Lake Hamilton Primary School has been recognized by the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas as a school that is Beating the Odds, because students demonstrated high growth on the ACT Aspire even though the school serves a population of students who participate in Free and Reduced Lunch! The OEP creates an annual report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards, and this year they are recognizing schools with high student growth. The OEP thinks growth is the best indicator of the positive impact that our school is having on students.
Lake Hamilton Primary received the following awards:
"Beating the Odds" ELA Growth: Elementary Level (Central 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 the school improved from 2017 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement.
