About Arlington Community Schools

Situated in Arlington, Tennessee and just 30 miles from downtown Memphis, ACS is home to four campuses, including two elementary schools, one middle school and one high school. Come join our nearly 4,800 Pre-K through 12th students and see why we’re an academic destination for so many families.

ACS cares about developing students for their future, not our present. That’s why we’re prioritizing STEAM Learning (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics), pushing ourselves to be among the Best Communities for Music Education®, giving our students many ways to get involved, and building a certified Top Workplace® culture for our employees. ACS is big enough to be a place for everyone but thrives on that small-town charm.

Campus Life

At Arlington Community Schools, each campus carries its own identity and traditions that make it unique and engaging for students. All of our schools are located within the Town of Arlington, so no matter the number of children you have and their ages, take comfort in knowing that all ACS schools are within minutes of each other and offer a caring and creative atmosphere.

Portrait of an ACS Graduate

The Portrait of an ACS Graduate is our vision for students and what they will need to succeed in college, career and life by identifying 21st century skills, character traits and social/emotional competencies. Our strategic plan committee spent more than eight months researching and conducting listening sessions to develop the Portrait.
