I love Arlington Elementary School. The staff is great. They are friendly and they are very considerate, they treat the children their as if they were their own children. I don't understand how they are scored low. My son absolutely loves it and his behaviors have improved dramatically since he's been there.

I can't believe this school is rated low. We loved the teachers and the principal. I was very impressed with the curriculum and you could see the teachers wanted to be there and work with these children.
