The teachers at this school are friendly and helpful. Though you have to be the one to walk up to them, and that is the first step is getting over that barrier of student vs teacher and get 1 on 1 help with the work. All of my instructors were interested in their subjects and even brought me to become interested in them as well! Some of my teachers even came to the student level so as to make it easier to learn though some of us still struggled with the ones that didn't give out work or even told us to make notes. This made the class difficult, but still manageable.

Arroyo Grande High School has some of the best sports teams in California! If sports are not your thing, they also have a speech and debate team and other clubs. However what makes this school the best is how everyone uplifts and supports your talents, believes, and interests. You quite often see the baseball team at the volleyball games and the whole school showing up at talent shows to support our fellow peers.

In this day and age it is difficult for the fastest pace generation to find a place in the real world where they can socialize and get ready for the times ahead. Arroyo Grande High is one of the few places where this can happen effectively. Where most high schools are over-run with cliques, bullying, social drama, and any number of social troubles, AG is removed from this. It's a place where kids can thrive academically and not have to worry about much of the drama of lunch time. There are no real cliques and everyone interacts in a civil and friendly manner. I knew kids who were the track all-stars as well as FFA leaders, kids who were cheerleaders and book club nerds, and kids who were artistic beyond belief and still made time for water polo practice. Where the rest of the world runs on stereotypes and categories, AG rises above that and encourages an environment of acceptance, understanding, and inclusion.
