The quality of life in any community starts with the quality of its school system, and on this measurement, Mountain Home shines. From the diversity of school choice to innovative programming, learners can enrich their knowledge and accelerate their growth from kindergarten through a college degree without ever leaving town. The Mountain Home School District is the largest in the Twin Lakes area, serving more than 4,000 students across primary, middle, and secondary grades. The Bombers balance extracurriculars with academics, consistently scoring above state and national averages on standardized achievement tests, ACT, and advanced placement tests, and state benchmark exams. The school system works hand in hand with the local business community to provide students internship opportunities and prepare them for the rigors of college, the military, or the workforce after graduation. 

Other public school districts in the area include Cotter, Norfork, Flippin, and Yellville-Summit. Mountain Home Christian Academy, a private faith-based institution, offers another educational option for students in grades pre-K through 12. Small class sizes here provide individual attention in a caring, faith-centered environment.

Arkansas State University-Mountain Home, also makes its home here. Rated the No. 2 community college in the nation by Wallethub in 2019 and named in the top 150 community colleges in the nation three consecutive times by the Aspen Institute, this open-access, two-year campus is part of the Arkansas State University system. The university offers degrees through the A-State Degree Center, as well as a list of proficiency certificates, associate degrees, adult education, and workforce training through its School of Health Sciences, School of Business and Technology, and the School of Arts and Sciences. Partnering with local industry, the institution customizes its training programs to create the workforce of the future. And, through its cultural center, The Sheid, ASUMH brings concerts, exhibitions, theatrical performances, and speakers to Mountain Home, enriching the entire community.

The city of Mountain Home demonstrates its commitment to student success via the Mountain Home Promise Scholarship, which pays ASUMH tuition and fees for graduates of Mountain
Home High School. Students also have the opportunity to take concurrent classes while still in high school, saving families thousands of dollars in education costs. Lifelong learning is also supported by Mountain Home’s stunning Donald W. Reynolds Library, a centerpiece of literacy,
programming, and a source of great community pride.
