Arlee High School3

The school has greatly improved with the new superintendent. It does need more classes geared toward the Native Culture as Arlee is on of the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Reservation. It would be nice to see more Native personal at the school or at least teachers/staff who are culturally sensitive. A lot of the Native students are disciplined for things that their culture teaches them to do/or not do!
Arlee High School provides an adequate education to those students who wish to learn, but does not punish those who do not. Students get away with WAY too much at AHS. A more strict disciplinary program would really help AHS a lot. Racism is also an issue at this school -- but not toward the usually minority, toward the minority of the school. It seems that this behavior is often encouraged by students, teachers and community members alike. I believe the school (and students) would greatly benefit from advanced classes, as well as more clubs and Extracurricular activities. If students were offered more after-school activities, they would most likely stay out of trouble, and the school crime-rate may lower.
