Arnold Drive Elementary in the Jacksonville North Pulaski School District has been awarded $17,500 by the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) as part of the Arkansas School Recognition Program.

Two hundred and one schools in the state qualified for awards totaling nearly $6.8 million. Arnold Drive was in the top five percent of public schools that achieved high academic growth. These awards were based on the spring 2016 test results.

“We congratulate Arnold Drive students and former principal Angela Stewart on this exceptional academic improvement,” said Superintendent Tony Wood.  “This award demonstrates the hard work of teachers and students.”
