I had three children who attended this school and they all liked it. It is a small school with a very nice atmosphere. It's very clean and beautiful. However, I have one problem, they don't really recognize a child who is gifted and there isn't much of a program for a gifted child. You have to ask for your child to be tested. The teachers never advised on that even though my child was an entire grade above his level in all the subjects. Also, I think the Kindergarten to second grade children can handle more homework than they give them.

My son just finished his second year at Arlington, and I'm very pleased. The classes are small, the teachers are caring, supportive, and my son is very happy there, and learning a great deal. The PTA tries to be supportive, and provide important extras for the students. Mid-year the school welcomed a new principal, so she hasn't had much time to evaluate and make any changes. Having moved here from NY, and know first hand about overcrowded classes and poor conditions, I have to say I am pleased with the school, the staff and the children who attend Arlington and their parents. I wouldn't want my son to go anywhere else.

Arlington has wonderful teachers and small classrooms. The staff is warm and supportive, and truly seem to enjoy the children. My son loves his school, and will be sad to leave it...the only down side is that it is K-2.

Arlington Heights is one of the best schools. My two daughters attend and they love the school. Each child is treated equally and encouraged to do there very best socially and academically. The teachers and staff are attentive and the principal is wonderful and he knows each child by name. Who can ask for a better school. -Denise

Our children came from Private Schools in NY and we were afraid they weren't going to receive the same type of great education - we were wrong! Arlington Elementary is a great School. Our children have done very well. The School activites and PTA are one of the best we've ever seen. Mr. Miller the School Principal even gives out his home number so us parents can always be in contact. Wonderful School!
