As of Summer of 2019, the Arcadia Administration started a great 2 day back to school camp for students new to AHS. It includes tours of campus and basic information about being a student at Arcadia. It's a great experience that is unique to Arcadia High School. There is a cost to enroll to pay for facility costs (AC, etc) but check with the office for scholarships available for students in need of a little financial assistance. Search for Campcadia on our website or at susd.org/arcadia to see if it's available this year!
Is there a supply list? What does my student need for the first day of school?
No, there is not a supply list for AHS as of Fall 2017. Teachers each create their own supply list to be handed out during the first week, depending on their class. Some teachers want their own binder, some don't. Be prepared to shop the first week of school! Most teachers give 1 week for students to acquire their supplies.
To be prepared we recommend this generic list for the first week of school.
