From Superintendent Dave Wilcox:

The beginning of the school year is an exciting time for the Smackover-Norphlet School District faculty, students, and community.  We are fortunate to be a part of such a great school district with everybody dedicated to the success of our students.

The Smackover-Norphlet School District is a small school district with thousands of opportunities designed to support our mission of creating college and career ready citizens.  From STEM to agriculture; sports medicine to business; athletics, visual arts, vocal music, and instrumental music; as well as an array of concurrent credit offerings and industry related opportunities at SouthARK Community College‚Äôs Secondary Technical Center, there really is a place for every student in the Smackover-Norphlet School District.

What makes the Smackover-Norphlet School District so special?

  • Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and from many small communities. Together we stand united as the Buckaroos!
  • Our parents are involved in our elementary parent teacher organizations, our athletic booster clubs, our band boosters, and so much more.
  • Our faculty is committed to student success, student achievement, and student growth and development so that our students excel, dream big dreams, and achieve great accomplishments.
  • Our communities are the backbone of our schools with their school spirit and dedication to our students.
  • Our local industries mentor and support our students and provide financial support so that we can provide greater opportunities to our students.

In the Smackover-Norphlet School District, we believe in developing the whole child through engaging and challenging academic instruction, a safe and orderly school climate, learning connected to the local economy and the world, strong leadership, and family engagement.

We welcome all of our students and their families to the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year.  May it be a successful, challenging, and rewarding year for all!
