In August 2019, both the Robotics and Precision Machining Programs were recognized by NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, Congressman Robert Aderholt, & US Astronaut Ricky Arnold, who paid a visit to see first-hand what these students had achieved.

The Arab High School HOSA, Future Health Professionals, is nationally recognized and has been ranked No. 1 in the State for 39 of the last 42 consecutive years, ranking in the Top 3 the other 3 years. This group of exceptional individuals truly reflects the commitment to excellence that has been made by high school administration and faculty.

In 2019, the Arab Elementary School conducted the first Amazing Shake Competition, and students from 3rd – 5th Grades were scored on eye contact, smile, greeting, hand shake, and the ability to initiate and carry on a one-minute conversation with a panel of judges. There were 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Winners from each grade, and one Overall Winner. Miss Eliza Trammell, a third grade student, earned the coveted title, as the first AES Amazing Shake Winner, largely due to her expressive 5-minute long speech that she presented to the entire Arab Elementary School student body, a second panel of judges, family members, friends, faculty and staff.

With a succesful Pre-K program, a nationally recognized musical theater program, choral and band programs, and athletic programs including football, basketball, baseball, soccer, track, volleyball, wrestling, swimming, golf and tennis, there is no question why Arab City Schools is one of Alabama’s top-performing public school system.
