I recently graduated from Arab High. Let me just say that it is a GREAT school. Our administration cares about students and ensures we have a safe environment. The teachers took time to help me. We had a lot of fun activities, but also worked hard academically.

Our facilities and sports programs aren't the best, but they are as good as they can be.

WONDERFUL!

I attended Arab City Schools since 2005, this school has shaped me into the person I am today. The school has always been very clean. The administration has always taken the students opinions into consideration on all topics. We as students wanted to have more cell phone privileges, so after a thorough discussion administration decided to let us have our cellphones out in between classes and at lunch. I respect them always keeping our opinions and needs their top priority.
Arab High School is an overall wonderful school system. The people and the community are very supportive, creating a great atmosphere. It's a safe place to learn, grow, and expand your own horizons while preparing for the next step in your life. The teachers care about each individual student, and they are always willing to lend a helping hand. The sports, music, and club organizations exceed expectation in both quality and variety making it easy to find your own comfortable place.
