Former Student
Feb 22, 2022


As a (I would consider) former student of the school, the experience was honestly average. Not poor, I mean, there wasn't any bullying. But, not great or excellent. I made friends, which was good, people there were actually amazing and are pretty kind! But, the education is the part I'm going to be mainly talking about, not the people.

Teachers are good, some of them I'd even say great! The main thing I want to comment on is the fact that when I went to my new school I felt like I was behind on math. (I'm a year 6, just saying.) Half of the math I didn't understand.

I still don't understand any geometry, I'm getting better at area but at first it confused me, rounding numbers was a breeze but at Arapohue I wasn't taught how to round Thousands, Millions, Hundreds of Thousands, that stuff which didn't feel right to me.

I'm getting questions like 2336 divided by 4 and I can't even answer it, I always leave questions like that blank! Fractions confuse me, what's a 3rd of this shape? I don't know!

Well, that's all of my review. By the way, just by my experience, don't consider Arapohue School a bad school! The kids are kind, teachers are good, if not, at least decent. It's just my experience!
