Quest Middle School of West Little Rock

There is currently no middle school in Zones 4, 5 or 6 of the Little Rock School District. By contrast, Zone 1 has two, Zone 3 has two, Zone 7 has two, and Zone 2 has one.

In the Spring/Summer of 2013, the Little Rock School Board finally voted to purchase property in Zone 4 for a middle school. But, if it follows the same land purchase-to-opening timeline as Roberts Elementary, a new traditional middle school will not be open in West Little Rock until the 2018-19 school year. Further, the district has made no plans for a high school.

Through years of inaction, the Little Rock School Board has demonstrated that secondary public education in West Little Rock is not a priority. Therefore, the parents, business community, and citizens of West Little Rock seek:

  1. Approval by the Arkansas State Board of Education of an open enrollment public charter middle school to be located in or near Zones 4 and 5 to serve the community by the 2014-15 school year, and
  2. A definitive plan by the Little Rock School District to place middle and high school schools in Zones 4 or 5.
