Without the caring staff starting with the front office my daughter would never have graduated from HS. They were there for her every step of the way. Teachers went out of their way to help her and let her know she was special and could succeed.

The school does not follow what you read about the school. There is alot of problems in the school. Crisis with children and threats in the school. Police have been called to the school. How can a school that has such a low student ratio have so many problems. Why doesn't the board of education do anything about the problems with this school? Just goes to show that even the harford county board of education does not truley care about the children and the learning of the kids. Shame on the school for allowing such problems everyday in the school and do nothing to stop it.

Arrow Center for Education Fairmeadows Campus in Bel Air, MD has been the key to my son's personal, academic, social, musical, spiritual success. It has been a journey to parent our son through the tumultous teenage years and high school, but everyone at Arrowfrom the principal to volunteers has been a great support. They have givenus love, nurturng for our son and guidance and he has flourished in more ways than I ever dreamed. Thank you Arrow for your God-given lovingkindness and gentle guidance. God Bless you all! Lisa (mom of 11th grader)

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
