Bentonville has good schools.  I don't know much about Springdale or Fayetteville.  Rogers has good schools, but they are struggling to keep up with the growth.

Fayetteville was ranked #797 in the Washinton Post's last rankings of America's top high schools.  It's the 3rd highest ranking for an Arkansas school behind Mills University Studies and Little Rock Central.

Springdale- best football town- best real estate deals of the big-4. See my wife's website to look around at some houses... give her a call when you need a Realtor. OH- and great schools. Har-Ber is only 1 year old and awesome... like a small college.

Bentonville. I was raised there, best acadenuc scores (per capita), best facilities, best financing. Not good if you're a kid though. Lots of Big Brother. Cameras will catch anything and everything.

The reason Bentonville's scores are so high is because of the high proportion of high income well educated parents.  It doesn't mean that they have the best schools.  If you want your kids to go to mega schools where they have no sense of community and are just a number and a test score I suggest any in the area.

I would suggest one of the smaller districts as well, and my wife teaches at one of the big boys.  I have already told her when our girls are in Jr. High or Highschool we are moving to the country.

All are good.  I think Fayetteville and Bentonville have the best scores (just barely).  All have issues:

Bentonville - One High School with a lot of kids having a lot of money and both parents are working.  Problems are being caused between the "haves and have nots".  More of a drug problem.

Rogers - One High School with growth problems.  Some early signs of hispanic gangs there.

Springdale - Just divided into two High Schools.  SHS is in the older part of part of town and has a greater hispanic population.  The new school (120mm building) is pretty much all anglo.

Fayetteville - One school, the most liberal because of the U of A.  I believe they have a Gay and Lesbian Student organization.

We send our daughter to a college prep. charter school in Farmington.  It specializes in math, science and engineering.  College placement is at 100 %.  It is a public school but you have to pass a test to get in.  They move at a very fast rate and if a scholar has trouble keeping up, they will suggest that they go back to public schools.

Hope this helps.

Take advice coming from a teacher.........yeah you may have more money in Bentonville. But Fayetteville school district is hands down the best school in this area as far as academics go. Their highschool just got voted into the top 4% highschools in the nation. Their elementary schools are second to none, using every top program/method in every subject. They are on the cutting edge of technology. Owl Creek opened up last fall and every child in the school has a laptop. On top of that, Fayetteville's athletic program in consistently ranked in the top 20 nationally. This is a no brainer if you ask me.

The gang problem is not "creeping up" in Rogers, it's full blown.  There are issues with gangs everywhere and it's more of an issue than people realize.  It's not just Hispanic gangs either.  Asian, Hispanic, Whites, all of them are around.  The good thing about it though is that the law enforcement community has recognized it a lot earlier than most areas do.  They are still playing catch up but are tackling it head on, especially in Rogers.  What people have a hard time understanding is that when you realize you may have a gang problem in your area, it's too late.

Rogers is building a new High School to be opened in 2008. Rogers will have two of the nicest schools in the state. The one they have now is great. I have lived in Rogers my entire life and I really dont see this gang problem that yall talk about not anymore than anywhere else. Sports wise when they split up I would not go to Rogers because they will stink it up.

Bentonville schools consistently top the charts in testing, but I think it's the population mix, rather than the school system.

I have had kids who have graduated from both Fayetteville and Springdale public schools as well as Shiloh Christian ..  all have had good academic programs. Har-Ber in springdale is new, great facilities, and springdale has always supported academics well.  Fayetteville is a bit too liberal for me which is one reason I moved to Springdale.  Some of the outlying schools such as farmington and Prairie Grove which are smaller also have good programs, depends on what your kids want. I dont think you could go wrong with any of the schools mentioned. Rogers and Bentonville have not yet split their high schools but I think both are in the works.  Depending on the ages of your kids (elementary or high school) I would probably pay a lot of attention to what school district they were in in a particular city, that can have a tremendous influence on your decision as to where to locate.

Rogers west. I grew up in the Pinnacle area and kids on that side of town will not go to one school older than 8 years old. You also have access to a brand new outdoor mall, several resteraunts, office locations, and a world trade center within a mile radius.

