These past three years were unforgettable. The moment you step foot in this school, you will be greeted with hardworking, kind-hearted staff that will make you feel like home. The teachers are respectful, eager to teach the young minds of tomorrow. The teachers will treat you like if you were their child. The teachers take an initiative to guide them where or what he/she wishes to pursue in the future. Although its a small school, its the students and the staff that make the school what is truly is meant to be; our home away from home.

High School for Arts and Business is has a friendly, fun, and safe atmosphere. There are students from many different cultures, therefore, you will learn something new about that culture. The teachers support you in every way and notice when you are feeling down. They help you towards the right path to college. This school offers College Now courses which lets you experience what a class feels like in college. The college and guidance counselor advises students how to step up their grades, GPA, and find scholarships. What I would change about the school is to have a third floor for a gym. We only have a fitness room and it gets too crowded. Overall, it’s a wonderful place to be and sadly next year will be my last year in this school.
At the high school for Arts & Business, while teachers and students are friendly. The academics are very poor and the entire school lacks diversity as the population is consisted of mostly hispanics. Teacher recycle boring lessons year after year and often rely on print outs and slide slows to drag their lessons along. There are barely any trips and the ones that do occur are often daft and lackluster and under-thought. They brag about being an "A" school, but half the school population is struggling with proper english and most of them go to community colleges (which they college counselor encourages them they should be anyways). And instead of stronger curriculums and better field trips, the principal continues to spend more money on technology.
