Amanda Arnold Elementary School was built in 1985. There was a significant addition built in 2010.
Amanda Arnold Elementary School was named for Miss Amanda Arnold, the first teacher in Manhattan. Because she was the last surviving member of her family, there was no marker placed on her grave at her death in 1923. In 1995, thanks to the combined efforts of the AA PTA, teachers and students as well as the Polly Ogden Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Manhattan Monument Company, a marker was finally placed on her grave at Sunset Cemetery.
