Arroyo High School5

My child was a student of Arroyo High school, graduated years ago, went to a great university. Teachers are nice, lots of activities for students, helps students into great universities. It is a best school in town.
Im currently a student at arroyo high and I honestly hate it. The only reason i'm even at the school is because I haven't moved yet. Almost all of my teachers are so lazy and play online games while im trying to figure out how to do things its just so ridiculous and unnecessary. All the athletes get so much special treatment they pass classes with doing little to no work at all they always get priority for everything! Thanks to this school I am now 100 credits behind and I am a sophomore. If you're planning on moving here or thinking of going to this school don't its not worth it. Moving to el monte is a bad idea period.If you can afford to live in el monte go to la Habra or west Covina even la Habra has blue ribbon schools and loads of cheap very nice newly renovated apartments same with west Covina. If you're reading tis please take my advice, I attend this school I know what i'm talking about it's totally not worth al the trouble and frustration when there's better places out there.
Let me tell you that I want to transfer out of this school. Again. I went to this school for my ninth and tenth grade years but after failing algebra 1 two years in a row, you know it's the teachers and not you who is to blame. Most of the teachers here are lazy and won't even bother to do their job which is to teach, granted there are a few teachers who actually could teach and well. There are also a few teachers who don't speak English; another reason for many students failing classes. I went to gabrielino high school my junior year and loved the teachers but I had no friends and I didn't want to graduate with a bunch of strangers. My mother and I decided to move back in the El Monte area and as of right now I am a senior currently attending arroyo and the classes are already filled up. So much for seniors having first choice in picking classes. I might not even graduate. Don't go to this school. Terrible administrators . I know from experience.
School is pretty fun but some of the teachers I had were lazy so that made me ended up with terrible grades. The best thing about this school is the clubs and band. I had lots of fun when I joined Key club with my friends. the worst part about this school is some of the students behavior, they would get in fights or start many other problems for other students.
The teachers are good and there are many activities to do, but the campus is small. I transferred to Arroyo for my second year of high school. One thing I dislike is how crowded the hallways can be and how you must sit in specified areas during lunch.
i am a junior at arroyo right now and i have to say, i really like it. all but one of my teachers are great. they are all amazing teachers. arroyo offers a program called AVID and i have been taking this class since 7th grade. the main focus of AVID is to help prepare you for college. we get tutored twice a week my college students. arroyo offers many sports clubs, and electives.
