Arlington Heights High School is a secondary school located in Fort Worth, Texas, U.S.A.. The school, which serves grades 9 through 12, is a part of the Fort Worth Independent School District. The school mascot is the Yellow Jacket and the school colors are blue and gold.Arlington Heights High School serves western portions of Fort Worth including the Como Arlington Heights, Ridglea, Meadows West, and Rivercrest neighborhoods and the City of Westover Hills. As of 1996 some students are bussed in from the Butler subsidized housing in Downtown Fort Worth and some communities in southeast Fort Worth with racial and ethnic minority groups.Hollace Weiner of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram said in 1996 that the school was "A scholastically touted institution that draws students from private schools"HistoryArlington Heights High School was established in 1922 and hosted 715 students in its inaugural year. The current building was built in 1937. Originally, students from this area attended Stripling High School in the 1920s, which is now a feeder middle school.At that time, students at Heights were referred to as 'teasippers', a nickname Texas A&M Aggies used to call Texas Longhorns because UT students were more likely to be doctors and lawyers, while Aggies were more likely to go into ranching and related fields. Heights was generally affluent and white until the late 1960s, hosting many children of notable citizens of Fort Worth such as the Belknaps and Dickeys, as well as Governor Connally's children. African American students attended Como High School, which no longer exists and was merged with Arlington Heights at its closing. Students at Arlington Heights referred to their school as 'The Hill', as the main building offers a view of the Trinity River valley to the south, from which AHHS is visible for miles.
