Last April, a handful of upperclassmen at Bentonville High School banded together to help fellow students prepare for college entrance exams. Each teacher holds an ACT test score of 32 (or higher – Shahul Alam landed a perfect score last year), but the students who run Aspire Higher have a lot more in common than test scores.
These high achievers have encountered the red tape of taking advanced courses without prerequisites – and the cramming that comes along with it. Thanks to their parents, students and teachers, these students have gained a firm footing in the demands of AP-level coursework.
In an effort to empower other students, the Aspire Higher group spent the 2015 summer break teaching Northwest Arkansas students condensed, high-level courses (dubbed “crash courses”) in the following subjects:
- AP Calculus AB
- AP Calculus BC
- AP Physics C: Mechanics
- AP Chemistry
- AP Biology
Aspire Higher is headquartered at 2618 SE J Street, Suite 10 in Bentonville. The group offers tutoring courses 100% free of charge.
