2018 National Blue Ribbon Award

Arab Elementary School is honored to have been named a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School by the US Department of Education. 


The heartbeat of Arab Elementary School (AES) is a compelling culture in which the best interests of students guide every decision, students and teachers are family, and student learning comes first. We believe in a strong family partnership and encourage families to be engaged in all aspects of their students' educational experiences.


Our top priority at AES is to create a risk-free, safe learning environment, and a fair classroom culture that is conducive to learning and encourages respect for all. Our students are immersed in rich, engaging activities daily. Students collaborate to solve problems and stimulate deep thinking skills. Our students understand that problem solving is a necessary skill in our society. They know that we have high expectations for their academic and social growth.


Just as we have high expectations of our students, we also have high expectations of our faculty and staff. AES has a history of academic success. That can be attributed to the work ethic and dedication of our faculty and staff. It is evident that our teachers care about each other and our students. We are truly a family at AES. The faculty and staff are committed to the success of all students through a strong network of support to equip every child to graduate being prepared for college, career, and productive citizenship in the 21st century.


All stakeholders are considered an integral part of our AES team as we work together to invest in others, serve our community, and seek growth.
