BHS continues to outperform state and nation on ACT

posted Oct 17, 2018, 11:43 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Oct 17, 2018, 11:44 AM ]

Bartlesville High School's ACT Composite Score average for the graduating Class of 2018 was 21.1, compared to 19.3 for students statewide. Over the past five years, students graduating from BHS have outperformed the state average by from 1.4 to 2.3 points on the 36-point scale.

The district similarly outperformed the state in the ACT curriculum-based tests of educational development in English, mathematics, reading, and science.

12% to 16% more of the district's students were rated as ready for college than students statewide in the various tested areas.

The students' scores hold up similarly well when compared to nationwide data. There are 20 states like Oklahoma where almost all students take the ACT. The BHS Class of 2018 outperformed the national average of 20.8 as well as the state averages of every state except #1, Minnesota, which scored 21.3 compared to 21.1 for BHS. It is important to note that Oklahoma's public school per-pupil spending is still last in the region, even after a record increase for the current fiscal year to address a worsening teacher shortage in Oklahoma. The latest available data shows that in FY15, when the Class of 2018 students were freshmen, Oklahoma was spending only  2/3 as much per pupil compared to Minnesota.

Special concert version of Oklahoma! on 11/1 and 11/4

posted Oct 6, 2018, 4:46 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Oct 6, 2018, 5:26 AM ]

Everyone is invited to a special BHS Fine Arts collaborative concert of the Choir, Band, Orchestra, Theatre Arts/Stagecraft, and Freshmen Academy Art programs. To celebrate its 75th anniversary, they will be presenting the musical Oklahoma! in a concert version, with an audience sing-along!
  • Thursday, November 1 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, November 4 at 3:00 p.m.
Bartlesville High School Fine Arts Center Auditorium

Tickets are $10 general admission with the ticket office opening one hour before each performance. Pre-sale ticket dates will be announced after 10/11. For more information, contact Vocal Music Director Margie Green.

Oklahoma! was the first musical by the team of composer Richard Rodgers and librettist Oscar Hammerstein II with dances by Agnes De Mille. Based on the 1931 play Green Grow the Lilacs by Claremore's Lynn Riggs, the original Broadway production opened 75 years ago in 1943. The box-office smash ran for an unprecedented 2,212 performances, and Rodgers and Hammerstein won a special Pulitzer Prize for it in 1944. It was the first American musical with an ethnic sound, words, and music entirely in the folk idiom. As fully integrated musical plays, Oklahoma! and the earlier musical Show Boat revolutionized the form as musicals that combined popular entertainment with continuity between the story and songs. 

In 1953 the musical's title song was chosen as the state song of Oklahoma, replacing the lesser-known Oklahoma - A Toast. There was an Oscar-winning film adaptation in 1955.

The play is set on a remote island. In the BHS version, the sorceress Prospero plots to restore her daughter Miranda to her rightful royal station by using illusions and manipulations. Prospero conjures up the storm of the play's title, which leads the usurper Antonio and the Queen of Naples to believe they are marooned on the island. There Antonio's lowly nature is revealed, the Queen is redeemed, and romance blossoms between Miranda and Ferdinand, the son of the Queen.

The Tempest

Art students worked behind the scenes on Homecoming decorations

posted Oct 1, 2018, 10:05 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Oct 1, 2018, 10:05 AM ]

For over a month, BHS art students and Art Club members worked behind the scenes making a banner, backdrop, and other decorations for Homecoming. Some students worked during tutorial periods and lunches and after school a few times each week, and some time in their art classes was also needed to complete the work. The backdrop was used for the Homecoming assembly and dance and will also be used for a forthcoming BHS Drama production of The Tempest.

Senior Maria Snider, Art Club President, headed up the work on the backdrop. Senior Logan Demaray, Art Club Treasurer, and junior Jaden Marda led the group making the banner. These students spent much time making the pieces come to life.
Pictured below in front of the Jungle backdrop are, left to right: Andreya Rouse, Aniseh Henio, Maria Snider, Ashlyn Sweat, and Cheyanne Turner.
