Transfer to Arlington ISD
Arlington ISD is opening a special transfer window tomorrow, July 12, through Thursday, August 4.
While the window is open, students from outside the district can transfer in for the 2022-2023 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.
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 EARLY
STEM now 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 is getting two new age-appropriate playgrounds that will be 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 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, earning nearly $2 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 in before high school. That’s because the eighth grade is when students apply for one of our four early college high schools 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.
ACADEMIES FOR ALL
While every one of our campuses provides outstanding opportunities for everyone, the Arlington ISD also has five specialized elementary school programs and four 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.
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 a variety of 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?
