I attended Arlington when I was younger and my son has attended Arlington from K-6 grade and has always loved every minute of it. The one person that truly made my time at Arlington great was Mr. Duley who is still there might I add! Talk about dedication! Thanks for all you have done in the time that you have been at Arlington!
All of my children are attending Arlington for the past 5 years. 5years ago Arlington was a good school. Since then I have seen things deteriorate esp last 2 years-teachers have left or are burned out, the environment is negative except for the efforts of a few choice teachers. the younger and more inexperienced teachers do not see how the negative political management negatively affects the children.Parent participation is supposedly encouraged but in reality is ignored & discouraged & parents who do not concur with the school's agenda are ostrasized I have had experience with other elementary scholls & this school is very negative, punitive & autocratic & children are thusly affected.
I have 2 sons in Arlington right now. I have been more than pleased with their experience. The staff is wonderful, the environment is perfect, what one would dream of an elementary school being. We have moved out of the area so they will go to a new school in the fall. We will miss Arlington!
