Our Founders Bentonville Upper School Campus (7th-12th grades) is 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. As you may know, the OEP creates an annual report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards where they recognize schools with high student academic growth. Their belief is that growth is the best indicator of the positive impact our teachers and school are having on students.
In their High School Level report, Founders Bentonville High School received the award for High Overall Growth (Statewide).
Awards are based on the 2021 content growth score calculated by the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education. These growth scores reflect how much students at the school improved from 2019 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement.
