School Reviews

I highly recommend Arroyo Pacific Academy! My youngest daughter spent 4 successful years there & graduated recently. She had always struggled academically, but flourished at Arroyo, due to their smaller classroom sizes & the individual attention she received from her teachers. I loved how the teachers helped the students stay organized & focused, & kept the students accountable & responsible for their school work. As a result, my daughter mastered subjects she could never grasp before! Her grades went from C?''s and D?''s to B?''s and a few A?''s, (which was quite an accomplishment). I spent a lot of time volunteering, so I could see how things were run. I was impressed with the teachers & just about everything overall! We felt so lucky to have found such a special school. I liked that whether your teen was on the ?''Ivy League?'' path or on the ?''remedial studies?'' path, all received the best curriculum suited for them. My daughter loved her high school years & had many positive experiences. She made many lasting friendships & especially enjoyed the international students. She still corresponds with many & hopes to visit them soon, (in their native country)!

My son attends this school. It is absolutely wonderful. He is a senior this year. The first week of school, I asked him to tell me what his thoughts were about school. He said, " I like this school because I don''t feel INVISIBLE. I ask a question, the teacher stops and listens." Phil Clarke and his staff allow every student a voice. That translates into a positive learning environment.
