    "Be open with your peers and open minded to your teachers and you will go far at AO. Plenty of very welcoming people and faculty. There is no place I would have rather gone."

    "I have several good things to say about this Highschool. First the teachers for the most part are wonderful and make learning fun. Secondly, the sports programs are slowly gettng better and they feel like you are part of a family not just a team. Some cons about the school is that the way rules and such are enforced could change, and the administration, according to rumors when I was in school, loved to do things in a "shady" manner, but whose to say what is true or not. Overall this school was enjoyable and did prepare me/ helped me get into college and with a scholarship, so I cannot complain!"

    "I love how Argenta is a small town school. Some people hate living in small towns, but I believe they are something special. Being in a small town school allows you to get to know everyone and you get to be in a community that comes together as one and helps out with sporting events, tragedies, and community events. Argenta has great staff members that have always helped me if I had homework questions, or even personal issues. They truly care for anyone that needs help and they do a great job teaching. One thing I would change about my school is the lunches. We have always had terrible school lunches, but I also know that schools can't always help that. Overall Argenta is wonderful and there is not much I would change."

    "Attending Argenta-Oreana High school was a mediocre experience for me. The class sizes are small, which is great, but it lacks diversity. Also the school lacked the resources to make the students college ready and the counselor was very incompetent"

    "Not all the sports at the school get equal funding or support. I feel as if the boys sports are favored more. Cross country and track get almost no recognition and they do the best for representing the school half the time. Cross country had to raise money to buy there own uniforms because the school would not pay for them."
