Mills High School Recognized by OEP for ACT Aspire Growth

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Mills University Studies High 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.

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 High School Level report, Mills received an award for High ELA Growth: High School Level (Central 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. We recognize schools based on Overall growth, as well as for growth in Math and English Language Arts separately.
