We are thrilled to see the percentage of Arab High School graduates in need of remedial courses decrease. We strive to equip our students for whatever path they choose to take after high school. Our goal, from kindergarten through 12th grade, is to grow our students to their full potential so they leave us as confident leaders who will be successful in college, work, and the world.
We are so thankful for our teachers, faculty, staff, and administrators who are passionate about preparing our students for a successful future. We also appreciate the level of support from parents and our community. Their support is truly a blessing! Lastly, we are thankful for our amazing students who rise to any challenge, embrace high expectations, and make us proud every day.
