Superintendent’s Message

Welcome to Arp ISD, a district of 3 campuses and 885 students!  Our schools offer students a quality education while their families enjoy living the country life that so many people yearn for.  Arp is nestled between Tyler, Henderson, Kilgore, and Longview.  The district is thriving and is a leader in technology integration, earning First Place in a national, Digital School Districts Survey for 2016-2017.

Our district is the hub of our community and has the support of its citizens and businesses.  We are blessed to have some of the best and most qualified teachers in East Texas, and I do not mind boasting about it.  Arp ISD is turning out the leaders of tomorrow.  Our graduates have gone off to major universities, including Texas A&M, Baylor, Texas Tech, and LSU.  We currently have three graduates attending medical schools in Texas.

Our extracurricular programs, including football, basketball, band, Ag, and the performing arts win awards and championships each year.  Our high school even offers new opportunities for students to participate in such as robotics, fishing, and clay shooting competitions.  A quality education experience, in and out of the classroom, is what we are providing to our students.

If you are looking for a new district for your children to attend, you may want to look into Arp ISD.  We are accepting transfer students and we relish the opportunity to show you why Arp ISD is one of the best public education offerings you can find in East Texas.  Come by and we will give you a tour of our facilities!
