I have two kids here, and I can't imagine them being anywhere else. My son excels in Math and Science and is well above his reading level. I use to think that they give the kids too much homework, but now am very grateful for how much they push because my son is challenged and it will only benefit him ...  Read more

Arlington is a great school and the management truly cares about its students. The teachers are wonderful and caring about all students. As a stay at home mom, I am at the school more than most, I see just how much everyone from the principal on down cares.

Principal is not in it for the children, test scores are plunging. Special Ed teachers have been pulled from this school due to poor teaching skills and no patience for special needs kids. Many wonderful devoted teachers, but being led by a leader who is only concerned with self achievement and recognition. ...  Read more

My grandniece attends Arlington in the special education classes. Her teacher Ms. Crossley and the rest of the staff are wonderful. Even though it takes her longer to learn something, the staff has given her the confidence to try and to learn -- very important.

I am very pleased with Arlington Elementary! My daughter, who is now in 8th grade and doing very well, had gotten an excellent start at this school. My son, who is a 5th grader, is also getting a lot out of Arlington. The teachers are wonderful and do a great job of upholding the quality of academics. ...  Read more

Both my children enjoy going to school each day. As a parent getting a child to 'enjoy' school can be tough. Arlington's teachers are great, both my kids excel in reading & math, it is the responsibility of parents to continue the study outside of the classroom not to simply rely on teachers to do all ...  Read more
