I Went to arnold elementary for kindergarten through fifth grade and although i hardly enjoyed my days their i had attained great scores and did very well, I think they could do better in the factor of helping kids make friends sense almost everyone i knew either avoided eachother or made fun of other people, Eitherway the educational standard is all right in my opinion, Some teachers these days according to the kids i tutor are telling me about their new teaching methods, I Think they could be better and that their are easier methods instead of what they're doing but it does offer a challenge... I Guess.

Arnold Elementary is a 5 star school! You may not can tell from the exterior and even interior aesthetics, but there's a superior level of development, teaching and learning taking place at Arnold Elementary! My children have attended AES for the past 6 years, and I have never been disappointed with the quality of staff and education provided at Arnold Elementary! My children have never been happier and have flourished under the instruction of many talented and dedication teachers that have graced the halls of AES! I do mean grace! The teachers at AES are superior individuals both inside and outside the classroom. I would be remiss if I did not also comment on the parent volunteerism at AES. At any given time that you visit AES you will find parents volunteering in the school, whether it be reading, guest artist, lunch room or recess assistance, copying, etc....Arnold parents are present! Children love AES because it's more than a school to them. It is there home away from home and the teachers, staff, and volunteers ensure that they are safe, loved and beyond all measure educated to the best of their ability!

Arnold is a great school, as others have said before the parents, teachers, and staff go to great lengths to make this a wonderful school. The district is full of politics and since Arnold is such a good school there is little support and funding available, which adds to the facilities issues. Parents often pick up the tab for the district. As a teacher myself I can not speak highly enough about what a great school this is. Totally deserving of a 10 rating.

The principal and staff make this school. They are very involved and supportive. The physical condition of the school could use some updating, but that does not take away from the efforts of staff, PTA and parents who make Arnold a great public school. There is aftercare in the school and right next door at a church.

This is a terrific school. The principal and teachers have been very supportive and helpful with both of my sons, one has ADHD and the other has speech issues. The PTA is wonderful and does not hesitate to assist the staff and the students. I am amazed at how great this school is and would tell anyone to send their children here. GREAT school!
