I participated in Arlington schools from kindergarten through my high school graduation. I had a great experience and always felt a sense of community and closeness with everyone. Although no school district can be perfect, I think Arlington comes the closest compared to other school districts in our area. Go Eagles!

I moved to the Arlington community in the middle of my 7th grade year. I have to give it to Arlington about their welcoming committee. The students made me feel like I have lived in that area my whole life and the teachers helped me a lot to understand where they were at in the courses. I had a little trouble towards the end of my 8th grade year but it got resolved pretty quick. I am in my senior year of high school now and I have never had any problems with bullying or anything. Overall, I think Arlington has pretty good public schools.
This is an excellent school due to the engaged teachers, challenging subjects, and its amazing ability to push even the most introverted people out of their shells and into society with a vast selection of AP/IB courses, sports, and clubs. After being here for only four years in high the school, the positive environment helped me feel like I had been living among my piers for my entire life. I entirely recommend APS for anyone who truly wants to get the best possible high school experience.
