Paragould School Board Approves New "Theme" Schools

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - The Paragould School Board has voted to approve the implementation of theme schools into their district.

Jonesboro recently took similar action with the development of the "magnet schools."  Now, Paragould will implement a theme school system of their own, starting this year in the fall.

The breakdown of the schools and their "theme" looks like this:

  • Math, Technology and International Studies - Woodrow Wilson
  • Visual and Performing Arts - Baldwin
  • Health, Wellness and Environmental Science - Oak Grove
