Park Magnet Principal Dr. Sarah Oatsvall shares the exciting news and elite status with the Trojan Community and Park Families, below ...

“Park Families! I am so excited to share our incredIBle news this week! Yesterday, Park Magnet was named a 2021 National Blue Ribbon School, which makes this the 3rd time for Park to receive this outstanding national honor! This means that we are one of the top elementary schools in the United States of America! We are so excited for this honor. 

As a National Blue Ribbon School we are committed to exemplifying high expectations for ourselves. Our staff work tirelessly each day to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our students. We hold our students to high standards in regards to both their learning and behavior, each and every day. We ask that our parents and families continue to partner with us in helping our students meet these expectations 

Schools across the United States can be nominated by their state departments of education to be considered as National Blue Ribbon schools every five years. This means that we, the Park Magnet school community, must now continue to be a model of educational excellence such that five years from now we can, again, be recognized as a National Blue Ribbon school. Please join me in this commitment to excellence as we represent the Hot Springs School District, the wider Hot Springs community, the state of Arkansas, and the United States of America! 

Thank you to our staff, students, parents, families, and our entire Hot Springs community! This award and recognition is a reflection of each and every one of you!”
