The current Arlington High School, designed by Howard B.S. Prescott, was opened in 1915 for grades 10-12. What is now known as "Fusco house" was the only original building. Boys and girls were required to enter the building through two separate entrances. Two additions were later added on, the "Collomb house," as it is now known, in 1937 and then the "Downs house."
Peirce Field, an outdoor field for football, soccer, track, field hockey, lacrosse, baseball and softball, was created by filling in "Cutter's Pond", which had been previously used for milling. Mill Brook still runs underneath the high school to this day. The field was renovated in 2004 due to toxin levels in the soil, which stemmed from a company located where the Department of Public Works is currently situated. A settlement was reached with the company to pay for the entire cleaning, capping, and renovation.
Since the mid-1990s several news documentary shows have been to Arlington High School, including Chronicle, Nightline, and MTV Made. It has also been the topic of many news stories covered by Fox News, Fox 25, Channel 7, among many other TV channels and radio stations.
