Arrowhead’s Class of 2022 finished their journey as a Warhawk with their final four days of school from May 31st, 2022 to June 3rd, 2022. The Class of 2022 has experienced virtual and learning hybrid from the pandemic to returning back to a regular school year this year. 


According to the Arrowhead Yearbook, The Warhawk Rewind, there were 511 students that graduated from Arrowhead in the Class of 2022. 


Ursula Rose, a 2022 senior at Arrowhead, said, “I can’t believe that it’s over. The past four years went by so fast.”


In the “Graduation Ceremony Information” document sent out to parents and graduates via email, AHS Administration said, “Commencement will be held outdoors in the football stadium. The stage faces the home bleachers with the students seated facing east. There are no tickets for guests of the graduates and no limit to the number of guests per graduate.” 


Graduation took place on June 4th, 2022 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm. The seniors were required to arrive at Arrowhead at three thirty pm to get lined up and get the basic rundown of how graduation was going to go. The bleachers were open to spectators at 3:30 pm. 


Graduation started earlier than expected due to the weather with heavy rain coming in. There was a slight downpour during the graduation getting everybody wet.


In an email sent to staff, Adam Kurth, Arrowhead principal, said, “If you have a student graduating this year, and would like reserved seats for your family, please stop down to the office to connect with Becky. She’ll help you pick out where your seats will be located and we’ll mark them off the day of the event.”


Students had to meet all of the graduation requirements to be able to participate in graduation. That requirement made up 50 credits with certain criteria per subject. Learn more about Arrowhead’s Graduation Requirements here. 


Ainsley Reichert, a 2022 senior of Arrowhead, said, “It was nice to finally be able to graduate.”

The Waukesha County Police helped with the traffic issue that normally happens after the ceremony with everyone trying to get home. They provided traffic routes from both campuses for ways to get home. North Avenue between the campuses was blocked off along with turning right on highway K from North Campus far entrance.
