Experience the power of public education.
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year at Sylvan Hills High School. It’s a great time to be a BEAR! Sylvan Hills High School has shown great growth in population over the last couple of years and is one of the fastest growing schools in central Arkansas. We boast award-winning programs in Journalism, EAST, Choir, Band, Art, JAG, and have championship caliber athletic teams.
Sylvan Hills High School students have excelled in the classroom, proven by continually increasing scores on state standardized exams and increased ACT scores for college entrance. Sylvan Hills is a part of the Arkansas Advanced Initiative for Mathematics and Sciences (AAIMS) to strengthen the teaching of Advanced Placement mathematics, science, and English courses. In the past two years, our AP program has grown in student participation and in the percentage of students receiving qualifying scores for college level coursework.
Sylvan Hills students are also afforded a challenging curriculum in elective offerings. This past year, an Engineering program was introduced that has excelled and grown in population. Next year, we will look to add a program in Biomedical Sciences.
We are very excited to pilot a 1:1 technology initiative this school year. As this school year progresses, every student and every teacher will be given an iPad to enhance each student’s learning potential. This technology will be used in conjunction with Apple TVs in several of our classrooms to aid in group and individual presentations and research. Again, this technology will allow each student to have information at their fingertips throughout the school day and beyond.
Our motto is “Sylvan Hills High School Builds Champions…on the field…in the classroom…in life!”
Best wishes on a successful and rewarding school year!
Tracy Allen, Principal
