This is an excellent school! My children have thrived there and are in the top of their classes. Many of the things that were said in the other reviews are not true. Parents are always allowed in the school if you come to the office and sign in which is obviously for student safety. I would definitely send my child here if you want them to learn and be ready for testing. There is always room for improvement in some areas but for the most part, it is excellent.

I sent my child here for 1st grade. The kids are not allowed to talk just about anywhere. Only one 15 minute recess, taken away for any disciplinary infraction. Parents were not allowed in the school building except for party times. School officials did not even want to hear that my child was hearing disabled, instead they continued to send home discipline notes about 'not listening.' Teacher was not interested in talking to me as a parent and the principal hates kids! 1st graders were learning the same thing as kindergarten.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arkansas used the Benchmark Exam to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in literacy and grades 3 through 8 in math. The Benchmark Exam is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Arkansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
