In 2019, Killeen ISD’s Clarke Elementary and Early College High School earned the title for two campuses – this year, five schools met the standard, setting a new record for the district. This year, 3,490 public schools were recognized across the nation.

Higher-performing honor roll schools “demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations,” according to the announcement.

The data analysis from the Educational Results Partnership revealed set of success factors in higher-performing Honor Roll schools, including:

  • Evidence-based instructional practices
  • A defined system-wide mission of college and career readiness for all students
  • An investment in human capital
  • Maintenance of data and assessment systems to monitor school and student performance
  • Resources and guidance to support schools’ efforts in preparing all students for college and career

These five campuses are a testament to the sustained focus on academic results and commitment to student success that our campuses, staff, and parent community have shown over the years.
