OEP Recognizes Student Achievement Growth at SCMS

Star City Middle School has been recognized by the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas as a school that is Beating the Odds, because students demonstrated high growth on the ACT Aspire as a school serves a high percentage of students who participate in Free and Reduced Lunch! The OEP recognizes schools with high student achievement growth. OEP believes growth is the best indicator of the positive impact that your school is having on students.

In our Beating the Odds report, Star City Middle School received the following award:

"Beating the Odds" ELA Growth: Middle Level (Southeast Region)

Awards are based on the 2018 content growth score calculated by the Arkansas Department of Education. These growth scores reflect how much students at the school improved from 2017 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement. 

“Congratulations SCMS students and staff on this great accomplishment! We are proud to share this good news with teachers, students, and community who contribute to our school’s success,” stated Superintendent, Jon Laffoon.
