Arlington Reviews

I went to school at Arlington High School and it was a great experience. The staff was there when I needed them. The career center did a great job with connecting me to scholarships and summer jobs/programs that I qualified for. They really wanted me to succeed and further my education.

The neighborhood I live in is Smokey Point, an area that was once with only a few thousand people. Today, with remodeling homes, buildings, and creating jobs, this city's population has increased dramatically and yes, we have a lot of traffic like any other busy city!

Overall, everything is close by if living in the Smokey Point area. Costco, Walmart, local parks, TwinLakes presents all in one living in an area that is peaceful and accommodates simple needs. I recommend to anyone seeking a placid atmosphere, yet busy enough to present all the needs possible.

Arlington is a great community when involving community and education aspects. Due to the continued growth of the community as a whole, there has been an increasing amount of traffic and inconvenient travel. Although there is only a limited amount of diversity, Arlington doesn't discriminate against different individuals or specific groups of people or organizations. The education is above par and the Arlington School District is determined to keep their students safe and give all students the best opportunities to be successful in their futures.
Arlington has grown a lot since I moved here 20 years ago but does still have a small town feel. I love that about Arlington and it’s sense of community.
One thing that has changed since I moved to Arlington is the amount of homelessness in our community. The number of homeless people is continually growing and not much being done to change that. Something needs to be done about the drug addiction leading to homelessness, The uprise in crime, and the safety of those who are contributing to society.
