Welcome to Arlington High School

Arlington High School has received many top honors for its educational program.  However, the facilities limit the ability to deliver a 21st century education:

  • Current building cannot accommodate anticipated enrollment
  • >30% of classrooms are inadequate, including science labs
  • School received ‘Warning’ accreditation status from NEASC
  • Building infrastructure has a critical need for modernization

The Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) has invited Arlington High School into their program to rebuild or renovate the building.  Learn more about why this project is important.

  • HMFH Architects will present more details about the four design options
  • MSBA process and decisions to-date will be reviewed
  • The Building Committee will outline criteria for choosing the preferred design
  • Feedback will be gathered for future Building Committee decisions

On April 10, the AHS Building Committee selected four preliminary concepts to explore further: two renovation/addition options and two all new construction options..  Read more about this decision.
