Transfer to Arlington ISD and transform their future
Posted in on November 17, 2022

Application deadline is Dec. 1

Opportunities to set students up on a path to success don’t come up often, so it’s important to act fast when they do. And now is the time.

For a limited time, the Arlington ISD is giving parents a chance to transfer their kids to a district that will transform their future. Applications to transfer are available from Nov. 17 to Dec. 1, 2022. And the good news is – you don’t even have to live in Arlington or be zoned to the Arlington ISD. The district is “open,” meaning that any student can take advantage of the unlimited opportunities they have for success no matter their path.

Here are four big reasons to transfer today:


STEM starts in pre-K for all four-year-olds as the Arlington ISD is the first in the state to create a district-wide STEM curriculum for its littlest learners. And pre-K is FREE for all four-year-olds. Thanks to the 2014 bond voters, kids at all 53 elementary schools have access to two fully equipped STEM labs, and 2019 bond voters approved two age-appropriate ADA-accessible playgrounds at every elementary school. 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 ten campuses. Did you know that includes both tennis and wrestling? And in those sports, the junior high students are taught by varsity head coaches. If your child loves the water, they will be amazed by the new state-of-the-art natatorium featuring an Olympic-sized pool and a new athletics arena located in the heart of Arlington’s entertainment district. In February, more than 40 Arlington ISD student-athletes participated in National Signing Day, earning nearly $2 million in scholarships.


The Arlington ISD is open for everyone, but to take full advantage of our specialized programs you must transfer before ninth grade. That’s because the eighth grade is when students apply for one of two early college high schools or the STEM Academy at Martin High School. The district also has four P-TECH programs where students can earn up to 60 hours of free college credit and get workplace certifications in health sciences, business administration, logistics, engineering, cybersecurity, manufacturing and computer-aided design and drafting. And it’s all free. Ninth graders also start taking classes that can help lead to jobs through programs at our Dan Dipert Career & Technical Center.


The Arlington ISD is a high-tech, forward-thinking school district 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, an unmatched facility in the area. That’s why we’re building new schools, updating every campus and providing our students with the best opportunities. The opportunity to transfer your student to Arlington ISD is now.

Take the first step starting November 17. Transfer to the Arlington ISD and transform your child’s future.
