Faculty is fantastic. They truly care about their students and are passionate about what they're teaching. I would like to see a better student community at Arete within the near future. Though there are many clubs to join, some should be more advertised. They should also be advertised as inclusive and able to join whenever in order to promote growth throughout each year. If students feel like they are able to join throughout the year, they will not let that hold them back from joining a club slightly late. Overall, Arete has great intentions, I just think they should listen to some of their student's advice and have their student's best interest at heart.

I appreciate that when a student needs help with something, the teacher is always willing to help that student and keeps a positive mindset. It is evident that the teachers care for the students' educations and their understanding of each subject. At Arete Preparatory Academy, the love for learning is very much encouraged, while the students' want for good grades is put aside. Because of this, the teachers make learning a fun experience by giving their students challenges. These challenges allow the students to struggle and from that, gain more knowledge through experience. Something I would like to see change is the amount of attention given towards the campus, especially in the younger students. If each student takes responsibility for something as simple as their own trash, then all of the students can work in a cleaner environment.
Some of Arete Preps best qualities are its academics and its faculty. The faculty at Arete prep care about each and every one of their students. They make it their duty to know each student and to help them whenever they are struggling. One thing I would like to see improved at Arete Prep is the school atmosphere around sports. Arete is a very academic oriented school and because of that the sports often suffer. Their is no true competitive atmosphere around the sports. I would like to see a change in the culture around sports, pushing players to having a winning mindset.
