About Arbor Hill Elementary School

Built in 1973, Arbor Hill Elementary School is located on Arbor Drive, across the street from Whitney M. Young Jr. Health Center. A two-year project to renovate the building  was completed in September 2010 and students and families returned to Arbor Hill Elementary School's familiar 1 Arbor Drive home!

 

At the new Arbor Hill Elementary, students learn in a modernized facility with new computers in every classroom, walls and doors surrounding every classroom (as opposed to the school's former open-classroom layout), new computer and science labs, a restored indoor atrium and a new heating and cooling system.

 

Anti-bullying efforts at Arbor Hill -- Let's complete the puzzle together

We invite you to visit Arbor Hill Elementary School's anti-bullying website.

 

Bullying hurts people, and at Arbor Hill Elementary we continue working toward making our school a better place. Our interactive website for students, parents and teachers will help everyone in our school community to understand the painful scars that are caused by bullies as well as what we all can do to stop it. Let’s complete the puzzle together!
