I enjoy attending Arlington High School because I have some great teachers and there are some pretty fun classes I can take. The school administration is great and seem to do a really good job. The school is well organized and clean. Although I wished the food tasted better and that the student parking lot had more than one entrance and exit. Overall, Arlington High School is pretty cool!

Arlington High School is full of people who strive to learn and gain knowledge in subjects of all areas. It is a larger school, so the only slightly difficult thing about the school, is finding your way around and pushing your way through the hallways. The Arlington community and the school is very community orientated and gives off a family loving vibe. The teachers are always thinking about the students succeeding and being involved in fun activities and experiences. They are also always there for the students in need and do everything in their power to lend a helping hand.
Moving here freshman year was very hard for me considering I wasn't used to being in a high school. I moved second semester after everyone else in Arlington had adjusted to the school and being with older kids. My teachers were so wonderful, I had one who had the entire class send me welcome letters. They even threw me my own party. The counselors helped me break down my barriers and I loved it here. I would like if the school was more diverse with its programs, but overall I love most of the extracurricular activities they offer.
