I am a student here at Arlington community high school and before I came to this school I had horrible grades and had terrible behavior but when I got enrolled at Arlington all that changed. I became an honor roll student didn't get in any trouble and had great behavior.this is a wonderful school the teachers are always there when I need them they helped me strive for success they never gave up on me and I really appreciated that. This is a wonderful school. If you are looking for a school to send your kids send them to Arlington. If the staff asks tell them corey sent you.

Arlington is a horrible school I would not recommend anyone's child . My child was an honor roll student now at Arlington he had his first f it is a horrible school . They should be token over by the state they treat every child like their a wanna be basketball player . The teachers motto is to retain . All of their 7th grade students were retained and the 12 graders are allowed to work nd not get a dime as they sit in work for hours in a deans office. There is a teacher ms.campell that was very unprofessional and mean to my child Arlington should've stayed ips now edpower is making a bad rep for ips the dean uses profanity

I think Arlington High School is a great school, if you are really there to learn you will not let your friends come between you and your work.I attended arlington last year, and i had a chance would attend it again.I love that school,

I was a student a arlington and it was very hard to concentrate in the classes provided for me because of teachers having to act like parents and babysitters. I feel that if you can focus and study hard and you know how to avoid the many issues that keeps students from learning then its the place for you. I cant say wether its a good place for any one else because im not everyone else. You would have to try it out for yourself to really see if thats the place for you. Since i have moved away and attended another school i am doin great than before, i jus had to move myself out of the bad situation i was in (for myself to learn from all the interruptions). Me personally cant judge a school for what they've done in the past. Overall Arlington is a ok school.

I have been a student at Arlington High school for 3 years now, and I am happy to say that gradduation is only 2 months away. I do not recommend anyone send their child here because no one is trully learning or being focused unless being pushed by their friends to do better. This has been some type of experience, but i'm glad it's almost over.

I would never send my child to this school. I graduated from Arlington and my experience was horrible. I then had to send my child there due to being in the district. My daughter's grades dropped. She went from A's and B's to D's and F's. I have tried to take her out several times but I am not getting any cooperation from the school.

Arlingtn is a wnderful high school. It provides a number of diffrent opportunities for your child. It has four small learning cmmunities to fit your child intrests, college prepatory excelerated, or CPA, focuses on academics and prepares you child for college, Science and Technology focuses on science and computers, Health and engineering is where are future doctors and nurses are, and fine arts, where a child can work on a career as an artist, including music. There are many extracurricular activities also. There is a music club, drama club, ROTC activities such as rifel team or Raiders. There are als many Sports, football, basket ball,baseball, softball, track an many more. Parents can also be realy involved. they have seurity dads, which are dads volunteering to watch the students and parents can also check their students grades anf status online. Arlington is a very wonderful school

I would not send, and/or recommend any student to go to this school. My child went there and it was the worst experience we as parent have ever come in contact with. Tried talking with the principals about issues that were very concerning she was very attentive, but nothing was done to resolve the issues that we address. Our child has always been a honor role student before attending Arlington, but after one year there, his grades dropped like a bird dropping out of the sky. We as parent address some of the teachers grading and teaching style with the educators involved and what came out of that meeting was appalling. We since have moved our child to a different school and once again he is on high honor role with colleges sending us letters monthly wanting this student to attend there university. This was our experience if you feel brave take the plunge and try your child there. I would not recommend this. Sincerely, A Concerned Parent

The school is a great learning environment for students especially to ge the mulitcultural experience. At this school students definitely learn how to deal with all different types of people. The principal is well rounded and the teachers are dedicated.The only thing that pulls this school down is the lack of parent involvement. Schools are not just the state's issue but it is also a community and home issue. Therefore I challenge everybody to try to get more involved with Arlington even if you don't have a student there you can still make a change and a diffrence.

Principal Greenwood displays a wonderful attitude towards students and parents, and creates a positive attitude in the school. Most of the Teachers seem to be dedicated and display the attitude of the Principal. However, the classes are grossly over-crowed creating several learning problems for the students and teaching problems for the Teachers.
