    Academics: The classes are this school are very good. They prepare students for college and for the AP exams. Most of the teachers are very good at teaching the classes they teach. The scheduling process can be a little bit of a hassle because there are usually so many mistakes in the schedules when they first come out.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Arrowhead is not very diverse. However, there isn't much they can do about that. The type of students who go to this school depends on the type of people who live in the area. I don't really see much peer pressure going on, and most students are pretty acceptive of others.

    Overall Experience: Overall, this school is a really great place to go. There are so many extracurricular activities that make it extremely easy to get involved. We are mostly into sports, but there are so many other clubs that students join even if they aren't involved in sports. Most of the teachers are great. I feel that I have a really good relationship with most of my teachers. They are all approachable and easy to get along with. Most are also willing to help whenever they can.
