Arlington High School was among the last three public high schools to open within the Indianapolis Public Schools system. Built in response to the rapid growth of the Indianapolis suburbs on the northeast side, Arlington opened in September 1961.
Called the "largest high school under one roof" in the state of Indiana, Arlington was considered to be the best secondary school of its time. It was equipped with state-of-the-art classrooms, labs, physical education equipment and fine arts performing facilities.
Some well-known alumni are Vivica A. Fox, actress and television producer, baseball player Rodney Scott and operatic baritone and Broadway performer, Bruce Hubbard.
