Since the 2003 school year, Arcadia H.S. has met No Child Left Behind standards, and is labeled "Excelling" by AZ LEARNS, Arizona's standards measurement. In 2005, the school produced three National Merit Semi-Finalists. 92% of students of the graduating class of 2005 continued their education, and in 2003 students were awarded a combined $3.5 million in scholarship money. Notable alumni include NASA astronaut Bill Shepherd (class of '67), and though he did not graduate from the school, director Steven Spielberg attended.
The Orcutt/Winslow Partnership created the new design of the school. The construction is set to take place in three stages over three years by the contractor DL Withers Construction. The price for the school's improvement is set at $127 by a Guaranteed Maximum Price plan.
