It’s off into the wild blue yonder – and beyond — for students at the new Cloverdale Aerospace Technology Conversion Charter Middle School! The reconstituted school opened on August 19 with a new staff and a new curriculum. That’s not all: the school day at Cloverdale is extended, giving students an extra 30 minutes of instruction time each day. The biggest change, however, is the aerospace technology theme that is infused throughout the curriculum.
While Cloverdale's new curriculum leans heavily on aerospace technology and includes curriculum from NASA and its Partner in Education, Pulaski Technical College, the main emphasis is literacy and accelerated achievement for all students. Cloverdale has high expectations for everyone and will ensure that all students are computer competent.
Some of the specialized technology at Cloverdale includes space flight simulator programs which will enable students to feel as if they are actually flying an airplane or the Space Shuttle. Students also will participate in virtual field trips which will enable them to visit NASA and other places of interest without actually leaving their classrooms.

Five... four... three... two... one... ignition... takeoff! Yes, Cloverdale is ready to take off into the wild blue yonder and educate students in a completely new way!
To help prepare for the new school year, Cloverdale Aerospace Technology Conversion Charter Middle School teachers and staff volunteered their time and expertise on July 24 at the Annual Community Festival in Southwest Little Rock. More than 30 Cloverdale volunteers gave back to the community at the festival; other civic groups from the neighborhood and around the city were represented as well.
The activities were part of the annual Community Festival which furthers the district's goal of educating the public about its new conversion charter school and to promote community awareness and pride in the Cloverdale community.
Cloverdale has been working with residents and community leaders in the Cloverdale community on a number of issues and concerns. The Little Rock School District, in conjunction with the Arkansas Department of Education, has made significant investments in the community as part of its new aerospace technology program at Cloverdale.
