Arlington Public Schools Reviews
Review Arlington Public Schools
My experience with Arlington Public Schools was a very positive one. I went to school in the Arlington School District from kindergarden throughout my senior year and I always felt like I was getting a good education and had a safe and positive school environment. Sports were also a big part of my life throughout all of those years and the programs at the middle and high school allowed me to strive in multiple different sports and I received an abundance of support from the public school system. I had a lot of great teachers throughout my time in Arlington schools and only a small handful that I didn't feel helped me in the ways that most teachers should. The schools seem to be pretty diverse in the population and each of the schools really encourage clubs, activities and promote culture.
Arlington prides itself with its diversity, however, they have done an excellent job of making sure that the lower income schools are packed with diversity and those that live in richer neighborhoods aren't. The people at these schools lack school spirit and the ability to work together as a whole community. The most school involvement that I have ever seen the Washington-Lee principal so is retweet other clubs and teachers.
Great schools with hardworking staff. However, the district pushes kids really hard on standardized tests and with academics in general, which puts stress on the teachers and especially the students. So, although everyone is over-achieving (in art, sports, music, theater, and/or academics), these kids really kind of hate themselves and think that they're not good enough when in reality, they're just self-pressuring perfectionists.
