Northeast Arkansas school honored with top 30 ranking



Highland, Arkansas – According to a recent study by SchoolDigger, the Highland School District ranked 30 out of 249 school districts in the state of Arkansas.

They were proud of the high number, especially after their students suffered learning losses during the COVID-19 pandemic, officials said.

High School Principal Missy Floyd explained they aren’t done working and will continue climbing to the top, adding that an extra class at the high school is helping those who might struggle to catch up.

“We are creating an RGI plan. During that time of the day, we pull out students who need a little bit of extra help in their core classes, and there are also other things that students are doing during that time to be college and career-ready,” Floyd said.

According to Middle School Principal Paulette Crouthers, she was proud of the entire district for their hard work. “We were better than 81% of all districts in the state of Arkansas. We were very proud of everyone. They worked hard, and it paid off,” Crouthers said.

They are prepared to do whatever it takes to continue the top-notch education of kids in the classroom, officials said.
