Texas Honor Roll

Dear Parents,

On behalf of our entire school community I want to say congratulations to you and your kids! Our school was chosen by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Institute for Productivity in Education (IPE) as a 2016 Texas Honor Roll recipient!

The Texas Honor Roll is part of a national effort known for its extensive and rigorous analysis of student achievement in public schools. Our school stood above other schools in the state because of our success in getting students to grade level achievement and beyond.

This year, the Honor Roll includes 727 public K-8 and high schools that are recognized for demonstrating consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps. The Honor Roll:

• Includes a measurement of improvement
• Is the only award given in collaboration with business leaders
• Includes graduation and dropout rate data
• No application process is necessary
• Establishes a higher bar of performance than any other award
• Takes into account equity and closing achievement gaps

We did not apply for this award (they found us!) and it is a great honor to have been chosen. We will be featured on the Honor Roll website and a banner has been designed for us to hang proudly at our school.

Thanks to the hard work of the students and teachers here at Horn ES we are being recognized for our achievement. This is a testament to the relentless focus on results that our school has shown over the years and to the hard work of our entire school community.

From all of us here at Horn ES, I give heartfelt congratulations. Together, we are improving education for all students by sharing our success.
