The original structure of Arleth School was built in 1957; additions to the building occurred in 1959 and 2000. The building has a large cafeteria and multipurpose room and a separate gymnasium/auditorium. There is also a large library with a separate computer lab. Recently, there have been recent upgrades to the heating units in some parts of the building. New energy efficient windows have also been installed in a majority of the building.
