All aboard Arbor Station Elementary School!

Arbor Station Elementary School is having great year.  Our theme this year is "All Aboard at Arbor Station".  Arbor Station is a happy, child-centered school with high expectations.  Our mission is to facilitate optimal learning in a secure and nurturing environment, empowering students to become responsible and productive citizens. 

Our CCRPI, College and Career Ready Performance Index, score has seen growth over the last three years.  In 2014, we earned a CCRPI score of 74.5.  The following year our score increased to 86.6.  In 2016, our score increased again to 87.6. 

Many students participated in new clubs offered by faculty and staff.  These include the Science and Engineering Club and the Ford's Theater Oratory Group.  There are several new clubs for the 2016-17 school year:  dance club, yearbook staff, drama club and a video news program. 

This year the staff and faculty at Arbor Station are focusing on increasing students’ reading and writing endurance.  We are concentrating on reading authentic text and writing about what was read.  Our mid-year data shows we are on track for continued academic success. 

I hope you will join with us on our train to success for our children. All aboard!
