Senior: Overall, it's fairly clear why Arlington is one of the top counties in the USA. With its ever-growing population, schools are being built and renovated relatively often, allowing for many aesthetically pleasing and functional buildings. Similarly, the facilities and resources are effective and good-quality more often than not. And, although this is, of course, a generalization, the teachers tend to show enthusiasm for their subjects, care for their students, and dedication. Really, the main criticisms I have for the county are very personal. My main concern is that competitive arts are often placed lower than competitive sports when it comes to attention and prioritization. This causes arts programs, such as marching band, to struggle to find practice spaces and funding, which ends up negatively impacting the groups' performance. The other somewhat lacking aspect is the handling, or lack thereof, of bullying and other similar inter-student problems that arise.
