Lots of reasons to transfer to Arlington ISD

The Arlington ISD has a special transfer window open until Thursday, July 18.

While the window is open, students from outside the district can transfer in for the 2024-2025 school year, and students already in Arlington ISD can apply for a transfer to another school.

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.

Learn more about transferring to – or within – Arlington ISD at And if you have any questions, email or call (682) 867-7217.

In Arlington ISD, we have opportunities for every child. If you need reasons why the Arlington ISD is right for you, here are just a few:


STEM starts in pre-K 4! 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 has two new age-appropriate playgrounds that are ADA-accessible. And if fine arts are what you want, that starts in elementary, 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, too? And in those sports, the junior high students are taught by varsity head coaches. If you’re looking for the best facilities for your child, the district opened a state-of-the-art natatorium in 2021 and a new arena as part of an Athletics Center that is located in the heart of Arlington’s entertainment district. At our National Signing Day celebration, more than 100 of our student athletes participated in National Signing Day earning more than $6 million in 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 one of our two early college high schools, our four P-TECH programs or the STEM Academy at Martin High School. Ninth graders at all high schools also start taking classes that can help lead to jobs through programs at our state-of-the-art Dan Dipert Career & Technical Center.


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

Why wait? Transfer to the Arlington ISD!
