Arlington High School is a comprehensive public high school located in Indianapolis, Indiana.
In 2004, Arlington High School implemented a small school initiative: Traditional departments were done away with and five small schools, or schools within the school were created. Each school has its own academic dean, or principal, and the previous principal became the campus administrator. This district-pushed initiative was meant to improve student success.
In 2015 the school was returned to the control of IPS after being run by Tindley Accelerated Schools for three years. During the early parts of the year the school was faced with many challeneges including drugs, vandalism, and violence. After Principal Law requested, and was granted, additional administrative staff from the district, the school began to see a turnaround. By the end of the year academic performance had increased and disciplinary problems had decreased.
The school's athletic teams are named the Golden Knights.