I wouldn't live anywhere up there except Fayetteville.  Or more accurately, just outside of Fayetteville.  There is a lot to be said for the smaller districts surrounding Fayetteville, and from deep woods to downtown Fayetteville can be done in about 5 minutes.  The town is just nicer.  The way it has been built up with all their pesky rules for development actually pay off aesthetically. 

There again...I'm a liberal who moved to Florida for work. And what do I know I graduated from FHS...

If you want good schools you have to go Fayetteville. First of all most of the kids in the class will speak English not Spanish. I'm not trying to be mean but this is becoming a problem in the other schools, I know a couple of people who have taught at these schools. I have heard from some younger people i know who go to FHS that the kids from New Orleans have caused a few problems. I do know for a fact that if your kids go through FHS they will have an intersting and diverse education.

Never said it was LA.  Just said it was a lot bigger problem than people realize.  If your quality of life hasn't changed, then I'm glad.  One of the things people assume with gangs is the South Central LA stereotype.  Most gangs have gotten away from the drive-by mentality and try to maintain a low-key type profile.  The signs are all over though and as someone who works closely with the schools, they are growing at an alarming rate.  And they are spreading to younger and younger kids all the way down to the elementary school level.  A couple of things that has helped Rogers is the "zero tolerance" policy in schools with regards to any type of gang signs, clothing, tatoos, etc.  Also the Rogers PD recognized the issue a lot sooner than most cities do and organized a gang task force that is doing a lot of work in helping keep the problem down.

How old are your kids?

If they play sports it would be wise to see where they fit in the best.  Fayetteville will have a great baseball program for years to come.  Bentonville should have a good football program.  I would look at that as well as academics

why are some people acting like hispanic people are a negative? i think diversity is extremely important.

i love central because you can walk down the hallway and see a rich white kid from chenal, a poor white kid, a rich black kid, a 6-6 black kid, a poor black kid, an african kid, a chinese kid, a japanese kid, a hispanic kid, a middle-eastern kid, a native american kid, and a kid from india. 

ive made friendships with different ethnic groups that i never would have been able to otherwise, particularly the middle-eastern and black kids, along with the white kids. i think middle-eastern-born people in america get a bad rap that is undeserved. once you get to know them, they are some of the most intelligent, funny, kind inviduals you will ever meet.

thats my 2 cents on diversity.

We are talking about it being negative, becasue it has become a problem in our community. This particular group has many postives in our commuity as well, but in our school systems it has effected them in a negative way.

yeah i bet. test scores go down so it is negative? learning how to deal with all sorts of people and learning to eliminate racism is more important than the actaap.

I live in Bentonville, for what it's worth.

Bentonville and Fayetteville both have very solid schools.  The Bentonville district probably has more money, although Fayetteville is OK in that regard.  You couldn't go wrong with either district.

Rogers is hit or miss.  The high school is pretty good but the elementary and middle schools are totally hit or miss.  Some are great and some suck.  Check the stats.

With the second high school in Rogers, the current high school campus will probably become "Rogers West" or something like that.  It'll cover southwest Rogers.

What I don't like about Rogers is the latent racism.  It's all over the place in that city.  When you here someone say "I don't like what Rogers has become," that really means "Where did the white people go?"

That being said, I know people whose kids went to Rogers and people whose kids went to Bentonville and both were very happy.

Back on Bentonville vs. Fayetteville, though.  The main difference is probably the demographic makeup.  My view is that more kids in the Fayetteville district are from Arkansas.  Bentonville is a lot of kids from all over the country.

Just my .02.

Buddy it's not racism, i dont care what color you are, but yes test scores are down. Teachers are having to spend more time one the same subject to get the point accross. I knew a teacher in springdale and she left the area because of the classroom environment. I had a good friend in High School who was Hispanic, I dont care what you look like, but it is a problem, not trying to be mean it's just the truth.

I liked Siloam Springs and Springdale schools the best. :razorback:   

If i had to pick between bentonville-rogers-fayetteville i think i would have to pick "bentonville" school. :razorback:
