I am so happy and proud to be teaching at this school. The kids here are really good kids and they are willing to learn. Our school is not perfect, but it is better than MANY schools I've taught at in Dallas and Houston ISD. It was mentioned by a parent that the schools play ground was burned down. This is true, but by someone in the neighborhood, not by one of our kids who appreciates and care for our school. We are ranked in the stop 40 out of 151 elementary schools in DISD and also have good STAAR scores with many of our kids going on to magnet schools. (check out our 2013-2014 5th grade scores) We offer after school tutoring and enrichment programs such as Art, Physical ED, Drum Line and Recorder band that participates in many community activities. We also have a very active and well attended PTA that benefits our school as well. For the parent(s) that felt that Arcadia Park was not for their child, GODSPEED TO YOU and we wish you and your child well, never the less we will continue to keep our school as one of THE BEST Elementary Schools in West Dallas.
