As a freshman in this school, I`m loving the experience so far. The students and teachers have a lot of school spirit, and the range of fine arts and sports is very wide. I`ve read some reviews with many complaints about the school, like the 2-star rater below, but I have to disagree with them. If you`re an artist, a jock, a musician, a dramatist, or anything else, then this school will meet, or even exceed, your standards.

Honestly I loved Arlington and all 4 of my years there were so much fun. There is a place for everyone. If you're sporty, theatrical, musical, or just plain weird, there is a place for you. Students have lots of school spirit. Most of the teachers are great but every school has their duds. My friend transferred from Arlington to Bartlett because of rezoning, and was shocked at how bad their academics and building are. Honestly, whoever wrote the other review on here was probably a strange, overinvolved parent. Arlington is a great school and I think 95% of the students would agree.

If you want your child to be bullied and stigmatized by the faculty, this is the perfect school for your family. The faculty worries more about discipline and suspending the students, I'm not sure how the kids learn anything. Seriously, the treatment of some of the students borders on harassment. Want your chd to go to college? Good luck. The guidance counselors idea of helping your child is by telling them which website they should apply for financial aid on. That's it. We moved from Bartlett to Arlington and the schools are day and night. If you think Arlington schools are the right schools for your family, I'd advise you to think twice. Awful awful schools.
