I grew up in the Dardanelle School district and now have children there. I love the small town feel, but appreciate the diversity, the emphasis on academics, and the many opportunities afforded to students in our town. We are a high-poverty district, but you wouldn't know it by the way our schools treat the students. Many of the teachers are absolutely top-notch and show how much they care about the students on a daily basis. I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else in the area!

After being apart of Dardanelle School District for thirteen years, I have found myself enjoying the district more and more. The faculty and staff at the district are always there to help, no matter what the issue at hand is. Dardanelle's rigorous curriculum prepares college-bound students for the challenges they will face. As for the changes, the school could use a little more school spirit.
I've been with the Dardanelle School District all my life. I have attended the school district since kindergarten all the way to my senior year (which is now.) Without being biased, I can honestly say I've enjoyed my full experience with my school. It is one of the best in Arkansas, we are ranked #19 in the state of Arkansas. It really does prepare you for college. In fact, many alumni come back to receive help in their college work. We are very diversed and as a small school, we've all become a big family.
