Arundel High School is a public high school located in the Annapolis suburb of Gambrills in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.[2]

The school is part of the Anne Arundel County Public School system, and is the primary high school for Gambrills and portions of the Odenton and Crofton areas.[3] Originally, the school was the Anne Arundel Academy, a prestigious one-room private school founded in 1854.[4][5] That institution became Arundel High School in 1926.[6] It is one of the oldest public high schools in the country, and the 3rd oldest in the state of Maryland.[7] The current school building was built in 1949 and first occupied in 1950, with additions in 1966, 1985, and 2008. Due to high scores in academics, and their good athletics (most notably the football team), Arundel High School has a great reputation in the state of Maryland, and is known as one of the best high schools in Anne Arundel County and the state of Maryland. In 2013, Arundel was ranked as one of the top 20 high schools in Maryland and one of the top 1,000 in the Country by Newsweek.[8] Arundel High School's rival school is South River High School.[9]

Students[edit]

- September 2013: 1,963 students[10]

- September 2012: 1,949 students[11]

Arundel High School gathers students from two middle schools in mid-western Anne Arundel County: Arundel Middle, and Crofton Middle (partial).[17] All students who live in the district for Arundel Middle go on to Arundel High. However, students who live in the district for Crofton Middle may or may not attend Arundel High, depending on their elementary school district. Students in the districts of Crofton Elementary School, portions of Crofton Meadows Elementary School,[18] and Nantucket Elementary School attend Crofton Middle School and then Arundel High School, but students in the districts of Crofton Woods Elementary and Crofton Meadows Elementary attend Crofton Middle School and then South River High School. This reassignment of Crofton Woods and Crofton Meadows from Arundel High to South River High - causing the middle school population to split after 8th grade - was approved by the AACPS Board of Education on March 18, 1998.

Best Buddies[edit]

Students at Arundel High School can join a program called "Best Buddies." Best Buddies is a program where general education students get involved with the disabled students. Arundel's Best Buddies chapter raised the most money in the 2010-2011 school year.[19]

Wildcat Hour[edit]

At Arundel, there is a system for lunch that started in 2008 called "Wildcat Hour." This hour is divided into two halves, with each half being 30 mins. long. During each half, or both, you can visit a teacher to make-up missing assignments, study, or re-do a test or quiz. You can also go to the cafeteria, and eat lunch, and go socialize with friends in the courtyards. Arundel High School was the first high school in Maryland to have an hour of lunch, and is one of the only schools in Maryland with an hour of lunch.[20]

School building[edit]

The current Arundel High School building is divided into seven different long hallways. Those hallways are: A,B,C,D,E,F, and G hall. When the current school building was first built in 1949, it was only F-hall, the longest hall in school. F-hall includes the school auditorium, gym, cafeteria, nurse office, a basement and tech. ed labs, Math, English, and Social Studies classrooms. In 1966, A-hall, B-hall, C-hall, D-hall, and E-hall were built. A-hall is the school's administration hall, and is the entrance to the school. It consists of the school's main office, administrative offices, guidance office, one of the special education classrooms, and attendance window. C-hall used to consist of the school's science classrooms until G-hall was built in 2008. It now mainly consists of the schools math classes and child development class on the lower level, and math and world and classical languages classrooms on the upper level. B-hall consists of the school's musical classes. D-hall is a little hallway that connects C-hall to F-hall, where the cafeteria is. E-hall was built in between C, and F-hall. E-hall consists of the school's media center, theater classroom, some social studies classrooms. the other special education classroom, some of the tech ed classrooms, and art classrooms on the lower level. E Halls upper level mainly consists of the schools world and classical languages classrooms, some social studies clasrooms, and Family And Consumer Sciences classrooms, When E-hall was built, the school received two different courtyards. In 1982, Arundel High School received a new gymnasium, and the school went through a complete modernization, and F-hall, along with the auditorium were completely revitalized. In 2008, Arundel High School received a huge renovation. A new science hallway (G-hall) was added to the school, the cafeteria underwent a huge expansion, and the gym received new bleachers. Arundel High School's building is one of the biggest high school buildings in Anne Arundel County, and the state of Maryland.
