Hard Won Pinnacle View Middle School Should Let Scoreboard Do Talking

Posted By Arkansas Learns, Saturday, August 5, 2017

At the grand opening of Pinnacle View Middle School, the principal reported that the school (sixth grade only in 2016-17) outperformed the state, district and most charter schools, and was close to Benton, Bryant and Conway on ACT Aspire test results.

Yes, Pinnacle outperformed state, district and Little Rock charter averages, but it led in no category in Little Rock. Pinnacle View sixth grade was outperformed by LRSD's Forest Heights STEM Academy sixth grade in every category. And Pinnacle View was exceeded or equaled in every category by an open-enrollment public charter school.

Here are the numbers:

Percentage of Sixth Graders Meeting Readiness Benchmark for:
 
*First, **Second, ***Third in Little Rock

 Arkansas   47%  70%  41%  42%  40%

 JNPSD  34%  50%  23%  32%  21%
           
 Benton  75%  80%  53%  57%  59%
           
 Bryant Bethel  78%  88%  70%  76%  70%
 Bryant Middle   65%  80%  52%  68%  54%
           
 Conway Carl Stuart  70%  76%  51%  63%  58%
 Conway Ray/Phyllis Simon  71%  72%  51%  81%  53%

 

Of all mentioned, here are your leaders:

  • Math - eStem (79%)
  • English - LRSD Forest Heights STEM (89%)
  • Reading - Bryant Bethel (70%)
  • Writing - Conway Ray/Phillis Simon (81%)
  • Science - Bryant Bethel (70%)

Pinnacle View is perfectly positioned to become and remain the district's, city's and region's academic performance and growth leader. But rather than the anecdotal, it should always let the scoreboard do the talking.
