STAR, Mof>fc, ARKANSAS Thursday. Hope Public Schools to Open Monday Morning, September II Principals of the 4 White Schools Located in Hope The local schools arc moving 1 into their twelfth year as a members of the North Central Association. This standardizing ajrency. of which Arkansas is a member, is the largest of the six regional accrediting agencies in the United States, and is comprised of 20 states, extending to Montana in.the Northwest: Arizona and New Mexico in the Southwest; Ohio. Virginia and West Virginia in the East. To become a member, Schools have to meet prescribed requirements. Any school that is a member of any one of the standardizing agencies in the United States is recognized by those associations in other parts of the nation. This entitles graduates from our schools to be admitted to any institution of higher learning without examination. This rating of the High School depends, however, not only upon its standard of work, but also the standard which is maintained by the Elementary Schools. Mr. James H. Jones. Prncipal, High School, A.
