Ten El Paso ISD schools named to Honor Roll

Ten El Paso Independent School District campuses were named to the 2018-19 Honor Roll by the Educational Results Partnership, a national educational nonprofit.

“EPISD continues to set the pace in academic achievement in the region,” Superintendent Juan E. Cabrera said. “Students in every corner of the District are reaching new heights in their learning, and our teachers are demonstrating that our innovative approaches to education are working.”

Cielo Vista, Hawkins, Hughey, Lamar, Mesita, Milam, Polk and Western Hills elementary schools, along with Silva Health Magnet and Transmountain Early College high schools were among the 855 public schools in Texas to be included in the Honor Roll.

Schools on the list demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in student outcomes over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.

For high schools, the Honor Roll also recognized campuses with high levels of college readiness.

The Educational Results Partnership performed national research and identified common sets of learning objectives and college- and career-readiness factors among high-performing schools that include:

  • Evidence-based instruction
  • Defined college- and career-readiness practices
  • Human capital investments
  • Production and monitoring of student performance data
  • Training and resourcing of staff to help student preparation.

All recognized schools will receive a banner to display on campus, and each school will be included in an online Honor Roll database with detailed information on student performance.  The list can be viewed at www.edresults.org.
