Academic success is an essential foundation of
the Blue Springs School District. Students strive for the achievement and
classroom success that is the basis of our accreditation and Annual Performance
Report. Our District honors students for their academic achievements and since
1986 has celebrated those accomplishments through Accent on Academics
Accent on Academics Week celebrates students, freshman through senior, who have
excelled academically throughout their high school careers. Students are
recognized for maintaining at least a cumulative 3.5 grade point average in
high school. Ceremonies are held at the Blue Springs Freshman Center and at
Blue Springs and Blue Springs South High Schools.
The District will honor 1,636 high school students during Accent on Academics
celebrations this week. Middle school students are also honored in
separate ceremonies at their respective schools for maintaining 3.5 or higher
GPAs during grades 6-8.
