This is one great school and a school with a heart!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 20, 2008

This is a school that had become to big to give the sturdents much individual attention! They can have a student from K to 4th and have no idea who that student is , even when the stundent is an honer student, is in advanced classes, has all A's in citizenship, and with benchmark scores over 950 in math and advanced in the other area. I would try for a smaller or charter school, unless you are addministation. These are the only children they seem to honestly notice!Principal is very helpful, Vice Principle is a little testy!Ace teacher seems to really know students and appreciate them. Other teachers can't tell you simple facts such as, which students wear glasses or not!

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.
