Our older daughter transferred to Gravette mid year last year as a junior. Transition was extremely easy. Classes were comparable to what she had previously. Teachers are excellent and showed an interest in her immediately. She changed schools because we moved within Gravette district, had we known what a great experience she would have had, we would have tried to move much earlier in her school career. We have never regretted making the switch and would do it again in a heartbeat.
Gravette's biggest asset is its HOSA program (for now). Other than that, it has agricultural, culinary, and engineering programs. This may not be many, but what they do they do well. The teachers are mostly good. Sometimes you might find one that might not be up to par, but they also have some of the best teachers you'll find. Thus shown by their improving scores. They don't have very many AP (Advanced Placement) classes, but they do have some Pre-AP. Those that are AP can provide you with college credits to a select few colleges (mainly one: NWAC). If you don't start out at an accelerated level, the chances of you getting into the programs are very slim, but not impossible. Overall, if you don't want to go to Bentonville due to its intimidating size (for some), Gravette is your best alternative in the area (in my opinion).
The High School's test scores have increased tremendously! New administration has got the staff working together to see our kids achieve! It is a very safe school for my daughter to attend. I couldn't be happier!
Gravette has some strong points. A new building. A great football coach. And some test scores indicate higher learning. The school is limited in what it can offer. It's not a big school. Students that can't compete or survive in the superior Bentonville High School transfer out here. There's bascially one class for most things besides math, science, english. Only about 10% of the students have an opportunity to excel in a specialized course. . The test scores you see are produced by a narrow margin of students. At GHS 80% of your students are below average and could care less. The top 20 take all the honors. GHS isn't bad it's just mediocre at best. It's a place to go and slide by. Students that score below 20% on the benchmarks are tutored at school until they can present a acceptable test score and they they are promoted to the next grade. GHS is turning out some great students. Unfortunely it's also turning out some horrible students. the good ole boy system can be used to drag a child through high school when he/she can't even score more than 15 on an ACT. Oh and teenage pregnancy is not frown upon here, it's celebrated.
Gravette is an ok school. Don't expect great things. Its an average school. Most teachers seems to care more about themselves than the student. Try finding out what your childs grade it. the online grading system is sporadically updated. Grades seem to change overnight.
Great school with great parent envolvement. Wonderful teachers. Have always been satisfied with the school. We have a new super who is doing a great job and a awesome HOSA department that has medaled for years.
