Gravette Eyeing Bella Vista

Cooper Elementary School is the only school in Bella Vista, but the Gravette School District is considering building a school there. The Gravette School Board will propose a 3.9-mill tax increase to district voters in September to add six classrooms at Gravette High School and build an elementary school on Lancashire Boulevard near the Highlands Gate. The new elementary would be on 17 acres donated by Cooper Communities and would house 232 students in its first year.
