Great school! Sent all my 4 kids here and they all got really great teachers! Wish there was more parent involvement. It seems about 50 or so parents do everything there. It would be great if we had more volunteers.

This is our fourth year at Arnold school and so far we are very pleased with quality of teachers here. Principle Tasker and counselor Michelle Kaliper have been superb in providing open dialogue for our girls and their services has been exemplary. We are very pleased with their efforts.

This school is all about Green Ligh/ Blue Light /Pink Light and Red Lights. I feel as if teachers get paid extra for giving all these lights to kids rather than being an influencer and being a role model for the kids. Teachers need to learn a basic thing that when you point a finger at a kid, there ...  Read more

Our recent experience with this school has been very disappointing & disheartening.

My son is going on his third year at Arnold and I have no major complaints. He struggled a bit in the first grade and his teacher was very helpful in helping me help him focus and to grasp the concepts of the cirriculum. They do offer a few after school activities--my son is a regular at the drawing ...  Read more

Our family's experience with Arnold has been disappointing. The administration and staff model intolerance and unacceptance, with few exceptions. The departure of Principal Goolesbey coincided with the departure of professionalism, principles and began our family's search for an adequate learning environment.

I have 4 kids attending Arnold Elementary and I couldn't be happier. The teachers are well qualified and they care a lot about the students and the school. I, along with many other parents, help out in the classrooms and I am always amazed at how many different subjects are taught throughout the day ...  Read more

Both my boys attend Arnold. We have always been pleased with the teachers and the principal. Both of them are challenged academically and are very happy there. My only complaint would be with parent involvement. Very few parents volunteer for PTA. The same few parents do ALL the work. Many parents ...  Read more
