The end is near for them why do they not just consolidate. Let the ones that want to go to Smackover go and the ones that want to go to El Dorado go. No football team? What is next that they will take away. Have you seen all the homes for sale in the town. People are trying to get out to protect their childrens education. No-one is wanting to move into Norphlet to go to school there and the ones that live here are sending their kids to PC or Smackover since El Dorado requires legal transfer. Wake up NORPHLET school board there is a reason we dont want out kids under your schools care!

Looks like you need a better education so you'd know to get your facts straight before you open your mouth. Norphlet has no football team because nobody wants to play. All the kids are too lazy playing with their computers and ipads and such. Take away the technology and then maybe your kids will want to do something better with their time.

Check schooldigger.com and see why they don't want to consolidate. As surprising as it is, Norphlet ranks second only to Parkers Chapel in education for our area. I was in shock when I found out the official stats as much as anyone else would be if they took the time to check out the site. It is a small little school and may seem pointless to a lot of people but to the parents of the kids that go there its better than sending them out to El Do or consolidating with Smackover. But really, they need to consolidate with Smackover. They should make the change on their own terms instead of waiting for the city to force them into it.

Norphlet is 2nd in Education, i laughed my butt off at that one and you havent got your fatcs right either, PC isnt 1st if you take all of El Dorado's white kids and put them against PC's white kids only. Their Valedictorian only had a 4.12 GPA whereas El Dorado's 12th ranked student had a 4.1 and the Vaeldictorian had 4.32 and get this both valedictorian and salutatorian were Black!! But i still don't think Norphlet is anywhere close to shutting its doors because the youth dont want to play football. They still have good numbersfor 2 A school!!

OK, so let's chop this up how we want to make the numbers look good! You tickle the hell out of me. If you take all the left handed, Catholics, that come from a family of four or less, and compare them, then PC kicks El Do's butt! How fragmented do you want to get?
Look, we all know El Dorado has some very smart kids. But it is the whole student body that make a school, and in El Dorado's case, that is a very low scoring school.
Why don't all the white kids at El DO form their own private school? Then you might challenge PC as the top academic school in the area. Until then, you live with what you are. Which is way down in the rankings!!

Just as PC is. They've been living on their high elementary school rankings. Last I checked, colleges don't refer to those for admittance.

It all boils down to demographics in regards to scores.

The only thing that matters is the tests you pay for. Take the top 10% from the schools and see where the AP students are. How do the smaller schools compare to EHS now? No one cares what the the elementary scores are. You can test out of this world at 9 and get a 16 ACT at 18yo with a 4.0gpa. It happens. GPA inflation is rampant, look at the standardized test scores.

Nobody is sending their kids to PC to avoid Norphlet. Smackover, yes. El Dorado, a few. PC has always been known as a sh!thole to everyone but people that live in PC.

And you are such a high class citizen with your filthy language. Bet you are proud. Exactly why parents should not want their children in this district. Check out some of the teachers and counselors facebook pages. They are real class acts also!

if you don't live in Norphlet then your tax money is not going there. There is alot of old money in Norphlet that will protect the school if need be. However, they did try to join with Smackover a few years back, and Smackover refused to a name and colors change, so Norphlet said nevermind--the thought behind that was to unite the kids--in stead of having hall fights. Norphlet then chose to go to El Dorado if they were ever forced to go anywhere, and yes there are homes for sale, but there is always at some point and time. And the few that I know of are from couples spliting up and old folks that have passed--not because of the school. And if the school closes I am sure that folks will pick smaller school to send their kids to--not El Dorado!!! Football should be last on the list of why, but sports and band are some of my best recalls from high school and had I gone to El Dorado I would have not gotten that. They want all the whites to move to El Dorado schools to get our taxes, because renters don't pay taxes or homestead homes from low income folks. El Dorado is dying a slow death--the select few rich folks are tring to make it a art town--HAHAHAHAHA! How about making jobs instead of spending our taxes on crap like a trolly, Murphy complex, making the entrances pretty. Sorry wrong topic, but it burns my ass. Because all our kids will have to move from this town to find work just to live. That should be what we should all be working on--JOBS!!!!
