    My son has been attending Arlington Heights for two years. The teachers are dedicated involved and caring. The principal and administration do a good job with parent involvement discipline and coordinating. My son has flourished in his reading and writing abilities. We work at home with him help with homework (especially w/ math) and reading 20 mins a day but his progress would not be possible without the help and support of his awesome teachers. I am so grateful!

    This school is great. My children are doing realy good and thats because I work with the teacher to help my children. Please don't blame the school because it takes three to make a good student. The parent the teacher and the student himself.

    This school is overpopulated around the school is terrible with excessive peddlers right outside the school grounds selling junk food Too many students in the class rooms. Not enough time for one on one.

    Arlington Heights Elementary School is the most unruly school that I have ever substituted at. I never wish to teach there again. Teacher support ranks lower than zero.

    This is my daughters first year at Arlington Heights and so far I really like there academic program. I'm not happy with the fact that the school does not provide any extracurricular activities.

    Arlington Heights Elementary school does not offer a quality music or art programs. The school does not have a strong parent base and their are not a lot of extracurricular activities available. If you are okay with the basics of what the public schools systems have to offer then arlington heights is a typical public elementary school.

    The administration works very hard but the population changes every day with new students entering on a daily basis. The basic program is there but there is a high turn over of teachers there. Many teachers call in sick or quit unexpectedly.

    This is an excellent school with caring teachers and staff. My child is in the 5th grade and has been on the honor roll since he began attendance here. I strongly support this school and recommend any parent to send their child here.
