Kingston High School is being recognized by the Office for Educational Policy for statewide high overall 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 Villines and Superintendent Cantrell,

Congratulations! KINGSTON 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, KINGSTON HIGH received the following awards:

Statewide High Overall Growth: High School Level

We provide a badge for placement on your school's website (attached), and a personalized paper award 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, and to be added to our weekly updates and roundup of education news, send an email to with the subject line "Sign me up!"

Congratulations again on your OEP Growth award!
