Ashdown High School has been ranked among America's Most Challenging High Schools, according to a recent announcement by The Washington Post, who conducts the research and compiles the listing.
America's Most Challenging High Schools ranks schools through an index formula that's a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement tests given at a school each year divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. Ashdown High School's Challenge Index score was 2.272, which placed them #22 in the 62 schools recognized in Arkansas, #464 of the 894 schools ranked in the South U.S., and #937 of the 1900 public schools named to the list nationwide. Number 937 of the overall total school districts in the United States makes Ashdown in the top 4% nationally.
Of the ten schools in the southwest quadrant of Arkansas who made the listing, Ashdown is fifth and, statewide, Ashdown is ranked ahead of Springdale, Russellville, El Dorado and Fort Smith.
On October 16, 2014, at 10:16 a.m., people across North America and around the world participated in the Great ShakeOut earthquake drill, including students at Margaret Daniel Primary School in Ashdown.
The main goal of #ShakeOut is to get people prepared for major earthquakes and use the event as an opportunity to learn what to do before, during, and after an earthquake.
Every continent on the planet experiences earthquakes; the U.S. Geological Service estimates there are several million earthquakes a year globally and, while a vast majority of these are very small or undetected, about 100,000 quakes per year are felt.
All 50 U.S. states and territories have earthquakes so the ShakeOut is an opportunity to practice how to protect ourselves during earthquakes. Anyone who participates is instructed, wherever he may be, to Drop, Cover, and Hold On as if there were a major earthquake occurring at that very moment, and stay in this position for at least 60 seconds. ShakeOut also has been organized to encourage everyone to update emergency plans and supplies, and to secure your space in order to prevent damage and injuries.
