Tennie Russell Primary School (TRPS) is located at 1110 Bella Vista Road (next to Sugar Creek Elementary). Our school serves 240 children who are three or four years old by August 1st of the year of enrollment. Priority is given to four year olds who will enter kindergarten the following school year. A wait list is also maintained each year and children are enrolled on a first come first serve basis, as space becomes available, with older children given priority on the waitlist too. The program is primarily funded by the Arkansas Better Chance for School Success state grant and children whose families meet income eligible guidelines may attend at no cost. Our curriculum focuses on the Arkansas Early Childhood Frameworks and each of our 12 classrooms have a certified teacher, as well as, a highly qualified teaching assistant. The TRPS follows the traditional Bentonville Public Schools calendar.
