Hot Springs School District Reviews

What I would like to see change in Hot Springs is the encouragement of students to accept more challenges and become more college-ready. I wish that there could have been an alternative to the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, such as an AP program which several colleges take credit for as opposed to IB. It would love to see more college fairs and people coming to speak to these students to be more prepared. However, the diversity of the school is what makes it so unique from other districts. Students from all different races and classes come together to solve problems, socialize, and flourish.

My overall experience in being part with Hot Springs School District was pretty decent with some changes in the academic, and food areas should be considered.
Even though the overall academic rating in the school district is acceptable, there are some students that don't take the vigorous coursework seriously. By that, I mean some students come to school only to think it's just social time instead of class time.
During Breakfast and Lunch times, some of the food that is served is mostly spoiled or expired. I as a student hear a lot of complaints from the students that usually eat at school say "most of the milk they serve is mostly spoiled", and "this pop-tart that they served me more than likely expired". Some students also complain that they'll never eat school meals again due to constant meals they're served with are expired.
I first moved to Arkansas when I was about eight years old. Since then, I have attended schools in the Hot Springs district, such as Oaklawn Visual and Performing Arts, Hot Springs Intermediate School, Hot Springs Middle School,
and Hot Springs High School. Overall, the experience was very good. The high school had even just recently turned to a charter school and has helped me prepare for college.
