Our mission is to prepare students to successfully transition to higher education, career-readiness, and the workforce.

The Fort Smith Public Schools and the Adult Education Center serve the community by providing every student a comprehensive education of the highest quality in a safe and nurturing environment. We recognize the diversity of needs and aspirations of our students, and we are committed to the development of each individual as a successful, responsible, and productive citizen who is prepared for the challenges of the future.

Our long term Chief GED Examiner, Kaye Birkhead, passed away last week. After retiring from the Fort Smith Public Schools as a teacher, Kaye began working at the Fort Smith Adult Education Center in 2000.

She was well loved by students and staff, and will be missed. A book memorial has been set up in her honor. Kaye requested that books be donated to the children at the Bright Start Early Learning Center, which serves the children of Adult Education students.

To make a donation in her honor, send a check or children's books to the Fort Smith Adult Education Center, 501 S. 20th, Fort Smith, AR 72901. Please designate on the check that it is for the book memorial.
