City of Arlington ranked as a top 10 neighborhood


In their article from September 5, 2014, The Puget Sound Business Journal ranked Arlington as #4 in their "Top 10 Neighborhoods Ranked by School Performance".

The Puget Sound Business Journal is an online news source reporting the latest breaking business news, as well as a selection of the week's top stories from their print edition.

When determining the list, author Emily Parkhurst looked at the school achievement index scores for each school, which are provided by the State Board of Education every year.

These rankings look at student test scores, graduation rates, and other factors to examine the progress and standings of schools across the state, as well as help identify schools that are either struggling or excelling.

The top-ranked school listed for the Arlington School District was Kent Prairie Elementary School, with a state achievement index score of 9.161.

Arlington High School was also honored as a high-ranking school in the district, with a score of 7.093.

Joining Arlington on the Top 10 list are Beacon Hill (Seattle), Mercer Island, Vashon Island, Meridian (Kent), Wilburton (Bellevue), Tukwila, North Creek (Bothell), and Kirkland, respectively, along with South Bainbridge Island, which takes the top spot.

This achievement is not only a cause for celebration for Arlington schools, but for the community as a whole. Without the unity between students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the citizens of Arlington, this honor could not have been achieved.

"We are excited for what this means for Arlington, and we look ahead to the future progress and achievements of our wonderful schools and community," the district stated in a press release.

Congratulations  to Our "Humble Hero"  

Mayor Barbara Tolbert

 

Mayor Barb was commended in Seattle Magazine as being one of the

most influential people of 2014


Humble Hero

Barbara Tolbert, mayor of Arlington


When an unstable slope near Oso, Washington, unexpectedly morphed into 25-foot waves of mud on the morning of March 22-engulfing 49 homes, killing 43 people and covering nearly 1 square mile of land in its path-the mayor of Oso's closest neighbor, Arlington, sprang into action. Within an hour, Barb Tolbert had organized an emergency response center next to City Hall. In a matter of days, she had spearheaded efforts to raise money for victims of the landslide and for area residents in need-in total, about $9.1 million was donated to United Way, the American Red Cross and the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation, 73 percent of this coming from individual donors-and had diverted the city's water supply to protect Arlington residents from pollution upstream. She was on hand to welcome and oversee state and federal authorities as they arrived to help with the disaster recovery. All while remaining calm, focused and hopeful in a crisis. But the first-term mayor isn't one to take credit for her efforts: She insists again and again that the true heroes were the citizens of Oso, Arlington and Darrington. "We should all be fortunate to live in communities like these."  Mandolin Brassaw
