One reason new residents flock to Arcadia is the high-class public schools, which are about as good as one can get. Arcadia often ranks in the top 10% for High Schools in California, and has AP participation at 60%. Students score high in both mathematics and English, above the 80% level. The high school campus also holds the Arcadia Performing Arts Center, a $20 million-dollar venue that seats 1,200 and showcases both high school performances and professional productions.

The six elementary and three middle schools all feed into the high school, with numerous quality private schools and tutoring centers around town.
