Arlington heights high school is horrible. They pride themselves on student having high scores and being all about education yet the administration is so disorganized. They also decided to make the students wear collared shirts OR arlington heights shirts so they can make more money. They mine as well wear uniform or ease up on dresscode. The new principal is also very unresponsible and treats the high school students as if they're in elementary

We have had a fantastic experience with AHHS. My son had attended other schools and had not had good experiences at all. Since being at Heights, I have seen a more responsible and encouraged son. We could not be happier. As far as money goes, we are middle class...some days! LOL so our experience has not been that money runs the school. The new principal is fantastic and my son has had great teachers. I am very excited that we found Heights and that my son is a student there. I only wish we had found it before my oldest son graduated from high school. BTW, both sons attended a school with an extremely high ratings on this website and it was a complete nightmare. They and we hated every moment so these ratings all need to be taken with a grain of salt. Every child who passes through the doors of any school will have a different experience so listen to your child, know what you are looking for and judge for yourself. As for my family, we love Heights.

This school is overall the worst school my daughter has attended. The staff and faculty is very disorganized, they lose papers and transcripts all the time. They usualy have no idea whats going on. In the classrooms, its not 15 per teacher, its more like 30 per classroom, and the teachers dont keep their students focused. They only provide about 20 minute work during their 50 minute classes, and over all not much learning at all. Every teacher there is a coach, and all they care about and focus on is their sports, so students who attend who do not join a sport fall under the rug and they are left behind. I suggest looking into different high schools in the FWISD, because this school is NOT good at all. They screwed up my daughters transcript, credits, and grades. When she was a senior, they had her marked as a junior in the school system and almost didnt let her graudate with her class, and no one cared to fix it until i went up to the school district building. I will not be sending my next daughter there because i care about her education and her high school experience. Money runs this school, and staff lets richer kids get away with EVERYTHING, while the rest get in trouble.

This school is run by money. You can look at the students and tell exactly who has the most money, and who doesnt, and you can tell by the way the teachers and staff treat them. The kids who have the most money get the most possitive attention, they get everything they want, and it seems like the teachers even give them better grades because they can. Most of the time the richer you are, the more you get away with. For example, the dress code is pretty strict, colared shirts, school shirts, no ripped pants, workout cloths, or tights. The richer girls wear whatever they like, ripped pants, track shorts, tights, whatever t shirt they like. They NEVER got dress coded, but the other students who were not as wealthy were sent immediately to the office with no slack. And most of the school is not as wealthy as those few, but those few run the entire campus. its unfair, and the teachers dont care. Also, students get lost in the system. teachers forget about them, the office and counselors dont focus on them at all and even push students out of their rooms so they can focus on less important things. overall, out of the 4 high schools i have gone to, this was the absolute worst.

We have had a great experience at AHHS! My daughter came from a small/private school and the transition to a huge school was a little scary us, as parents. I have to say that through cheer and other extracurriculars, she has made many friends and is connected well! She is challenged academically and has to work hard to keep up in the H/AP courses. I disagree that money makes your path at this school because we definitely don't have it and she fits in well with other students who do. As with anywhere else in life, things are what you make of them! We LOVE the principal and her class VP. My only complaint is working with the Counseling office - it seems that everyone wants to point you to someone else for help and it can be frustrating and a big waste of time. There is a strong group of parent volunteers at this school.

Arlington Heights High School is an excellent school in more ways than one. Not only are my classes challenging and our sports team top notch, the people are down right friendly. I love all of my teacher and fellow classmates and wouldn't change them for the world. Our principal is also the best in Fort Worth and is changing Heights for the better. I am currently a junior at AHHS and I look forward to the rest of my time at Heights.

our 3rd child is currently enrolled at heights. The experience our 1st two had was not all that positive. It's a big-city culture with real issues at the vice principal and counselor levels. Teachers are hit-and-miss. Like most public schools some really care about educaion and kids, but the majority genuinely do not. Here's hoping the new principal can have an impact. He seems exceptional.

Just graduated our third child from AHHS. Two older ones recieved partial academic scholarships from top tier Universities and our third was able to excel in sports due to outstanding coaching staffs. The school is very diverse in socioeconomic makeup...but that is a "real world" strength of the experience at Heights. Our students compete very well academically with several of the top area private schools due to an outstanding teaching staff. We are fortunate to have a high quality high school with the city. Go Heights!

I am a current teacher at AHHS, and my youngest child graduated from Heights in 2009. One of the strongest attributes of this school is the diverse student population. The students and teachers, rich and poor, learn to respect each other's culture and capabilities, and so many stereotype barriers are broken down in the hallways, classrooms, and athletic fields. The teachers and coaches are the best in Fort Worth! This old building is finally getting some bond money love that was overdue. The creeky old wooden chairs in the library need to go to next years' bond fire.. Great school if you're college bound. Improving on offering blue collar trades courses. AAYYY HEIGHTS!!!

I have read through the reviews of AHHS and many are very objective and a few are extremely subjective. To those of you who have written whining about how the "Richies' run the school, what better time in life to learn about the real world than in high school. After you graduate from high school and get out in the "REAL WORLD" guess what cupcake? THE RICHIES RUN THE WORLD TOO! Get a Clue and learn it early Study hard go to college and make something of yourself before the spouse and kids because if you sit around and whine the world WILL pass you by and no amount of whining or hand wringing will ever change that....Think about it

Having had two kids that graduated from All Saints and two from Heights I cannot express how much my husband and myself perferred our Heights experience over private school. Public school was a far more positive experience both for the students and as parents. The teachers were much more well rounded and had less 'issues.' They wanted the kids to succeed and cared. We had several private school teachers over the years that resent children of privledge and never had the self discipline to hide it. The parents are just as involved as private school and I think the kids are much more prepared for social issues in college as well as dealing with all kinds of student life issues. My kids went to TCU, Baylor, Univ. Of Okla. and UTA. The ones that went to private school were not any more prepared than the two that went to Heights.

I had a privilege to attend this school and graduated in 2001. Heights was about excellence it prepared every student for the future. I am a minority not rich and made many friend of all kind. When I enter High School I had never imagine of going to college but with the environment at AHHS I had a different thought on continue education. Its contagious, everybody is willing to learn and achieve goals to go to college and succeed in life. Very friendly school regardless of where you come from. I rate this school A+

We transfered our child here from Aledo HS and must say we are so impressed. I don't know if we just got lucky but this is our childs junior year, and she takes all AP courses, and every teacher is outstanding. Our child loves the diversity, the many groups available to join and the all around atmosphere.

This is the best high school ever! The teachers really motivate you b/c they care and I'm in all Honors!

I am currently attending Arlington Heights High School right now. The teachers there are amazing, especially Mr. Sabotin (he teaches english III and Film) and Mr. St Clair (he teaches Japanese). The dress code I have to say is pretty bogus though. We don't have uniforms. Instead we have to tuck in our shirts and they have to be collared. This makes it difficult starting the year when you do not own even a single collared shirt. Even more so if you can't afford to by a new wardrobe. But, besides this I would say that the school is pretty good.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
