    This “article”/list of statistics kind of negate the whole message that many Arcadia teachers and students have been trying to get across. It does not matter which school you go to–you, the Arcadia student, WILL be successful (if you try). By naming just these few “notable” schools, it makes students feel as though they must get into these schools, or they are less valuable than their peers. Arcadia High students are already under a lot of pressure, and this does not help them one bit. Did the writer of this article go to one of these “prestigious” schools?

      In my personal opinion, you really don’t need to be a butt. It was not written to discourage anyone. It was just to highlight good performing students and encourage everyone to work harder. Just think about it. If it was an article of the EXACT opposite thing (described in a negative way) all students will be under the influence that they don’t have to work hard to meet the demographic.
