|School Supply List|
We are including our School Supplies List on our webpage. We have set up a fund raiser with Office Depot this year. For everything you purchase at Office Depot they will donate a portion back to our school. You get the great products you need for your student to succeed during the school year and we get money back for our school. At the top of each list you will find a school ID number, you must give this number in order for us to receive credit for your purchase. If you have a student in 6th - 8th grade click on the one labeled LISA MS and if you have a student in 9th - 12th grade click on the one that is labeled LISA HS. This is a general list, teachers may require more than what is listed after your student starts class. Thank you for your help,

|LISA placed 1st in Arkansas in Washington Post's High School Challenge|
Dear LISA family,
LISA Academy was placed first in Arkansas and 164th in the nation at Washington Post's High School Challenge.
America's Most Challenging High Schools ranks schools through an index formula that's a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of 1.000 means the school had as many tests as graduates.
