My daughter graduated from this school and it is one of the few schools that offer the IB program. She was able to graduate with her IB diploma and 30 college credits right out of high school. This saved her money and time. She attended UTA and received her Bachelor's degree in Science in 2 1/2 years. My daughter is very driven and a hard worker, so this school enabled her to succeed. They have great caring teachers that put in the extra time. She was in UIL spelling and the teacher had study sessions at her house with the students and provided food.
I have had 2 students attend school here. The spirit of the school has been astounding. Many of the teachers are super, after Ms. Young tbe administrators don't seem to back up their staff especially with the new principal. My youngest will be going here and I do hope he has a great experience here.
I graduated from Arlington High School in 2013 and am very pleased with the school. I was involved in newspaper, yearbook, photojournalism, golf, cheerleading, National Honor Society, and Key Club. I would not trade the experience I had at AHS for anything the world. There is a sense of community within the school and the students in clubs and teams almost feel like a family. Many of the teachers are amazing and inspiring, a lot of them are AHS graduates as well. I would recommend Arlington to any parent looking for the right school for their child. The faculty can sometimes be lenient, but can also be very strict when the situation is serious. Mrs. Young is a wonderful principal and has done great things at Arlington High School.
We have been very pleased with Arlington High School. The academics are so much more challenging than the private school we came from. The teachers have been great. There are so many more activities, clubs, and organizations to get involved with than the small private schools. The private school teachers were constantly saying so many bad things about public schools that we have found to be so untrue. I encourage anyone in a private school setting to check out Arlington High School.
As a former student of Arlington High, I have seen both ups and downs in my time there. As far as teachers go you have some amazing teachers who work above and beyond and don't get properly appreciated. But on the other hand you have teachers who are only there purely on tenure and tenure alone. The main issue with this school is the administration and the lack of desire some of them have for working in a public school and with teenage students. Arlington High has tons of school spirit and tradition that they are very proud of. But unfortunately, a majority of the time that is held at more importance than education itself.
