Arlington School District Reviews

Very welcoming environment. Very inclusive of everyone and clubs provided for anyone. Pep assemblies get students involved and student body is encouraged to participate in extracurriculars and attend events outside of the regular school day. I would like to see more funding and attention put on other activities rather than just the main sports like football and wrestling. The cheerleaders spend countless hours supporting various sports teams yet the school provides little to no funds at all for them. The campus is great however I think it is getting too small for the amount of students there. It could use an add on to one of the hallways. Overall a very nice and clean school.

Arlington School District is very competitive. Some students take eight classes which are all AP and IB. AP and IB classes are encouraged by all teachers, even if students aren't ready for those type of classes. Administrators and staff force this onto students to convince them that they'll get into ivy league colleges and to have a higher GPA. AP and IB classes are used for college-readiness. It helps students get used to being fast paced. There are a lot of after school activities that students can sign up for, which allows them to interact with the school. Schools are very clean, thanks to the janitors that help the schools. There is a lot of diversity, but not a lot of culture to see. There are cultural assemblies, but they don't show or make students learn about cultures. The cafeteria lunch is pretty good. There are salad bars and sometimes taco bars. The school tries to maintain a healthy diet for the kids. Students should have some type of protein and vegetables for lunch.
Overall, I have enjoyed my time in the Arlington School District. The community is involved and as a whole, it feels as though Arlington is a family. I value relationships I have formed with teachers and peers. Most of the time, the staff and students of Arlington make me feel welcomed. The only thing I wish I could improve is the atmosphere of the student body. The diversity of the students is great but sometimes hinders us from connecting with one another. I want all Arlington students to respect and care for one another.
