My high school experience at Argo was phenomenal. If students applied themselves, they were challenged immensely academically. The honors programs and AP programs were extremely well-developed and prepared you VERY well for the AP exams. For instance, I took AP World History, which was NOT a forte of mine, and managed a 4 on the AP exam. There are good teachers here, teachers who genuinely care for their students and challenge them. The area the school is in is not the best, but the school itself is incredible. Also, there is an immense amount of extra-curricular activities that students can participate in. I alone was involved in 5-10 clubs throughout my high school experience and enjoyed every one.
Worst school I have ever had to send my kid to. He ended up getting his GED in his third year rather than finish here.
This is great school--I would be proud to send any of my children here. The majority of staff members really care about kids, and there are excellent opportunities for students on both ends of the spectrum-- those who struggle and those who excel. There are many choices in AP classes, and the school has done a lot to build these programs for our kids. The school is very safe and well-organized. Don't let the rumors and gossip fool you-- this is a good school.
Although the school isn't in the best area, I consider the school to be just as good as its counterparts Staggering H.S. and Sandburg H.S. The teachers are great with the kids and seem to be very motivated to teach. The schools facilities are top notch and their curriculum is very challenging for students including my son. He is currently in the Honors program and I see everyday how he is being challenged not only by his instructor s but by his peers. At first I was a little skeptical about the school but now I would recommend the school to any parents who may have doubts.
