Principal's Letter


Welcome to Arlington Traditional Elementary School!

The staff and I extend a warm welcome to you and your family! All of us at Arlington Traditional School are proud of our school and the wonderful learning experiences we offer to children. Our focus is the ABCs of SuccessAcademics, Behavior, and Character (trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship). All who walk through our doors are asked to bring a BIG smile and a GOOD attitude. This year we are celebrating our 36th year as a traditional school.

The following tenets established in 1978 continue to guide us:
  • Teacher-guided instruction in self-contained classrooms
  • Emphasis on basic education in the academic areas
  • Regular homework assigned at all grade levels with parent monitoring
  • Written weekly summary of student progress communicated to parents
  • Promotion based on grade level mastery
  • Consistent behavior, dress, and grooming standards
  • Weekly assembly programs reinforce philosophy and build community
We invite you to become an active member of the Arlington Traditional School family. We look forward to working with you and your children to make this the happiest and most productive school year ever!
