Attendance at a School Information Session is not required but is highly recommended. These information sessions enable parents or guardians to visit the neighborhood school and the requested school, meet the principals, see the schools “in action” and get a general sense of the personalities of each of the schools. Individual tours are not available.
Arlington Traditional School is located at 855 N. Edison Street, near the intersection of George Mason Drive and Wilson Boulevard behind McDonald’s. Enter the school through the main entrance on Edison Street. All other doors will be locked for security purposes. The information session begins promptly at the start time.
