Stuttgart District and Curriculum
Stuttgart School District is comprised of four schools and 1,900 students. There is an elementary school (PK-4), middle school (grades five and six), junior high school (grades seven and eight), and high school (9-12). The district employs one fulltime faculty member to every 12 students, which is below the state average. All schools follow Common Core Standards which aligns learning from elementary through high school. There are also a number of college and career readiness standards which students are expected to meet.
We currently cover the following Stuttgart-area school district: Stuttgart School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stuttgart District Curriculum
The district has implemented the Common Core Standards. At the elementary level, teachers use and refer to such resources as AAA Math, which contains thousands of basic math lessons, and Aplus Math, which gives educators access to many free resources such as workseets, games, and flashcards. Park Avenue Elementary’s first grade department has posted a list of literacy standards students are expected to achieve during each month of the school year and an impressive college syllabus-esque document outlining the skills and tasks students will perform during each school day of the year.
As students move into high school, the curriculum broadens to include a wider range of electives, honors, Advanced Placement, and career-oriented programs. The general curriculum is very specific regarding the learning expectations in core subjects and the individual topics central to each subject. By doing so, they ensure that all students receive instruction that covers all facets of the subject.

Keeping Informed: Recent Stuttgart Educational News
- Black History Month - During Black History Month, a world history teacher at Stuttgart High School had her students complete a project in which they would learn a great deal about five famous African Americans of their choosing. She asked them to research and present to the class what the five figures were known for, how they contributed to society, and the impacts their contributions had. Students chose a wide range of figures from doctors to individuals close to their age to amputee athletes.
- Reading Challenge - Park Avenue Elementary students were preparing to join hundreds of thousands of young students across the country participating in the third annual “Read the Most Coast to Coast” day. The students had the lofty goal of surpassing the total number of Accelerated Reading (AR) quizzes taken by participants around the U.S. during the challenge day the year prior: 4,409,622. Throughout the day, the students were to continually be informed of the total number of AR tests completed nationwide, and Park Avenue classes with 100 percent participation in the challenge would receive a special treat: the opportunity to tape the school librarian to the cafeteria wall in front of the entire school.
- Teen Driving - The safety coordinator at Farm Bureau of Arkansas recently talked to and presented a video to an economics class at Stuttgart High School about the dangers of teen driving. In the video, students saw tragic accidents and deaths that occurred due to texting and driving. The safety coordinator pointed out that the most common cause of death amongst American teenagers is distracted driving and emphasized that it illegal in Arkansas for individuals under 18 to use a cell phone at all while driving. She also discussed other distractions such as eating, putting on makeup, and interacting with passengers in the car.

Chalk Talk: Tips on Selecting Colleges
Choosing a college is one of the most important decisions a person can make in his/her life. Here are a few tips on selecting universities to apply to: Remember that there is no limit to the number of colleges you can apply to. Even if you are wishy-washy about a certain school, apply anyway! If you want to go to school in, say, Boston, apply to multiple schools in the area. Even if you are adamant about going to a university far from home, apply to at least one school close to home. You never know if you will change your mind about your top choices or if you will start to feel uneasy about moving far away from home. Also, the college application process is very competitive, so it is a good idea to have several backup plans. Have an open mind. You may be gung-ho about going to a small school or choosing a university on an urban campus, but that does not exclude you from applying to schools with characteristics that differ from your preferences. Again, you may end up changing your mind.
