The Arlington ISD has a population of more than 61,000 students – and we’re dedicated to every single one of them. With a highly engaged faculty and an array of learning opportunities that foster each student’s unique interests and talents, our goal is to have 100 percent of AISD students graduate exceptionally prepared for college, career and citizenship. We combine the strength of a large school district with innovative approaches and focused support to help students articulate and achieve their dreams. The AISD...where potential gets real!
