Student Experiences

Arlington Heights Elementary is a student-centered school where the goal is to provide students with unique learning opportunities. Student of the Month and Staff of the Month awards are presented once a month during morning assemblies. Students partake in Good Behavior Celebrations. Our school hosts extracurricular clubs after school for four to six consecutive Mondays. Clubs are free to students and have included Legos, art, music, basketball, disc golf, soccer, crafts, STEM, cheerleading, coding, and food art to name a few. Our beautiful school grounds include a quarter- mile fitness track, two playgrounds, a basketball court, a nine-hole disc golf course, a soccer field, a gaga pit, a large shelter house, a garden, and numerous trees.

College Mentors for Kids’ innovative mentoring program brings Arlington students to the Indiana University campus for fun, hands- on activities and connects them to college student mentors. College student mentors help kids believe in a brighter future. Arlington Heights Elementary also partners with the Kiwanis Club of Bloomington to create the Kiwanis Closet. The Kiwanis Closet provides daily necessities to students in need. It is filled with many items such as non-perishable food, clothing, toiletries, and school supplies. All these items are donated by Kiwanis. Taught in partnership with the YMCA, Energize is an in-school program that strives to prevent childhood obesity by providing lessons on healthy eating choices and exercise.

Arlington Heights is unique! It is a small school, but it is fun on the inside!
