About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Arlington Classics Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Arlington Classics Academy Reviews
ACA was once a top tier school that instilled the tools needed to excel in academics. The Arkansas campus is still following the vision and values of ACA, but the Bowen campus has strayed to the point that a public school education would be a major leap upwards. There is no sense of pride in the direction of this school, especially within those parents/students that have been at ACA for a number of years, and had experienced a higher level of education. In my opinion, this school is in desperate need of new leadership.
