Student Shadowing

Student Shadowing is not required, but may be an informative experience for students less familiar with our program. We pair prospective applicants with a current student, whom they "shadow" for an entire school day (8:30am-2:40pm) to experience AR's classes, community, and block schedule. Please contact the Attendance Office at (707) 476-4203 to schedule a day for your student to shadow. Arrangements must be made in advance and parents/guardians must fill out a Permission for Student Visit Form (click here) that must be submitted by 8:30am on the day of the scheduled visit. Student shadows are encouraged to bring light reading material, as well as lunch or money to purchase lunch. In order to limit academic disruption, we restrict student shadowing to specific dates and cap the number of shadows allowed on any given school day. Not sure how to get to AR?
