About our school

Principal Rosalind Gaines-Harrell posing with a family.At Arbor Hill, we pride ourselves on providing a nurturing education for all of our students. Our philosophy is that we educate “the whole child.” 

Our school is filled with leaders in the making. Student voice is our focus and your children will excel at it through our monthly assemblies, Mindful Moment Meditations, and Student Government. Students also track their own attendance and academic and social-emotional well being. Our students love to share what they excel at, and the goals that they are working towards.

We have an extensive campus that is more than an acre in size, so students have opportunities to watch nature in real time. Our indoor garden is home to beautiful live plants and  a pond that is the habitat for our multiple turtles.

Our school community is like a family filled with dedicated students, staff, parents and partners. We all work in unison to help our students achieve greatness.
