  • I went to this School from 2003 to 2004. This school is the worst you can ever go to. There is fighting every day and it's near the projects! You get threatened And basically beaten up. Kids have no respect and they go around Banging. But other than that is ALL GOOD. p.s Don't send CHILD TO THIS School!

  • I attended this school from 2002-2005. Let me tell you from experience this is probably one of the worst middle school in San Bernardino. As a Hispanic of lighter skin I was always picked on and made fun of simply because I was lighter than most other Mexicans. I had also been threatened to be jumped several times. Looking back now it was all just petty little arguments people would pick with me. For most people, they would say high school was the worst experience of their lives as far as being picked on by jocks or cheerleaders or whatever... Mine sadly enough was middle school. If I could give this school a zero I would.

  • As an alumni from this school i know what goes on here. I was at Arroyo for Three years and i am a hispanic i never felt any discrimination ar threat from the teachers. I had Mrs Cleaveland as a teacher when she was a teacher at the school and they were all very nice to me. I love this school and my mother was very grateful of this school and i learned a lot i recomend it alot. I was also there when the death happened on campus but this death happened on school camous three hours after school was over and it was a gang not from the school that shot the little boy Anthony. So this had nothing to do with the school.

  • no contact to parent/guardian notification to parent. no parent conferences. no phone calls.
    to me this is unacceptable does not matter what was the issue. parents need to know if you get in trouble because in this day kids can find ideas how to hide their suspension. good thing my daughter let me know about the suspension. i would like to talk with the (...) as soon as possible. threaten a student for refusing to sign a legal document by telling her if she does not sign she will have to go to court, and she have to go to a different school. she is a sixth grade student.
