Overall, AHS has created a positive high school experience for me. The teachers are experienced and care about the success of their students. The students care about their academics and strive to improve the AHS community. Sports are average, with most emphasis on the soccer, hockey, and football. However, the school is not diverse and does not work to improve this situation. The building is in a must need of renovation and the food could improve in quality as well.

Arlington High has very supportive staff and peers. They do focus on education but also have a concern involving each individual students. Some facalty are not, however, the best of teachers and to some the content is not as easily retainable as to others.
AHS is a GREAT school. The students, faculty and staff are excellent and professional. The academics are challenging and prepare the students for life after high school. I would recommend AHS to anyone.
