Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Centerton District Curriculum
Bentonville uses the Common Core Standards and—as of now—benchmarked state assessments in math and literacy that are given to students in grades 3-11 annually. Fifth and seventh graders must complete the science assessment as well. The district is devoted to enhancing instruction with technology. Each classroom not only has access to the school-wide network but also its own local area network.
The instructional technologists have initiated a “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) program. This allows each student to bring in a personal device to use for educational purposes—if he/she wishes—after having read and signed an agreement. Examples of devices students can bring to school are laptops, iPads or other tablets, e-readers, and smartphones (in some cases). In addition, Bentonville is committed to helping every student reach his/her potential and offers several special services, such as autistic support, a hearing impaired specialist, occupational and physical therapy, paraprofessionals to work one-on-one with students with special needs.

- A Guide to a Productive College Visit - In order for college visits to be fruitful, there are steps that should be taken by students and families before, during, and after the visit. Before, they should make sure that tours are being given on the day they plan to visit and arrange to attend a class. During, they should ask a great deal of questions, take photos if possible, and even speak to college students. After, they should record their observations, stay updated on campus news, and send thank-you notes to professors who allowed them to sit in on classes.
- Students Take Part in Choosing New School Name, Mascot - Bentonville High School is home to a lot of students—over 4,000—but that number will soon be reduced, as a new, second high school will be built in Centerton and is expected to open in 2016. However, questions still remain: What will be the name of the school and its mascot? Hundreds of suggested mascot names have been offered, such as Bengals, Colonial Sam, and Golden Tornadoes. The school board will ultimately make the final decisions, but about 20 Bentonville freshmen will narrow down the list of school names that the board will choose from, and all of the freshmen and eighth graders will vote for their favorite mascot name.

Chalk Talk: Seeing Past Your Dream School
High school upperclassmen sometimes fall into one of two groups: those who have no idea what they want to do after school or what college they want to attend, or those who have had their dream school picked out since they were ten years old and must attend that college. During the junior year, whittle down the selection of colleges and think about how the programs coincide with career goals. Study course selections, majors and minor offerings, internship programs, and work study opportunities. During October of senior year, students pursuing early application may know where they will be going. During December, the deadline for applying to the other school will be approaching, and for students who have not been accepted early, this time can be stressful and exciting. Most of all, it is critical to consider one’s future career beyond college and to keep an open mind during the college selection process.
