Rep. Kustoff visits AHSARLINGTON, Tenn. (Arlington Community Schools) – U.S. Congressman David Kustoff visited Arlington High School on Monday to shadow Principal Chris Duncan as part of the National Principal Shadowing Week.

Rep. Kustoff, congressman for Tennessee’s 8th Congressional District, first met with Principal Duncan to talk about the latest in education and how schools have adapted over time to meet the needs of students. He then toured several classrooms, meeting with teachers and speaking to students about the importance of voting and making the best of educational opportunities.

“I am really impressed with Arlington High School, from the administration to the teachers to the students,” Kustoff said. “It’s a first-class, well-run school system, and the children are just getting a terrific education in Arlington.”

Rep. Kustoff specifically pointed to the STEM IV class he visited for placing an emphasis on hands-on, interactive and challenging learning opportunities.

“Some of the work I’ve seen today is absolutely amazing,” he continued. “Schools weren’t doing this 5, 10 years ago. Schools today need to be teaching and training the students for the jobs of tomorrow, and it’s apparent Arlington is doing that.”
