Accent on Academics

Accent on Academics
aoa 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 ceremonies.
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.
