SCHS Receives High Overall Growth Award on ACT Aspire Scores

Star City High School has been recognized by the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas as a school where students demonstrated high growth on the ACT Aspire!  The OEP creates an annual report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards, and this year they recognized schools with high student growth.  We think growth is the best indicator of the positive impact that your school is having on students.

In the report, Star City High School was awarded the following:

High Overall Growth: High School Level (Southeast Region)

High Math Growth: High School Level (Southeast Region)

High ELA Growth: High School 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. Schools were recognized based on Overall growth, as well as for growth in Math and English Language Arts separately.

Congratulations to Star City High School on this accomplishment and all who contributed to this success. #WhateverItTakes
