READ TO SUCCEED
You already know how important it is for students to read. So does AHS!! That’s why we have been promoting “Silent Sustained Reading” during our Advisory Classes. Students may check out books in the AHS Library and their Classroom Libraries. “R.I.S.E” Arkansas encourages a culture of reading throughout the state, bringing together community partners, parents, and teachers to help students become lifelong readers. Please help encourage your children to read and support our reading initiative for the students to READ to SUCCEED!! Thank you!
AHS students are encouraged by our student recognition/incentive program that is based on the acronym of “PRIDE”. Students receive “Red Devil Pride Points” for behaviors that represent these attributes and are recognized.
Atkins High School is proud to be participating in the Arkansas Advanced Initiative for Math and Science (AAIMS) program that has proven in the past 8 years that students have increased their qualifying AP scores for college credit. Arkansas currently ranks 4th in the US in percent increase of student receiving qualifying scores. Also, Arkansas is 3rd in the US in percent increase of students taking classes and receiving qualifying scores. Please help our Atkins High School Faculty with encouraging your child to enroll in our AP classes. We offer AP classes in Math, English, Science, and Social Studies.
