"Beating the Odds" High Math Growth: High School Level (Southeast Region)
McGEHEE HIGH SCHOOL has been recognized by the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas as a school that is Beating the Odds, because students demonstrated high growth on the 2019 ACT Aspire even though the school serves a high percentage of students who participate in Free and Reduced Lunch! Growth is the best indicator of the positive impact that our school is having on students!
Congratulations to all of our staff and students for this outstanding achievement! Thanks to the University of Arkansas OEP for the recognition.

McGehee High School Partners with the Arkansas Rural Health Partnership to Train Students in teen Mental Health First Aid
tMHFA is an in-person training designed for high school students to learn about mental illnesses and addictions to help them identify and respond to friends who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem. With this training, our high school students will be empowered to assist their friends when a mental health problem or crisis, such as suicidal thoughts, is apparent.
The course specifically teaches the important step of involving a responsible and trusted adult. As such, we are also training thirty of our school staff in Mental Health First Aid for Adults Working with Young People.
The National Council for Behavioral Health and Born This Way Foundation are piloting the course in over 35 high schools across the country, including MHS. After the pilot program is complete, the training course will be available to the public.
Thank you for your continued support of MHS and this community. We are excited to support a path toward greater awareness about mental health and increased capacity to respond to students with mental health problems.
