Upper Arlington High School, one of Ohio's premier high schools, has a long history of offering an exemplary academic experience for students, a renowned performing arts program, and numerous and varied opportunities for students to explore their passions and find their niche through athletic and extracurricular activities.  Each year, Upper Arlington High School students are recognized for excellence in academics as National Merit Finalists and Commended Scholars and International Baccalaureate Diploma scholars, and they consistently bring home honors in national, regional, statewide and local competitions in math, science, computer science, robotics, art, writing, the performing arts, speech and debate, and much more.

Upper Arlington High School has been home to students and graduates who have been recognized as Presidential Scholars, Rhodes Scholars, Intel Science Award winners, and members of the USA Today All-USA Academic Team, and one graduate has gone on to win a Nobel Prize in Physics.

An entirely new Upper Arlington High School was built in 2020 and 2021, and opened to students in the fall of the 2021-2022 school year. It serves approximately 1,900 students in grades 9 through 12. 

Facilities Master Planning at Upper Arlington High School

A new Upper Arlington High School opened for the 2021-2022 school year. Part of the first phase of the community-developed master plan for Upper Arlington’s schools, the high school and every elementary school in our district is either completely new or fully renovated and includes needed space for the district’s growing enrollment. 

The completed Upper Arlington High School project features:

  • Nearly 400,000 square feet of completely new learning space, an increase of over 100,000 square feet from the old building 

  • A three-story academic wing with flexible learning studios for the core subject areas, dedicated an updated science labs and multiple collaborative commons areas

  • An expansive multi-use space, known as Golden Bear Boulevard, that serves as the heart of the building, connecting academics, the arts and athletics

  • Expanded arts and athletics facilities, including a new performing arts center, black box theater, natatorium, varsity gym and three-court multi-purpose gym, as well as a renovated stadium

  • Additional off-site athletics facilities including a new turf field and baseball and softball facilities for high school teams and community use at Tremont Elementary School

  • A new, secure main entrance accessible from the corner of Brandon and Zollinger roads with adjacent visitor parking

  • All new building systems — mechanical, electrical and plumbing

These new and modern learning spaces are supporting our students as they develop the skills necessary to serve, lead and succeed now and in their futures. 

This project also provides additional space to meet the needs of our growing school district. In the event that growth exceeds projections, each project has been designed to have a logical place for a classroom addition, if needed.
