Upper Arlington is a small and safe town that is a suburb of Columbus, OH. It has given me an extraordinary base of education and core values that are second to none. Upper Arlington High School has a vast variety of opportunities to explore from varsity athletics, shop classes, school magazine/yearbooks, to a world-class concert orchestra and drama club. All of these opportunities have been a starting point for notable alumni Beverly D'Angelo – Actress, George Smoot - Nobel Prize Winner, Erin Moriarty - News correspondent for 48 Hours, and all-time great golfer Jack Nicklaus. Upper Arlington is a town that gives you opportunities to succeed in any path you choose.

I like how beautiful, safe, and clean Upper Arlington is. Columbus has numerous amounts of diverse groups when it comes to financial income. Upper Arlington is definitely a wealthier city that provides families a great opportunity through good schooling and educations, to start a raise a family.
Upper Arlington is a very safe community with superb educational systems. There is definitely a lack of economic variety and racial diversity which often results in the community to be referred to as a "bubble" by other neighboring communities. Overall, Upper Arlington is a great community for raising a family with a quiet, suburban lifestyle.
