In 2007 Arkansas AIMS received a grant from the National Math and Science Initiative to increase the number of Arkansas students participating in and earning college-qualifying scores for rigorous AP classes. In 2020, Arkansas AIMS continues to open doors for high school and now middle/junior high school students to reach their academic potential. AR AIMS basic belief remains that student success begins with teachers who are knowledgeable in their subject matter, skilled at instructing diverse classrooms, and capable of preparing students to be confident and creative problem-solvers. As Arkansas AIMS continues for the 12th year, our multi-year longitudinal research continues to reveal the benefits of our partnership to ensure strong academic opportunities for students to prepare them for college and career.


In 2020 86 Arkansas schools are AR AIMS partners with 48 schools receiving Active Services to ensure teacher effectiveness and efficacy and student equity and achievement.
