Each year, the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas creates a report titled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards highlighting the highest-performing schools in Arkansas based on the Benchmark and End-of-Course exams. I am pleased to announce that Mountainburg High School won a “High-Achieving High Schools” OEP award. These awards are based on the OEP-created “school GPA,” calculated on the basis of the percentage of students that perform at a particular level on the Benchmark exam (advanced, proficient, basic, and below basic). Our area of recognition is for the EOC Algebra I exam. Way to go students! Way to go Mountainburg!
