The Best Public Elementary School In Arkansas- MSN News 2018

Parents want the best for their children. From better job prospects to a brighter future, it all starts with a great education.

Parents want the best for their children. From better job prospects to a brighter future, it all starts with a great education. Early developmental stages are vital for discovering strengths and areas of interest, which is why identifying the right elementary school for your child is so important.
 
Don’t get us wrong, though. By the best schools, we don’t mean schools in the trendiest cities or schools with the latest smartboards. We mean schools that prioritize education by preparing kids for the future and teachers that lead students to a brighter tomorrow.
 
At Stacker, we analyzed Niche’s database of schools to help determine the best public elementary schools in every state. All schools were ranked using data from the U.S. Department of Education analyzing state test scores, graduation rates, student performance, teacher quality, district ratings, and college readiness.
 
School district: Sherwood, AR
 
Students: 304 (Grades K-5)
 
Student-teacher ratio: 19:1
 
Reading proficiency: 82%
 
Math proficiency: 87%

LISA Academy values all persons and is committed to the principle that we should treat one another and those who visit our school with honor, dignity, and respect. We are committed to maintaining a safe environment for our students, staff, and families.  
 
We are excited to begin implementation of LobbyGuard in our schools. The LobbyGuard school security system will streamline our visitor sign-in process. Each person entering our campuses will be asked to sign in using the visitor kiosk and his/her photo identification. We are excited to be able to offer a more efficient sign-in process for visitors and to maintain our list of volunteers for our schools.
 
Please bring your government issued photo identification with you when you come to visit check your student in or out, eat lunch with your student, or volunteer at our school. This allows us to keep our students safe. Implementation will begin as a pilot for 10 days followed by full implementation. Look for this addition to our schools very soon!

2017-2018 Traffic Plan

With the increase in student population, LISA Academy is staggering times that students will be starting and ending classes, thus decreasing the traffic that will be in line at any one time. Please download the 2017-2018 Traffic Plan from the link below.

With the increase in student population, LISA Academy is staggering times that students will be starting and ending classes, thus decreasing the traffic that will be in line at any one time.  It is vital to adhere to the traffic plan, to ensure that everyone gets through in a safe and timely manner and we appreciate your cooperation in our endeavor.  
 
 
For everyone’s safety, we ask that NO parents or students walk across the traffic line.  Also to keep everyone safe parents are asked NOT to park and walk in the fence as it is a dangerous situation with traffic entering and exiting the open gates.  Students will only be allowed to be dropped off or picked up on sidewalk and NO student will be allowed to step off of sidewalk without a parent or guardian present.
