Greenbrier Middle School Receives OEP Awards


Greenbrier Middle 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, and this year we are recognizing schools with high student growth, with growth being one of the best indicators of the positive impact schools have on students.

In our Middle Level report released this week, Greenbrier Middle received the following awards:

Statewide High Overall Growth: Middle Level

Statewide High Math Growth: Middle Level

High Overall Growth: Middle Level (Central Region)

High Math Growth: Middle Level (Central Region)

Awards are based on the 2017 content growth score calculated by the Arkansas Department of Education. These growth scores reflect how much students at the school improved from 2016 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement. Awards are based on Overall growth, as well as for growth in Math and English Language Arts separately. To learn more about how we determined the OEP award winners and to see the full list of award recipients, you can view the report here.

We congratulate Greenbrier Middle School on this accomplishment and hope that you will share this good news with teachers, students, and others who contributed to your school’s success.
