Five LISD Schools Recognized for High Achievement in Student Success
Posted on 04/26/2017

Leander ISD announced today that River Ridge Elementary School, Canyon Ridge Middle School, Florence W. Stiles Middle School, Four Points Middle School and Vandegrift High School were selected as 2016 Honor Roll schools by the Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Institute for Productivity in Education (IPE).

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

“We are incredibly proud to be recognized by education and business leaders in Texas as an Honor Roll School District,” said LISD superintendent Dan Troxell, Ph.D. “Our teachers and administrators work hard to achieve high expectations in student academic success, and this accomplishment is evidence that their hard work is paying off.”

“These Honor Roll schools are clearly improving outcomes for their students, as the academic data show,” said Charles Miller, chairman of IPE.

“Many schools across the country are doing well, even those with high numbers of historically disadvantaged students,” said Jim Lanich, ERP President and CEO. “School and school district leaders have a great opportunity to find out what’s working at these Honor Roll schools and replicate it.”
