For the second consecutive year, Lindale Junior High School has been selected as an Honor Roll School for being a “clear leader in getting students to grade level and beyond,’’ LISD publicity officials announced.
The Educational Results Partnership and the Institute for Productivity in Education selected LJHS for the award.
“We are honored to be selected as a Texas Honor Roll school for the second consecutive year,” said Lindale Junior High Principal Jeremy Chilek. “We are blessed with an exemplary staff whose dedication and passion is second to none. We are also thankful for a community who values education, with parents and guardians that prioritize academic success.”
The 2016 Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle, and high schools that demonstrate consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps.
This year, the Texas Honor Roll recognized 727 higher performing, higher poverty schools that are distinguished for their academic achievement and closing achievement gaps.
“Many schools across the country are doing well, even those with high numbers of historically disadvantaged students,” said Jim Lanich, ERP President and CEO. “The Honor Roll proves that all schools, no matter what zip code they are in, can achieve this kind of success. School and school district leaders have a great opportunity to find out what’s working at these Honor Roll schools and replicate it.”
