Congratulations! BARTON HIGH 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 where they recognize schools with high student academic growth. Growth is the best indicator of the positive impact that our school is having on students.
Barton High School has been awarded:
High Overall Growth: High School Level (Southeast Region)
High Math Growth: High School Level (Southeast Region)
Awards are based on the 2019 content growth score calculated by the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education. These growth scores reflect how much students at the school improved from 2018 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement. OEP recognizes schools based on Overall growth, as well as for growth in Math and English Language Arts separately. To learn more about how they determined the OEP award winners and to see the full list of award recipients, you can view the report here.
Congratulations again on your OEP Growth award!
