Henderson State University has partnered with Bismarck School District to create the Lion Reddie Scholarship! Students can earn a Lion Reddie Scholarship when they graduate with honors, a minimum cumulative GPS of 3.3, and successfully complete a minimum of 2 college level courses. This scholarship covers the gap in tuition and fees that is left after other sources of scholarship(s) and financial aid are applied to college costs. BSD is very excited about being able to work with HSU to provide this opportunity for our students!

On Wednesday, May 8, 2019,  HSU President Glen Jones, Director of Admissions Brandie Benton, and other HSU representatives presented the following students with the Lion Reddie Scholarship beginning with the Fall 2019 semester:  (top row from left to right) Brianna Sampson, Madelyn Burton, Emily Cole, (bottom row from left to right) Sydney Sundberg and Natalie Gray.

"We focus on creating personal and academic success for each child, because we recognize that we are not only creating learners, but our future leaders."

Welcome to

Bismarck School District

On behalf of the Board of Education, faculty, and staff, we invite you to visit us and discover the many advantages offered by our district.  We provide the opportunities of a large school within a smaller school environment.  Our students have access to some of the best educators and programs in Arkansas.  We focus on creating personal and academic success for each child, because we recognize that we are not only creating learners, but our future leaders.  Our accomplishments are significant, and they did not happen by chance.  They are the result of dedicated individuals who care deeply about the well-being of each and every individual and who are committed to excellence.  Our district is an extension of our wonderful community.  Through our work as a collaborative community, our students will develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to achieve at a high level.
