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.

Building opens 8:30 a.m.
Breakfast  8:30 a.m.
School begins 9:05 a.m.
School ends 3:35 p.m.

Arbor Hill is a Community School, which functions as neighborhood centers providing additional support and services to students and families during and beyond the regular school day. For more information on services and programs we offer, please contact:
