Student Policy Handbook

The full attendance policy (Sect. C) as well as other official AHS rules and guidelines are published in the Student Policy Handbook.

Dear Students and Parents,
We would like to welcome all new and returning students and parents as we prepare for the new school year. Our school is divided into three houses, Downs, Collomb and Fusco. House and dean assignments are determined by student last name:

The Deans are here to support the academic, social, and emotional well-being of our students throughout their entire time at Arlington High School. Our Deans work hard to build positive relationships with our students. Deans monitor student attendance, collaborate with students and teachers to solve problems, and uphold policies in our student handbook to ensure a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment for all learners.
