Arlington School

  • The Arlington School provides an individualized education experience to a wide variety of students.
  • While there is no one "type" of student at The Arlington School, many of our students come here because, in one way or another, their needs were not met at a larger public or private school because of our small size, it is possible to address the many issues that middle school and high school students normally face.
  • Problems which are usually ignored in a traditional educational system.
  • At The Arlington School we recognize that there is more to learning than what occurs in the classroom.
  • In fact, a student's entire life affects his/her education. We believe that providing the best education possible means more than just teaching subjects.
