We are so very proud of our students and their teachers! 

Westside Elementary was recently 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's Outstanding Educational Performance Awards recognizes schools with high student growth believing that growth is the best indicator of the positive impact a school has on students.

In their Elementary School Level report, Westside Elementary received the following awards:

High Overall Growth: Elementary Level (Northwest Region)

High ELA Growth: Elementary Level (Northeast Region)

Awards are based on the 2018 content growth score calculated by the Arkansas Department of Education. These growth scores reflect how much students at Westside improved from 2017 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement. The OEP recognizes schools based on Overall growth, as well as for growth in Math and English Language Arts separately.
