Arlington School

The Arlington School is located on the elegant McLean Hospital campus in Belmont, Massachusetts. We occupy an historic brick Victorian cottage, set apart from other buildings on the campus, with fireplaces in many of the classrooms. The Arlington School building has charm, charisma and a great deal of historic interest. The grounds around the school contain some of the original Frederick Law Olmsted landscaping, including an orchard.

Our academic, arts and wellness programs are well equipped to meet the broad needs of our students.

  • Arlington SchoolAccess to McLean’s fitness center and gymnasium for PE classes
  • A resource room allowing separate, supervised space for students who need to work alone or in pairs
  • A multi-purpose room where the school-provided lunch is served to students and staff every day
  • A separate conference room in the McLean cafeteria for testing, team meetings and parent support groups

Arlington School has three levels of classrooms, offices and student activity space, with room for approximately 40 students and 20 staff.
