MENA MIDDLE 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! As you may know, the OEP creates an annual report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards where we recognize schools with high student academic growth. We think growth is the best indicator of the positive impact that your school is having on students.
In our Middle School Level report published today, MENA MIDDLE SCHOOL received the following awards:
High Overall Growth (Southwest Region)
High Math Growth (Southwest Region)
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. We recognize schools based on Overall growth, as well as for growth in Math and English Language Arts separately.
