Our school has approximately 440 students, organized into four different teams. Our school is grounded in middle school philosophy which emphasizes the unique needs and learning opportunities of early adolescents to approach our education with open hearts, open minds, and open ARMS.

  • Be engaged and curious learners
  • Be collaborative and creative problem solvers
  • Value diverse perspectives

A Word

From Our Superintendent

The mission of our district is to support our talented students in every step of their educational journey, from Pre-K to graduation, and to help them become successful, contributing members of our multicultural society. We challenge students to strive toward the outer edge of their skill level, while still maintaining a whole-child approach that supports their creativity and social skills development. ARPS teachers are experts in their field who are deeply knowledgeable about their content, but their dedication to students is what draws families to our schools.
ARPS students are incredibly academically successful, and we are extremely proud of that success; however, we have just as much pride in our students’ cultural and social growth. ARPS has a very diverse student body, with more than 40 native languages spoken. As a community, we honor all of our students’ heritages with an unwavering commitment to equity and social justice. Those commitments, along with our unique demographics, ensure that ARPS students learn as much from each other as they do from the formal curriculum.
I am honored to serve the ARPS community as we work together to help our students reach their goals and realize their full potential. Welcome to ARPS!

– Dr. Michael Morris
