I have to completely agree that this school has room for improvement. I do understand why though. This school can not afford many decent teachers. Very few decent teachers would want to give up a better paying job in a better environment than AHS for AHS, so the employment is not very good. Many students are awful and out of control, and the school has no power over them. For example, a class I'm currently enrolled in that is out of control. No teaching goes on, meaning no learning does either. It's my best subject, and I have the lowest grade in that class. One teacher I have expects so much out of my class, because we are taking advanced classes. However, he REFUSES to teach us the things he expects us to learn in that class. There is little to no encouragement to do well and make something of our lives. Long story short, if you're considering AHS, don't. The last day of my senior year will be my last day near that school, because I would never send my children there.

This school is not for a student who I don't know WANTS TO LEARN the students play around all day and the teachers have no time to teach because they are to busy telling the kids to be quiet. The schools in larger cities are a lot more serious I reccomend those schools.

I graduated from Arkadelphia High School. This school is not good for students who come from large cities.

I have been extremely happy with the Arkadelphia school system. Not only have they challenged my child to learn well to prepare him for college, they have wonderful band and choir programs. Both Mr.Loyd and Mrs.Corneilus are excellent directors. They have motivated my child so well he now wants to major in music in college. I would recommend this school system to anyone.
