Oakdale has been recognized by the Office for Education Policy (OEP) as a school that is "Beating the Odds!" The Office for Education Policy at the University of Arkansas creates an annual report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards, and the "Beating the Odds" awards are given to schools who are serving a high percentage of students from low-income communities that are nevertheless reaching high levels of achievement. Awards are based on the OEP-created “school GPA,” calculated on the basis of the percentage of students that perform at each level on the 2016 ACT Aspire Math, ELA, and Science. To learn more about how award winners are determined and to see the full list of award recipients, you can view the report by clicking on the following link: Arkansas Education Report
