“Coming to Arlington Careers was the best decision I’ve ever made. I’ve learned so much and did something I thought would be impossible. The teachers (Mrs.Sandra and Ms.Martinez) are such amazing teachers if you are struggling they won’t leave you hanging. They’ll continue to help you until you finally get it. Also Ms.Candice and Ms.Sharp are always there when you need someone to talk to, they genuinely care about each and every student that walks through their office. This school is worth going to.”
