Lindale High School has recently been selected by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Institute for Educational Productivity (IPE)  as one of 713 public schools in Texas to receive the title of 2015 Honor Roll school.

The Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools list and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. Schools receiving this distinction from leaders in the Texas academic and business communities have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.  For High Schools, the Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.

“I am so proud of the work our teachers and students have done to improve their academic success,” Principal Casey Neal said.  “I am constantly amazed at how great our school and community is.”

With so much press about the public school system, often in a negative light, ERP’s data about the true status of schools reveals that there is more to public education than communities may have realized.

“The American education system has a secret,” Jim Lanich, ERP president and CEO said. “Many schools are doing well … the Honor Roll proves it. Students are achieving at higher levels than anyone admits and more students than ever are succeeding when given the opportunity.  All schools, no matter what zip code they are in, can achieve this kind of success and leadership from the business community is critical to ensuring successes for all students.”

The annual Honor Roll award is made possible by support from numerous businesses and organizations including State Farm, AAA, Macy’s, Wells Fargo, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the and several private foundations.  Chevron Corporation provided specific support in the creation of the STEM Honor Roll.
