At Arlington Heights Elementary School, the academic year started with enthusiasm and change while our school funding is at such a crisis level and limited resources morale may be at an all time low for many. However, at Arlington Heights hope remains for the future of our children. My daughter s teacher s haven faced the challenge of taking our "babies" from the nurturing introduction of education into the advancement of learning. This was done with encouragement in the process with discipline, knowledge and commitment the schools role and excitement about learning. The school implements a solid structure that is consistent with state standards, interesting and delivers our school district with excellence. Unfortunately, fundraising is extremely flat in our community. While this school has most children below poverty level it is still a darling, happy and positive place for them to spend their day learning. This is a perfect example where one can still see the charm and dedication at our neighborhood school. With an extraordinary school like Arlington Heights we are building a better future for our community and children one class at a time. My child considers her teachers as people to admire, respect and care for. We are fortunate. With extremely limited resources and very few extra curricular activities the teachers at this school have championed their efforts to succeed at educating our children as well as winning over the children's hearts.
My child has attended Arlington going on 4 years now. And my opinion the teachers are all wonderful. Miss Cornu,Mrs.Merritt ,Mrs.folger & Mrs. Beentjes Thank you ! And regarding the school is I feel it provides safe enviroment. Although I would like after school programs more affordable. I couldn't ask for a better place. Go Mustangs!!!!!
My kids (4th grade and 5th grade) have been attending this school for the past four years. We were sent to this school when our home school was closed by the district. We have been very happy at this school. The teachers are great and my kids are doing well. I wish there were more extra-curricular activities that were affordable or free (e.g., Bridges After School). I cannot afford to send my kids to the science camp activities because they are too expensive.
I believe a good schhol. My daughter has a been there 4 years. Most teachers there have been teaching for years which is great I think. I love the fact they have alot family events too.
My kids love Arlington! I feel really lucky to have them attend. As a PTC member I wish there were more parents that would get involved, but the volunteers that we have are great. The only thing I would like to see would be more extracurricular activites that are sponsored by the district and don't cost too much. The after-school programs offered are too expensive to have my three children all participate
I really love this school my kids have gone for 2 years now. I really wish they would offer more after school programs like bridges.
'My daughter (K) and grand-daughter (2nd) attended Arlington Heights. They both love their school, the teachers Mrs Mastro, Ms. Brousan, and Mrs Stuart are all wonderful teachers. They take great pride in their jobs and responsibilities in educating their students. The school has several family nights throughout the year, this extra 'fun' time really seems to add to the childrens since of belonging to their school, where they know the teachers and staff care about them and their futures.

I want to start by stating that my son does not attend the 'regular' programs at Arlington. He is in their one special education class. This class is appropriate in size, includes children in the fourth-sixth grades and is led by a great teacher. He has made fantastic friends here, is not singled out by other students and is progressing at the fastest pace in school yet. I have no reservations about recommending the special education system at this school.
Great school, lots of parent involvement and teachers are concerned about student performance. Sorry to be moving out of area.
I absolutely love the 'Community of Caring' philosophy Arlington follows. The teachers and principal are great and I am very lucky to have my daughter attend this school. I know that she is safe from being teased and bullied. I can only hope to have her and the rest of my children attend up to 6th grade.
