Schools are present in Arlington. A school is a center of learning and education. It imparts both curriculum based teaching as well as instruction in one or more extra curricular activities. Schools are also categorized based on the maximum grade they teach- such as elementary schools, middle schools and high schools. Such institutions can be either run by the government (public schools), or be privately funded (such as missionary schools). Some schools also have a component of faith based instruction, such as Christian schools. Quality education at affordable costs is of primary importance. A good school produces well-rounded, mature students who are able to cope with the challenges of dealing with the world.
