Hail, Alma Mater, we sing to thy praise
Great with affection our voices we raise
Nestling so peaceful and calm ‘neath the sky
Fondly we love thee, dear old Jasper High.
Hail Alma Mater, thy praise we sing,
Loud in thy honor, our voices will ring
Long through the ages remains, if God will
Love and prosperity, dear old Jasper High.
Jasper High School is being recognized by the Office for Educational Policy for high ELA growth. Please see below. The link to the report is not active until tomorrow when the report will be officially released. Thank you for your efforts in improving the educational program for our students.
Dear Principal Lewis and Superintendent Cantrell,
Congratulations! JASPER HIGH 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 where we recognize schools with high student academic growth. We think growth is the best indicator of the positive impact that your school is having on students.
In our High School Level report which will be published tomorrow, JASPER HIGH received the following awards:
Statewide High ELA Growth: High School Level
High ELA Growth: High School Level (Northwest Region)
We provide a badge for placement on your school's website (attached), and personalized paper awards will be sent to the district later this school year.
Awards are based on the 2019 content growth score calculated by the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education. These growth scores reflect how much students at the school improved from 2018 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement. We recognize schools 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 you on this accomplishment and hope that you will share this good news with teachers, students, and others who contributed to your school's success. We find that local papers and social media are effective in spreading the news of your school's success to the community.
For updates and insights, follow our blog at www.officeforedpolicy.com, and to be added to our weekly updates and roundup of education news, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Sign me up!"
Congratulations again on your OEP Growth award!

The Jasper School District's School-Based Health Center (SBHC) is located at 609 West Clark Street on the Jasper Campus. The SBHC offers medical and dental service to all students, faculty, staff, and the entire community. The SBHC provides school-based mental health services to students.
We are proud to offer quality healthcare services that are easily accessible to the student body through our SBHC. We want to ensure that our students are healthy so they can get the most out of their educational experience. We expect that kids will miss less school because they can be seen early, treated quickly and seen right here on campus. We are also committed to partnering with parents to ensure that all kids receive preventative care as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Doctors are in the clinic on the following days:
