transfer window for Arlington ISD
Posted in , on March 7, 2022

It’s time to circle your calendars for Tuesday, March 29, at 9 a.m.

That’s the day that students can transfer in Arlington ISD for the 2022-23 school year and set themselves up for a future of success.

This special transfer window is when students are considered on a first-come, first-served basis where space is available. An exception to this is a sibling transfer to a specialized program.

Students can transfer from outside the district for the 2022-23 school year during this time or apply for a transfer from another Arlington ISD campus. The window closes at 11:59 p.m. on April 14. You can find out all the details on the transfer process here.

If you need reasons why the Arlington ISD is right for you, we’ve got you covered with opportunities for every student.


In the Arlington ISD, every elementary school has two STEM labs that help open up students to outstanding opportunities. And for the 2022-23 school year, STEM begins in pre-K 4. 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 40 of our student-athletes participated in National Signing Day (video), earning nearly $2 million in athletic scholarships.


The Arlington ISD is open for everyone, but to take full advantage of our specialized programs you must transfer in before high school. That’s because the eighth grade is when students apply for our four early college high school programs 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.


While every one of our campuses provides outstanding opportunities, the Arlington ISD also has five specialized elementary school academies that focus on everything from STEM to leadership, plus four high school opportunities. We also have a fine arts/dual language junior high school to build on the two dual language/fine arts elementary schools we already have.


The Arlington ISD 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 starting March 29 to transfer to the Arlington ISD and transform your future.
