Wednesday is a big day in the Arlington ISD. It’s the day that students can transfer into the Arlington ISD and set themselves up for a future of success.
If you need reasons why the Arlington ISD is right for you, we’ve got you covered with opportunities for every student.
Go ahead and start the transfer process here, and remember that the window for transferring opens at 9 a.m. on July 7 and closes at 11:59 p.m. on July 21. And it’s first come, first served, so act fast!
STEM STARTS EARLY
In the Arlington ISD, every elementary school has two STEM labs that help open up students to outstanding opportunities. And thanks to the 2019 Bond, each elementary school will also have two age-appropriate playgrounds that will be ADA-accessible. And if fine arts are what you want, that starts in elementary school, too, as every school has a strings room, and instruments are provided free of charge for all students.
Sports begin in junior high in the Arlington ISD at our 10 campuses. Did you know that includes both tennis and wrestling? And in those sports the junior high students are taught by varsity head coaches. And if you’re looking for the best facilities for your child, the district opened a state-of-the-art natatorium last fall and a new arena as part of an athletics center that is located in the heart of Arlington’s entertainment district. In February, more than 70 of our student athletes participated in National Signing Day, earning nearly $5 million in scholarships.
JUNIOR HIGH IS KEY
The Arlington ISD is open for everyone, but to take full advantage of our specialized programs you must transfer before high school. That’s because eighth grade is when students apply for our three early college high schools as well as our STEM Academy at Martin High School. Ninth graders also start taking classes that can help lead to jobs through programs at our Dan Dipert Career & Technical Center. If the opportunity for up to 60 hours of free college credit or a chance to go to our new school with a focus on medical careers at Bowie High School is right for you, then you have to get here before high school.
ACADEMIES FOR ALL
While every one of our campuses provides outstanding opportunities for everyone, the Arlington ISD also has five specialized elementary school programs that focus on everything from STEM to leadership and four high school opportunities. We’re also in the process of opening our first fine arts/dual language junior high to build on the two dual language/fine arts elementary schools we already have.
COMMUNITY SUPPORT, TOO
The Arlington ISD you transfer into now is ever changing thanks to a community that passed a $966 million bond in 2019. That’s building on our 2014 Bond, which is why we have the Dan Dipert Career & Technical Center that puts students on paths to success. That’s why we have the new Center for Visual and Performing Arts, a facility that is unmatched in the area. That’s why we’re building new schools, updating every campus and providing our students the best opportunities. Why wouldn’t you want to come to a district that has that kind of backing?
To take advantage of all of that and more, you have to take the first step by July 21 to transfer to the Arlington ISD and transform your future.
