Heber Springs School District Reviews

I enjoyed the small familial feel of my school, but towards the end of my time at Heber High, funding for my school began to fall through. This caused teachers to defect to other schools just to earn a regular salary. Losing the strong base of good teachers hurt my education. The lack of money made it harder to bring in new teachers, so the teacher left were forced to take on many more classes than necessary making it harder to do their very best in their classes.
Before funding for my school dropped there were many large and expensive changes. The school's cafeteria was redone and a completely new performing arts center was built. Both of these renovations or building projects were necessary but highly costly. Soon after these renovations, the funding fell through causing the above issues.

There was a serious lack of communication in the high school and constant change. In my four years of high school, I had two different principals and three different types of scheduling. There was a favoritism issue among the faculty and students. The school also had rats and could not afford to buy paper by the end of my senior year.
I went to Heber Springs School District when I was younger, and overall, I had a good experience. I had good education, great teachers, and there was better parental envolvement than is to be expected. Because Heber Springs is a small community, there is quite a tight-knit group of people, providing a good safety net to students and comfort for parents.
