Advantage: Top-notch facilities

If you’ve driven by an Arlington ISD elementary school you may have noticed a spiffy new playground. Make that two. Every Arlington ISD elementary school either has or is in line to get two new playgrounds that are grade-level appropriate and include shade structures, accessible playground equipment and rubber surfaces.

If you head toward the entertainment district, you’ll see our state-of-the-art Center for Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA), which is where our students take classes and participate in performances. Right next to that is our new athletics complex that includes an Olympic-sized natatorium. That’s the same natatorium where all Arlington ISD third graders have a chance to take a water safety class during the school year.   

Advantage: Academies for all

In addition to traditional campuses, the Arlington ISD offers 11 specialized programs to cater to a variety of student interests. The Arlington ISD has five elementary academies that focus on STEM, fine arts & dual language, world language and leadership. Students can continue the fine arts & dual language track in junior high, too.

The Arlington ISD has two early college high schools where students can earn up to 60 hours of free college credit and get workplace certifications. There are also two P-TECH campuses in our high schools that allow students to get college credit and work toward careers in business, cybersecurity and the medical field. If that wasn’t enough, there’s a STEM academy for high school students, too.

Advantage: The finest of arts

That comes from offering fine arts for students Arlington ISD Advantage has the finest of the fine artsstarting in elementary school and continuing through high school. Not to brag, but Maren Morris got her start in the Arlington ISD. So did members of Pentatonix.

 The Arlington ISD also provides instruments and band uniforms for students at no cost. And, if your child is more into visual arts, they’ll have a chance to have their art displayed at AT&T Stadium as the Arlington ISD partners with the Gene and Jerry Jones Family Arlington Youth Foundation. That opportunity allows our fifth and eighth-graders to tour the art exhibit at the stadium as well as display their work. 

Advantage: Athletics, too

Athletics in the Arlington ISD start in junior high. And students in sports like volleyball and tennis get to work with high school coaches starting in the seventh grade. Once student-athletes reach high school, they’ll compete at either five 6A schools or Seguin High School, which competes in 5A.
