Arlington High School Reviews

I have enjoyed the welcoming attitude a large majority of the student body has. Students are open to making new friends and accepting anyone who enters the school. I also really enjoy the performing arts department. I have been a member of both of the orchestras for the past four years and the environment is energetic and motivating. However, some of the facilities are lacking. One of the gyms has a hole in the wall and several other spots in the school feel physically unsafe to be in.

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.
The teachers here are selfless and beyond dedicated. The school building itself, it's a mess but the people make it exemplary. I just graduated 4 days ago and I had a tough year personally.
Mr. Russo, Mr. Werst, Ms. Geiger Mr. DeLoreto & Mr. Martino supported me relentlessly. I owe my success to them.
