just kind of an okay school anymore. It’s gone downhill.

I went to the A-O district since elementary and I have to say after recently graduating from there, they did a pretty good job with what they had. In these times, it is hard for schools to get the resources they need, especially small town ones. But I feel that A-O did its best with its students and had their well being in mind. We can't necessarily afford to have grade A science classes but we make up for it in the math and english departments. The school is nice since it is not that old, but the food has been lacking for the past few years and I have never liked that they didn't try to be more efficient and eco-friendly with waste. Also this is a type of school that would truly benefit from an FFA chapter considering the surrounding farming community. The A-O district is a very pleasant one that cares about its students and would be very good for raising kids in a small town setting.
It was nice that it was a small community. Everyone knows everyone, which can be positive and negative. There are a lot of cliques, which causes issues for a lot of students socially. There are a lot of opportunities that are provided for students, and it is encouraged for students to go after them.
