The school has an excellent music program. If your child is into music, this is the best! However, the security and the supervision is not so great. A lot of fights (mostly with girls) go unnoticed by the security staff. With todays technology, everyting gets recorded, so you can google "Fights at arivda middle" and can see for yourself. Just because its an "A" school, doesnt mean that it is safe. If there is a bullying situation, administration does take care of it, but what they need is prevention. They need to nip it in the bud BEFORE it escalates.
The school is Excellent school i will recommend it to anyone with my eyes closed. The teachers all faculty and staff are wonderful. My son feels very safe. He was also able to adapt to the school easily.
Arvida Middle School has impressed me as a superb school that emphasizes challenging students to ensure they success not just in high school but beyond. The teachers maintain a high caliber curriculum and the principal is both well liked and highly effective. The music program is exceptional under the auspices of Ms Ventura. My son has evolved academically, musically, and socially in this crucial middle school years thanks to this excellent school, its staff, and administration.
Awesome school! Teachers, Principal, security, all the staff are A+. The programs and electives are superb. Parent involvement is very important and we are always welcome. I really feel my kids are safe and on a great educational environment, being prepared at the best for their future. Thank you Arvida! Go Vikings!!
