A bigger picture...
Arbor Heights is an elementary school (k-5) in the Seattle Public School District.
We have approximately 425 students. We have both regular graded classrooms
as well as some multi-age and split classrooms. Arbor Heights is located
in an area of Seattle called West Seattle - just a short distance away
from beautiful Puget Sound.
Technology is an important part of our school and the education of our
students. Our school has a T-1 Internet connection. During the 1997 - 1998
school year we expanded the LAN in our computer lab (see
NetDay at Arbor Heights)
to our fourth and fifth grade classrooms as well as to our Library and
four other classrooms. During the summer of 1999, the LAN was extended to
all our classrooms. In the summer of 2001 our building was
completely rewired. We are exclusively a PC (Windows) school.
A number of staff have computers
at home and Internet accounts with the Seattle School District. Visitors
can see a fully functioning sample of our "Welcome to the
Internet" start page on our LAN.
Arbor Heights has several staff trained as bilingual teachers who serve
our diverse ethnic population, offering service to Spanish-speaking and
school is also a partner with the Bon Marche - a regional retail store.
Pen pal exchanges with employees encourage writing skills and promote
positive relationships with caring adults from our community. The Bon
Marche also helped finance the expansion of our computer
June each student at Arbor Heights publishes a book and shares this with
other students and adults in an event called the Young Authors' Conference. We also
have our own student newspaper published each month,
available online at this web
parents at our school are a very active and integral part of the education
process at Arbor Heights. The PTSA is a well
organized group which benefits the school with proceeds from numerous
fund-raisers. Parent volunteers are plentiful, and their contributions
include tutoring, fund raising, driving on field trips, grounds
maintenance/beautification projects, and more.
