Comparing South To North: What Students Like And Dislike

Arrowhead High School consists of two campuses: South which holds freshman and sophomore students and North campus which holds junior and senior students. 


South campus has three levels: the lower gym, the middle floor and the upstairs. The lower gym is for people who play and compete in wrestling matches and or any gym class. The South middle floor has classes from math to science and from art to pottery. The outh middle floor also has one gym only unlike North which has three different gym rooms. The upstairs has English rooms, a food and nutrition room and a sewing room. South has an upstairs unlike North campus, which is one level. 


North campus is bigger than South with North campus having roughly 90 rooms and South having roughly 70 rooms. North has one level but is larger than South campus. North campus has three different gyms and one pool for gym class also for the swim and dive teams. North campus has more student and teacher parking than South campus. North campus has six different parking lots to park at and South only has three places to park, which makes it much harder to get out of school at the end of the day. 


North campus and South campus have different time schedules as well. South campus runs 10 minutes ahead of North campus. When students have a class at South campus, they walk to North campus for their next class. This gives them 10 minutes to walk up to North and to be on time to their next class. 


Every Wednesday, Arrowhead High School students get out of school thirty minutes early so teachers can participate in professional development opportunities. This goes for both North campus and South campuses. 


Julia Payne, a Arrowhead High School junior says “I like at North that the cafeteria is bigger and I also like that we have a pool at North so I will be able to have my swim practice’s near me.“


North campus also has a school store that consists of candy and ice cream. South campus has vending machines and the cafeteria, both of which are open during students’ lunch hours. Unlike South campus, North campus has a coffee shop that is run by the special education students and teachers. This shop is open to students every morning. The coffee shop is a place for students to hang out with friends, study and get something to drink. 


Emily Lauber, a Arrowhead High School junior says, “ I enjoy being at North because It feels like a better and more structured environment and everyone knows what they are doing. I did not like that at South campus there were people everywhere and not knowing where they are going or they dont mind or watch out where they are walking.“
