Use AddRange method to add all arraylist entries.

listBox1.Items.AddRange(allStudents.ToArray());

I got your problem
I ran your code and the fort student addition is ok but when the second student is added then your face the issue as the second record is getting added to the same row

I will suggest you to use DataGridView instead of ListView as it will give you more freedom of databinding and will serve your purpose more
I will be happy to help if you face any difficulities

i did a couple of changes to your code, check if it works!
 

 private void btnDispStudInListBox_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        {

            //listBoxStudentDisplay.Items.Add(allStudents.studentList());

            listBoxStudentDisplay.DataSource = allStudents.studentList();            

        }
 

-----

 public ArrayList studentList()

        {

            //string outputString = "";

            //foreach (Student aStudent in allStudents)

            //{

            //    outputString += aStudent.ToString();

            //}

            //return outputString;

            return allStudents;

        }
